As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Fox News:
CNN’s media correspondent Brian Stelter addressed the firing of its primetime anchor Chris Cuomo.
The liberal network issued a statement Saturday evening announcing it had terminated Cuomo “effective immediately,” coming just days after he was suspended pending a review of the damning revelations from the New York Attorney General’s office about his involvement in protecting his scandal-plagued brother, ousted Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The article goes on to state the following:
“While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate,” CNN stated.
As the news broke Saturday afternoon of Cuomo’s firing, CNN hosts Jim Acosta and Brian Stelter weighed in.
“Chris Cuomo, one of the most popular anchors at CNN, one of the best-known names in television news, violated journalistic ethics and norms not once or twice, but many times and that’s ultimately what is the result of today’s news, Jim,” Stelter said during the live television announcement.
“What we didn’t know until tonight, Jim, is that an outside law firm came in and went through the thousands of pages of text messages and sworn testimony that was released back on Monday. So there was clearly something in those documents that was found to be a serious breach of standards and practices,” he added.

Stelter tweeted another clip from the segment, as he said, “I think this may be a situation where it was death by a thousand cuts, where there were just so many headaches time and time again involving Chris Cuomo that even though many viewers loved ‘Cuomo Prime Time,’ looked forward to his show, he was causing so many headaches for the network and for CNN staffers that ultimately this decision was reached.”
“I do think, you know, this is a moment where journalistic ethics are at play. I know there were many CNN staffers very unhappy with the situation, very frustrated by Chris Cuomo. At the same time, Jim, I was hearing from some fans of Chris, some viewers who said we understood he was looking out for his family,” Stelter added.
One of the points I made on @CNN TV tonight: This may have been a case of death-by-a-thousand-cuts. Chris Cuomo was continually causing headaches for management. And the headaches were likely to continue. pic.twitter.com/YZJBiPRwTS

CNN released the following statement Saturday:
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. We have 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.
