CNN wants to remain out of the conflict that their anchor, Chris Cuomo, is having with
his latest family controversies.

Recently, the anchor consulted his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is
in the middle of sexual harassment accusations, The Washington Post reports. Despite
Cuomo partaking in these consultations, CNN doesn’t plan to discipline its primetime
anchor.

“Chris has not been involved in CNN’s extensive coverage of the allegations against
Governor Cuomo — on air or behind the scenes. In part because, as he has said on his
show, he could never be objective. But also because he often serves as a sounding
board for his brother,” CNN’s statement said.

“However, it was inappropriate to engage in conversations that included members of the
Governor’s staff, which Chris acknowledges. He will not participate in such
conversations going forward.”

This situation isn’t the first time someone in the media needed to walk the journalistic
line recusing themselves from editorial decisions while having family members in or
running for government positions.

For example, At CBS News, former division president David Rhodes stayed away from
editorial decisions resulting in the coverage of his brother, Ben Rhodes, a national
security adviser throughout the Obama administration.

In a decision many already knew was coming following the leaked draft, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, overturned Roe v. Wade, which is the landmark enactment that established the constitutional right to abortion.

Since 1973, women have been permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy in the United States; however, now the decision on this matter will return to the states, with a good portion expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.

There was no shortage of news media reaction when the official ruling came down, some celebrating it while others shared concern for what’s to come a post-Roe v. Wade United States.
