Tuesday, Keith Olberman responded to a tweet from Josh Dawsey who wrote “Report confirms Chris Cuomo counseled brother on how to handle allegations, and says CNN anchor testified. “During his testimony, Chris Cuomo explained that there was discussion about remedial measures the Chamber should take in light of the sexual harassment allegations.”
Olberman responded by tweeting “This is an intolerable conflict of interest for @cnn. You cannot have an anchor formally consulting his brother on how to handle the media, when he has outsized influence on how a large player in the media covers his brother (or doesn’t). They cannot keep @ChrisCuomo on air.”
Fox News contributor Joe Concha also blasted CNN for not firing Chris Cuomo after the NY AG’s report said he helped his embattled brother defend against sexual harassment charges.
