As we told you Thursday evening, CNN’s designated Fox News watchers went out of their way to avoid doing too deep of a dive into their own Chris Cuomo’s “violation of traditional journalistic standards” in advising his own brother who happens to be the governor of New York.
But for what it’s worth, Chris Cuomo offered an apology, which was delivered via personnel from the same network that allowed him to promote his brother continually:
CNN's @ChrisCuomo apologizes: "I put my colleagues here, who I believe are the best in the business, in a bad spot. I never intended for that, I would never intent for that, and I'm sorry for that." pic.twitter.com/IeLtmcUT8g

And after all that time CNN didn’t take issue with Cuomo doing what can only be assumed to be helping pump up his brother’s book sales?
"I'm family first, job second."
He only has this job because of his family. https://t.co/DoiiosrdY3

Another media scold who has no commentary on this besides being a home team stenographer. https://t.co/4rLIFlILDz

“I know where the line is” he says immediately after apologizing for crossing the line. https://t.co/MTjubwqxey

There was a time when a respectable journalist would have taken this opportunity to put themselves on hiatus. Hell there was a time when journalism held a modicum of ethics yet here we are. https://t.co/CAdTnOWzdo

This only makes sense if you read this as "I never intended for [me to get caught]." https://t.co/2VJoImK2Yh

That’s abundantly clear.
