The bombshell documents released Monday by the New York Attorney General’s office showing Cuomo’s intense efforts to protect now-ousted Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo received minimal attention on CNN, which the liberal, scandal-plagued network only acknowledged after the network announced his suspension.
But none of the network’s biggest stars, from Wolf Blitzer to Jake Tapper, who was reportedly infuriated behind the scenes, offered no public condemnation of Cuomo’s actions.
Even Cuomo’s primetime bestie Don Lemon couldn’t even stomach the mention of the suspension.
Cuomo’s sudden disappearance from CNN’s airwaves was addressed only twice since the network’s announcement.
The first was by his primetime colleague Anderson Cooper, who awkwardly informed CNN viewers about Cuomo’s suspension while sitting across from Jeffrey Toobin, the network’s chief legal analyst who famously returned following his Zoom masturbation scandal last year.
The second occurred Wednesday on CNN’s poorly watched flagship morning program “New Day.” After recapping the controversy, network lackey Brian Stelter voorgestel “it’s possible” Cuomo could return as soon as January.
A CNN spokesperson rolled back Stelter’s comments, vertel Fox News, “Anything is possible but it’s all speculative until the review is complete. It’s not even been 24 hrs.”
