As we told you Saturday evening, CNN announced that the previously suspended Chris Cuomo has now had his employment terminated. CNN said “additional information” came to light during an investigation into Cuomo coordinating with his brother Andrew to give the then-New York governor a public relations boost, among other things. Chris Cuomo’s subsequent statement didn’t address the “additional information” that CNN said caused them to fire him.
In the wake of all that, people are wondering what “additional information” CNN found out about after they retained a law firm to conduct an investigation:
I reallllllllly want to know what is the "additional information" that CNN got on Chris Cuomo.

CNN saying they fired Cuomo after finding “additional information” on him while simultaneously refusing to release it is peak CNN.

Karol Markowicz has a suspicion:
Where do I place my $5 bet that this is ultimately NOT about Chris Cuomo helping his brother? The rumor right now is Chris has his own sexual harassment allegations. I'll buy that, or something else, not buying it was because he "helped" Andrew. https://t.co/ncJHo1V2ou

If New York Post reporter Julia Marsh’s source is correct, that might be an accurate guess:
Source tell me the “additional information” that’s come to light mentioned at end of CNN statement are sexual harassment allegations https://t.co/n5j2nzXoUB

That “additional information” remains to be confirmed, but it speaks volumes (none of them good for CNN) that their anchor working with his brother to shore up his image and cover up the truth wasn’t enough to convince CNN to fire him.
CNN knew this for a long time. They know others will now report on it so they are hoping the stink stays off of them by firing him.
It doesn't.😏 https://t.co/WSTr54sQWW

You mean like the ones that appeared in The NY Times and CNN still took no action over? https://t.co/MBao60Nd47

He was fired on a Saturday after less than a week of 'investigation', makes you wonder how widely known this already was at CNN https://t.co/UKtedUEMMg

Runs in the family, I guess. https://t.co/5XXGLwh5C0

So both Cuomos grossly abused their positions and it was fine but both ended up being forced out over sexual harassment allegations?
