Things are getting worse for CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Last week, veteran television journalist Shelley Ross wrote a piece for the New York Times in which she described an incident of inappropriate groping by the Cuomo Prime Time host. Now, another story has surfaced from Cuomo’s former executive producer Melanie Buck.
According to the New York Post, last year “the female producer of Chris Cuomo’s show ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ begged to leave his show after the pair clashed over ‘significant differences’ — with multiple TV sources saying she found the hot-headed host’s behavior threatening.”
“A CNN insider confirmed Buck went to CNN boss Jeff Zucker and asked to be taken off Cuomo’s show and moved to another department, which he agreed to,” the Post added.
Meanwhile, major media outlets refuse to report on the allegations, including ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN. “Notably, all five major networks also initially avoided the sexual harassment scandal that ultimately derailed the political career of Cuomo’s brother, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo,” Fox New reports.
CNN has not responded to either of the allegations.
