CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo kicked off Monday’s Prime Time by finally addressing his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s (D) multiple sexual harassment allegations, just in time for a third young woman to accuse him of unwanted sexual advances. The announcement? That he’s not going to be covering any of the allegations against him.
Two weeks ago, news broke that CNN had decided to reinstitute a ban to keep Chris from reporting on Andrew’s nursing home deaths scandal. The timing turned out to be perfect since ever since then, there’s been a steady drip of young women coming forward with sexual harassment allegations against the Governor.
“Before we start tonight, let me say something that I am sure is very obvious to you who watch my show, and thank you for that. You’re straight with me. I’ll be straight with you,” Chris said to his audience. “Obviously, I am aware of what is going on with my brother. And obviously, I cannot cover it because he is my brother.”
