During an awkward segment, CNN host Chris Cuomo told his viewers “before we start tonight, let me say something that I’m sure is very obvious to you who watch my show and thank you for that. You’re straight with me, I’ll be straight with you.”
“Obviously, I’m aware of what’s going on with my brother,” Cuomo continued. “And obviously I cannot cover it, because he is my brother. Now, of course CNN has to cover it. They have covered it extensively and they will continue to do so.”

During the pandemic, CNN regularly featured “Cuomo brothers” segment that included lots of light hearted banter, including the famous “giant q-tip moment.”

Some on Twitter were not impressed with the explanation and responded to the tweet.

When would this obvious conflict of interest ever have been appropriate for a supposedly serious news organization? https://t.co/ucB1WpWtjx
