Opinion: CNN is awfully quiet about Chris Cuomo
CNN isn’t a quiet place. As American politics and media have gotten louder and louder, so have its hosts and commentators, whether the topic is former president Donald Trump’s threat to the country, the ravages of Fox News or the natural disaster of the week.
Yet a hush has settled in at the network over journalist Shelley Ross’s claim that CNN host Chris Cuomo grabbed her buttock in 2005. In an opinion piece in the New York Times, Ross, who served as Cuomo’s boss at ABC’s “Primetime Live,” recounted how she ran into Cuomo at a going-away party for a colleague at a Manhattan bar. "I can do this now that you’re no longer my boss,” Cuomo reportedly told Ross after the grab. “No you can’t,” Ross responded, pushing Cuomo away.
