COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

     The Cuomo's should be finished.  CNN “indefinitely” suspended host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday over his secret role in trying to defend his brother, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, from the sexual harassment allegations that forced him from office — and for using his journalistic resources to aid that effort.  CNN may bring Cuomo back after a slap on the wrist.
 
     The move came a day after state Attorney General Letitia James released a trove of subpoenaed records that include texts showing the “Cuomo Prime Time” star agreed to contact news industry “sources” for advance information on damaging reports regarding his older brother. In a prepared statement, CNN said the material “shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense.”  “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions,” the network said. “When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”

     CNN added: “However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.” Chris Cuomo’s CNN contract is worth $6 million a year, according to the Celebrity Net Worth website, and last year he told listeners of his SiriusXM radio show that he’d renewed the deal for an unspecified length of time, Variety reported. His benching came less than four months after Andrew Cuomo resigned in disgrace rather than face an all-but-certain impeachment over an Aug. 3 report released by James that found he’d sexually harassed 11 women, including nine current or former state employees.
