The Cuomo Brothers were rightfully slammed for that. And according to this journalist, that’s the story:

Chris Cuomo: Breaks basic journalistic norms

CNN’s Chris Cuomo and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo drew a great deal of criticism for what conservatives viewed as an unserious discussion between the two on the coronavirus pandemic.
It shouldn’t just be conservatives criticizing the Cuomos’ performances; everyone of any political stripe should be able to recognize awfulness when they see it. But “everyone slams” just doesn’t have the same cachet, you know? Better to focus on conservatives’ response so people remember that they’re the bad guys here.
