The Cuomo family has made headlines-of-plenty this past week.

President Joe Biden has said publicly that New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo should “resign” following sexual harassment allegations.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo has been under fire for refusing to discuss his brother’s situation on his primetime cable news show.

Media members far and wide have been all over it.

Barrett News Media aggregated the headlines surrounding the coverage of CNN and Chris Cuomo.

The New York Post calls the lack of coverage “confusing” and questions why Chris hasn’t been disciplined by his employer for trying to “cover it up.”

An opinion piece in USA Today says that this entire case is bad for journalism.

Meghan McCain of The View calls it the worst type of “nepotism.”

Michael Dougherty of The National Review says you can’t fault Chris Cuomo for not talking about his brother.

The Boston Herald’s Joe Battenfeld asks CNN to take “embarrassing Chris Cuomo off the air.”

Stay tuned to Barrett News Media for continued coverage of the Cuomo saga, tracking the moves CNN decides to make – or not make – surrounding one of their network faces.
