So, CNN has now kicked Chris Cuomo off their premises.
Recall that days ago, CNN indefinitely suspended him after documents released by the New York Attorney General’s office showed how he used his connections to try and help his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, following the latter’s sexual harassment scandal.

Sppeaking about all the drama, the former CNN anchor said on his SiriusXM radio show that “it hurts to even say it. It’s embarrassing.”
His admittance apparently didn’t change anything because the network had asked him to leave.
“Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense,” CNN said in a statement on Saturday. “We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately. While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate.”
