    CNN fires Chris Cuomo for helping brother deal with scandal
    By DAVID BAUDER and MICHELLE L. PRICE

    NEW YORK (AP) — CNN fired anchor Chris Cuomo on Saturday after details emerged about how he assisted his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as the politician faced sexual harassment allegations earlier this year.

    The network suspended Chris Cuomo earlier in the week to investigate his conduct, after New York’s attorney general released details showing he was more involved than previously known in helping to strategize and reach out to other journalists as his brother fought to keep his job...

        About time!
        The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

          Mildly curious about who will replace him.


          And since MSNBC takes in disgraced anchors, and Brian Williams has announced he's leaving, maybe Fredo will land on his feet

            So this is about the time that leftist groups will focus on getting either Hannity or Carlson fired as sort of a payback for something conservatives had nothing to do with.

              Agreed. I do respect due process enough that I'm not enraged it took this long.

                I am. Not because it took this long after this incident, but that it didn't happen after any of his earlier incidents.

                  At the very least his past stunts should have landed him in double secret probation where this latest revelation resulted in immediate termination.

                    I hear Brian Stetler is the current favorite. He's at least as dumb as Freddo, so he'll be a perfect replacement.

                      Yep, not surprised. Possible even more dumb.

                          I've been hearing that they might give Anderson Cooper another shot (IIRC, Cuomo replaced him), or go with John Berman, Alisyn Camerota or Fareed Zakaria from in-house. Lisa Ling and Reza Aslan from outside have also been mentioned.

                              Of those I listed that would only eliminate Berman.
