“みなさん、こんにちは, クリス・クオモです, それを追いかけましょう, クイックノート, 明らかな, 私はCNNから停止されました,” クオモは水曜日に彼のSiriusXMラジオ番組で、プロデューサーに音楽をカットするように言ったと言った.
“You know this already. It hurts to even say it, 恥ずかしいです, but I understand it and I understand why some people feel the way they do about what I did,” Cuomo said. “I’ve apologized in the past and I mean it, it’s the last thing I ever wanted to do was compromise any of my colleagues and do anything but help.”
CNN suspended Cuomo on Tuesday following stunning revelations from the New York Attorney General’s investigation into his brother, 元ニューヨーク政府. アンドリュー・クオモ, NS。, who resigned amid scandal earlier this year. CNN has said Cuomo would be sidelined “pending further evaluation” of the damning documents released by the state’s Attorney General that indicate his role in helping his brother was more prominent than he previously let on.
‘I know they have a process that they think is important and I respect that process, so I’m not going to talk about this anymore than that,” Cuomo said before diving into regular programming on SiriusXM’s “それを追いかけましょう。”
Transcripts from Cuomo’s interview with state investigators indicated the CNN star would reach out to media sources to find out about his brother’s accusers before they came forward publicly. Text messages also indicated he snooped on journalists about upcoming stories that would make his brother look bad, and relayed the information to governor’s aides.
Cuomo’s admission in the newly released testimony also contradicted what he told CNN viewers in August when he claimed, “私は兄の状況についてマスコミに電話をかけたことは一度もない。”
CNN’s initial statement declared: “ニューヨーク州検事総長室は月曜日に、クリス・クオモの兄の弁護への関与に新たな光を当てる記録と展示を発表しました。. ドキュメント, 彼らの一般公開前は私たちが知らなかった, 深刻な質問を提起する. クリスが兄のスタッフにアドバイスをしたことを私たちに認めたとき, 彼は私たちの規則を破り、私たちはそれを公に認めました. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. しかしながら, これらの文書は、私たちが以前に知っていたよりも、彼の兄弟の努力へのより高いレベルの関与を示しています。. 結果として, クリスを無期限に停止しました, さらなる評価を待っています。”
CNN’s in-house media reporter Brian Stelter has since speculated he could return to the network as early as January, but a spokesman told Fox News Digital that was speculative and nothing will be definitive until after a review.
Liberal news organizations, women’s groups, journalists from across the political spectrum and women who accused the former governor of sexual misconduct have all called for CNN to permanently part ways with Cuomo.
