CNN suspends Chris Cuomo indefinitely after revelations he used job to help his brother

On Tuesday, CNN host Chris Cuomo was suspended from the outlet following revelations that he had a larger role to play in defending his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, than previously thought.

“Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the network said. “But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. 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,” CNN  said.
