He didn’t pull any punches…
According to The Blaze, CNN hosts were stunned when the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple turned on the network in an appearance and criticized them for airing “love-a-thons” for embattled Gov. Andrew Cuomo now that he has been accused multiple times of sexual harassment.
“I would be remiss, Brian, if I didn’t mention CNN’s own huge media story here with Chris Cuomo, the anchor at the nine o’clock hour, who covered Andrew Cuomo and had all these wonderful love-a-thon interviews with him, more than ten of them,” Wemple said to CNN host Brian Stelter. “And they suspended the conflict of interest rule for Chris Cuomo for those interviews, yet all of the sudden they’ve enforced it again now that Andrew Cuomo is in the midst of a historic scandal in the Albany State House.”
“So, I think that is a major black eye for CNN,” Wemple added. “I will say that you and other people have covered the Cuomo story very aggressively, so I do want to be fair about this, but it is a major black eye for this network.”
