CNN Fires Santorum over accusation of racist remark, keeps Chris Cuomo despite scandal

CNN has come under scrutiny for firing Republican Rick Santorum over accusations of a racist remark, while keeping Chris Cuomo, despite scandal over him giving him advice to his embattled brother.

In a speech last month “we birthed a nation from nothing…I mean, yes, we have Native Americans, but candidly, there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.”

Cuomo told Santorum “This seemed like you were trying to erase diversity in the interest of some White Christian right.”

Santorum replied he “misspoke,” and that he was “not trying to dismiss Native Americans.”

Meanwhile, Chris Cuomo is under fire himself, having admitted to advising his older brother, embattled NY Governor Cuomo who has several sexual harassment allegations against him.
