CNN blasted for explanation of Chris Cuomo’s preferential COVID testing thanks to his brother

Per Josh Dawsey, Wapo:

NEW: As NY struggled, Cuomo family & others close to gov received special access to covid tests, as well as quick results & special treatment. A state doctor, for example, made treks to Chris Cuomo’s house in the Hamptons.

Per the NY Post, critics ripped CNN on Wednesday for its defense of anchor Chris Cuomo amid a report that he was given priority coronavirus testing early in the pandemic thanks to his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A CNN spokesperson said: “It is not surprising that in the earliest days of a once-in-a-century global pandemic, when Chris was showing symptoms and was concerned about possible spread, he turned to anyone he could for advice and assistance, as any human being would.”
