NEW YORK — CNN says it was inappropriate for news anchor Chris Cuomo to be involved in phone calls with the staff of his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
The Washington Post reports that the CNN news anchor was involved in strategy sessions on how to respond to sexual harassment allegations against his older brother.
The Post said Chris Cuomo advised not resigning in the wake of the accusations, which his brother has not done. CNN has not disciplined its prime time anchor for being involved in the phone calls.
Chris Cuomo apologized on his show Thursday night for being involved in the calls.
Cuomo has come under fire lately and is being investigated by the New York State's Attorney General's office for allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.
