Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center told Breitbart News on Sunday that CNN’s dismissal of Chris Cuomo was due to the collapse of the political future of former Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY).
He said Chris Cuomo’s value to CNN was wiped out after his brother stepped down as New York governor and lost his political future as a presidential candidate.
CNN fired Chris Cuomo on Saturday. The network claimed that the dismissal was due to “his involvement in the defense of his brother”. Andrew Cuomo resigned as governor of New York City in August after a state investigation found he had sexually harassed several women.
Gainor said Chris Cuomo’s job at CNN depended on Andrew Cuomo’s political career and future.
“It was long overdue,” Gainor said of Cuomo’s termination on SiriusXM. Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak. “They should have done it a long time ago, but CNN didn’t just clear it, they encouraged Chris Cuomo to promote Andrew Cuomo. The whole network got behind this fake … propaganda story that Andrew Cuomo was sort of proficient as he killed New Yorkers by sending COVID patients to nursing homes. “
In 2020, many left-wing media presented Andrew Cuomo as a “presidential” alternative to then-President Donald Trump.
“[CNN was] trying to build Andrew Cuomo as a fallback in case Joe Biden can’t cross the finish line, “Gainor remarked,” and that’s what most of the American media were doing, but especially CNN, and they were like, ‘Oh, we’ are going to have a potential presidential candidate’s brother ‘, and so that’s what they did, that meant all the media ignored all the talk about COVID, and how [Andrew Cuomo] failed, and they built him like he was really competent.
He continued, “[CNN] buried the sexual harassment allegations – all of it – until, of course, they didn’t need to [Andrew Cuomo] more. Then the sexual harassment allegations came out, and then, of course, from there we now see Chris Cuomo crash and burn, too.
Gainor concluded: “What’s interesting is that Andrew Cuomo didn’t lose his job because he killed thousands of New Yorkers. He lost his job for being a bastard, a sexual harasser, allegedly, and Chris Cuomo is sort of collateral damage because they don’t need him anymore. [at CNN]. “
