There’s plenty of criticism coming towards CNN’s Chris Cuomo following the fallout from the allegations that the anchor worked to defend his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, during his sexual harassment scandal.
CNN suspended the host indefinitely, but some, like Meghan McCain, want the network to take an extra step. In an op-ed piece for the Daily Mail, McCain called for CNN to fire Cuomo, stating that he’s “unfit” for the job.
“Seriously, what does Chris Cuomo know about Jeff Zucker that is so compromising that Jeff doesn’t want the American public to know?” she wrote.
“At this point, I can’t come up with any other reason why Chris Cuomo has kept his job as a primetime anchor at CNN. For too long, Chris Cuomo has been given a pass by the media where others wouldn’t.”
CNN stated that it would administer a “thorough review” of the new documents released by the New York Attorney General’s office to learn the range of Cuomo’s involvement.
“The question I present to CNN and their stockholders is this, in an era where public trust in the media is at historic lows, how can you ethically and in good faith continue to employ a man who is little more than a mouthpiece for his brother and the Democratic party?” McCain wrote.
“We will be having conversations and seeking additional clarity about their significance as they relate to CNN over the next several days.”
MSNBC Intends to Get Ahead of Midterm Election Coverage
Over the following weeks and months, NBC News correspondents will pursue influential individuals in battleground states.
This year is a midterm election year, and Variety reports that MSNBC is getting ahead of the curb to provide coverage.
When host Chuck Todd appears on MSNBC’s “Meet The Press Daily” Wednesday and Thursday, he will do so from Georgia. Todd will meet Georgia officials and candidates for office.
As the “Meet the Press” host gathers with officials and candidates in Georgia, it’s part of a bid by NBC News to extend out across the country to find the most important stories that will impact this year’s midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
“You cannot be a national news organization and cover the campaign process from Washington and New York,” Carrie Budoff Brown, the NBC News senior vice president, said.
Over the following weeks and months, NBC News correspondents will pursue influential individuals in battleground states. The hope is that the network will get ahead-of-the-curve information to news and politics enthusiasts.
Todd intends to visit battleground states in the coming months, with special “Meet The Midterms” broadcasts that will examine Senate and gubernatorial races in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and elsewhere.
Kendis Gibson: Hyper-Partisan News Led to MSNBC Departure
Gibson heads to South Florida, where he will be working as a morning and noon newscast as a co-anchor at the local level with CBS4 News.
Former MSNBC weekend anchor Kendis Gibson provided a reason for his departure from the network on his way out as he’s set to join CBS4 News Miami.
In an interview with Variety, Gibson stated that he saw the “hyper-partisan” business of cable news at the network. Gibson hosted a weekend news show on MSNBC which began in 2019.
Furthermore, he was a host at ABC News, so Gibson has had a front seat to the demand that comes with working at a 24/7 cable news network over the past few years.
“I wanted to get away from working in the hyper-partisan 24/7 political news space,” Gibson said.
“This is a good chance to anchor a newscast that covers the full gamut of the news cycle which I love, including world news, entertainment news, human interest stories, and stories important to local communities — and in an awesome city with a big commitment to local news from the top down.”
Gibson heads to South Florida, where he will be working as a morning and noon newscast as a co-anchor at the local level with CBS4 News. A change from the national level news circuit.
“I love reporting on the full gamut of news: local, national, global, human interest stories and entertainment,” Gibson said. “I am thrilled to bring my passion for news to Miami as I embrace the opportunity to join CBS 4 and report on stories that resonate with our audience.”
Joy Behar: If Republicans Regain Power They’ll Censor Journalist
Behar told her audience during Tuesday’s broadcast that if Republicans regain power they would begin to censor journalists.
The View co-host Joy Behar told her audience during Tuesday’s broadcast that if Republicans regain power they would begin to censor journalists.
“I read a lot about what’s going on in the world and you know Hungary and Poland, and they’re doing very badly with freedom of speech,” said Behar.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg said this is part “of the big plan to control what happens in America.”
“Next thing comes the women,” Goldberg said. “We’re going to take your rights away just like we have taken X, Y, and Z because there will be nothing you can do.”
“That will happen here I think if the Republicans are back in power,” said Behar.
“You can see that they’re intractable right now. You cannot reason with these people. They are shameless, and they will destroy us. It sounds like it’s hyperbole, but I have been around a long time, and I’ve seen what can happen.”
