Cuomo reacted by saying “This is not how I want my time at CNN to end but I have already told you why and how I helped my brother.”
“So let me now say as disappointing as this is,” he continued. “I could not be more proud of the team at Cuomo Prime Time and the work we did as CNN’s #1 show in the most competitive time slot. I owe them all and will miss that group of special people who did really important work.”
