It was back in February when former Andrew Cuomo aide Lindsey Boylan shared some disturbing, detailed allegations of sexual harassment in a post on Medium, with screenshots to back up her claims. Cuomo‚Äôs camp responded by denying the allegations outright, even going so far as to release fight logs to prove she and Cuomo were never alone on a plane together ‚ÄĒ something she‚Äôd never claimed when she brought up the time he allegedly suggested they play strip poker.
As Twitchy reported Monday night, CNN released a statement which Brian Stelter posted to Twitter, just as @neontaster had predicted an hour before; Stelter gets to post the release to say he covered the story. We also reported that Stelter reminded CNN viewers that Chris Cuomo had addressed his role in assisting his brother with the sexual harassment allegations already:
For what it's worth, when Chris Cuomo addressed his actions on the air back in August, he said "this will be my final word on it," and he hasn't addressed the matter on TV since. https://t.co/rbaxBMNOhn

Consider Boylan unimpressed with Stelter‚Äôs coverage of his own network:

There‚Äôs no question that everyone at CNN knows what Chris Cuomo did, but they‚Äôre reportedly waiting for ‚Äúadditional clarity‚ÄĚ before doing anything.
We disagree on much, but on this, we agree.

The driver of the getaway car in a robbery is still robber, in the eyes of the law.

Brian Stelter‚Äôs one job at CNN is to make their ‚Äúreporting‚ÄĚ look credible. ‚ÄúReliable‚ÄĚ, one could say. He‚Äôs towing the company line yet again.

CNN is totally supportive in his cause to discredit and smear victims.

What has CNN done to prove otherwise?
‚ÄėFinal word‚Äô? Brian Stelter reminds us why his CNN colleague Chris Cuomo has already explained himself enough https://t.co/zIAX8eW9CS
