The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple FINALLY noticed that CNN has a major conflict of interest issue after they let Chris Cuomo cover his brother, the Governor of New York:

Welcome to the party, pal, but where were you 9 months ago?

Flashback to June of 2020:

Chris was called out at the time:

And it wasn’t just conservative media pointing this out:

Back then, it was how California was doing so much better than New York (oops):

So, what *was* going on behind the scenes at CNN? That’s the question:

Too bad CNN doesn’t have a dedicated media reporter and a team of “Reliable Sources” to investigate!

CNN told Wemple that they made an “exception to a rule that we have had in place since 2013 which prevents Chris from interviewing people and covering his brother, and that rule remains in place today”:

Boy, it’s a real mystery why CNN threw that rule into the toilet, right? From July 1, 2020:

But now that things have turned sour, CNN just thinks they can put the rule back in place like it never happened?
