Stelter's 'non-CNN voices' Cuomo panel includes former CNN staffer, professor who won't say CNN lost trust

Stelter, whose show “Fuentes fiables” has recently struggled with poor ratings, offered a timeline of notable moments that led to Cuomo’s termination Saturday after the ex-anchor was found to have helped his brother, ex gobernador de Nueva York. Andrew Cuomo, face sexual harassment allegations. The governor sexually harassed 11 women over the course of seven years, state attorney general Letitia James alleged in an August report.

He resigned in disgrace shortly after the findings. Y ahora el “Prime Time de Cuomo” host has lost his position after last week’s bombshell transcripts revealed he used his media influence to dig up dirt on the governor’s female accusers.

An investigation into Chris Cuomo’s behavior also found he had again been accused of sexual misconduct. Cuomo had previously been accused of sexual harassment by veteran TV producer Shelley Ross, who claimed he harassed her when the two worked at ABC News.

This was about not any single headache but about many headaches that continued to pile up,” Stelter said in the opening of Sunday’s show.

Stelter then introduced a panel of threenon-CNN voicesconsisting of AxiosSara Fischer, Goucher College media studies professor David Zurawik andRun Tell Thatpodcast host Mara Schiavocampo in an attempt, Stelter said, ser “as transparentas possible to viewers.

But a dig into one of the panelist’s recent past shows that Fischer worked for CNN Politics as a news assistant and later as a production assistant in 2013. And Zurawik refused to say Sunday that CNN has lost trust in the wake of the Cuomo brothers scandal.

It’s hard to say if CNN lost trust,” Zurawik said, only noting that CNN made the “Error” of not forcing Cuomo to ask who heserves.Zurawik said the correct answer would have beenthe public.

Zurawik noted a loss ofa sense of media ethics in our profession, especially in the last few years.

Fischer said she’s among those who want to know why CNN took so long to take action and what a further investigation will reveal about both Cuomo and the network at large.

Stelter called the situation aonce in a lifetime ethical dilemma,” adding he was not intending to defend his former colleague’s behavior. But Stelter has come to Cuomo’s defense in the past, including just last week.

“Por lo que vale, cuando Chris Cuomo abordó sus acciones al aire en agosto, él dijo, ‘This will be my final word on it,"Y no ha abordado el asunto en la televisión desde,” Stelter wrote.

Lindsay Boylan, the first woman to publicly accuse ex-Gov. Cuomo of sexual harassment, llamado Stelter complicit in the Cuomos’ “abuses of power.

What we mean when we say many people help in abuses of power along the way,” Boylan said in response to a Stelter tweet.

Stelter admitted it’s been abruising week for CNNand that there could bemore fallout to come.
