Chris Cuomo on his firing from CNN: "I'll never be what I was."

Chris Cuomo is speaking out after his ousting from CNN more than a year ago, claiming "I'll never be what I was" in an interview with the "No BS News Hour" podcast last week.

"I am emotionally and psychologically beat up and changed by what I went through," Cuomo told podcast hosts Charlie LeDuff and Karen Dumas, as reported by the New York Post on Saturday. "My show is different because I am different, not that I was in some lefty silo."

Cuomo was fired from CNN in December 2021, after he helped his brother and former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo handle an array of public sexual misconduct accusations that led to the governor's resignation.

The former CNN anchor now hosts a flagship primetime show on the cable network NewsNation, where he's recently landed high profile interviews with subjects like Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West.

Cuomo told LeDuff and Dumas he wasn't given the opportunity to say goodbye to his staff after CNN abruptly fired him, per the Post. But the news anchor still said he views CNN as the "best news organization in the world."

He further asserted that he never influenced news coverage of his brother after accusations of sexual misconduct surfaced, per the Post.

"I never did anything to manipulate media coverage of my brother," he told the podcast hosts.

Cuomo added that the media fallout he experienced after being fired by CNN has changed the way he conducts his new show on NewsNation, the Post reported.

"I'll never be number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on some bulls–t media power list. I'm okay with that," he told LeDuff and Dumas.

His employers at NewsNation must be thrilled with this interview.

He's basically trashing them, by saying they're nothing, compared to the big networks.

He should have seen the problems inherent in being a news anchor whose brother is a controversial state governor and taken extra steps to make sure there was not even the appearance of a conflict of interest. I have zero sympathy for him.

You poor thing. We all weep for you.

You've proved that you shouldn't be in a public facing news organization because you are too stupid to realize what a pompous, clueless, asshole you sound like.

Are. Not just sound like. You are a a pompous, clueless, asshole.

I was a fan of this hot mess, but I knew that he was, well, a hot mess who would soon burn out. For me, he lost his "unpredictable iconoclast" credentials after the ridiculously inauthentic, bad-student-film footage of him "reemerging" from his (supposed) Hamptons-basement quarantine digs to hug his family members for the first time in weeks. And the kids were almost visibly rolling their eyes. Didn't help that he'd been captured on video during that time yelling at an intrusive passerby -- he clearly hadn't quarantined. I root for him, because he's raw and weird, but I'll bravely power on if he quietly vanishes.

This guy has the ego to end all egos. His CNN show was me, me, me, me, me. On split screen he was shown in extreme close-up while his guests were medium shot just in case you didn't notice he was the star of the show. On transitions to the next scheduled show he would go on and on, didn't understand that his time slot had EXPIRED. I was relieved when CNN fired him, not because of what he did but because I couldn't stand his ego-maniacal presence. He couldn't go far enough into the void AFAIC.

In keeping with the poster upthread who highlighted his extreme egomaniacal tendencies, I think he faked covid during the first wave to keep himself front and centre of the whole narrative. At the very least he faked the severity of his symptoms.

For the very first time, I tried watching his show tonight on NewsMax. I got about fifteen minutes into it, and changed the channel. His show is dull and whiney. Not for me. (Though he's still eye candy).

[quote]The younger Cuomo brother helped craft the official response to allegations against his brother, arguing that it should be framed in terms of a "cancel culture" dominating the liberal wing of his brother's Democratic Party. Cuomo also said he had identified one of the women accusing the governor of sexual harassment and attempted to find out what would be in a forthcoming article about then-Gov. Cuomo by the investigative journalist Ronan Farrow.

He did even more.

I just saw this.

It's terrifying.

It's bizarre that as a media personality he doesn't have the wherewithal not to announce this publicly, but since he didn't actually go through with this, someone should publicly examine his mentality and get to the bottom of it.

Nearly every mass shooting is committed by some white guy with a grudge about feeling disenfranchised and wronged.

And then afterward, media pundits like Chris Cuomo and politicians like fill-in-the-blank talk about the need to address mental illness. It's a red herring. These murders are not related to mental illness; they're caused by men who can't live with bruised egos.

Mental illness ranges from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder-level psychosis to paralyzing depression and anxiety disorders. Mental illness is not a rich dude getting fired for violating journalistic ethics or some poor white guy not getting laid in Flint, Michigan or some poor white Republican in Texas whose drunk mother berates him taking out his rage in some demented belief that Jesus plus spraying bullets equals how to get to heaven.

Cuomo should be probed about this for the rest of his life.

He was paid a fortune to blow hot air.

Something I don't understand is why people like the Kardashians and Paris Hilton et al are lambasted for being famous with no discernable talent to justify it, and the same people who bitch endlessly about the Kardashians invading their news spaces lionize people like Chris Cuomo, Anderson Cooper et al.

They likewise have no discerable talent other than presenting themselves pompously and reading from a teleprompter mostly without stumbling (which Paris Hilton and the Kardashians also can do).

I suppose they also have to know how to wrap up a conversation in time for a commercial and when to look at the camera with the light on it but those are literally the only requirements other than being photogenic and arrogant.

And people fucking IDOLIZE their news readers and pundits and regard them as modern-day oracles. It makes me question the intelligence capacities of news watchers.

I couldn’t stand the fake love sessions between him and Don Lemon every night. Chris Cuomo seems like the type to pretend to accept/love the gays, but call them faggots in private.

If he had an iota of self-awareness, he might say something along the lines of: I let my love protectiveness of my brother get the best of me & in doing so, I lost the trust of my company, my co-workers & my audience (he may not be able to outright admit it due to legal implications). I'm still committed to journalism & I'm grateful that I still have a forum to do what I'm passionate about & a conflicted world needs now more than ever (or something along those lines)

Instead, he disses his current employer & talks about how butt hurt he is instead of acknowledging his clear violation of ethics, not just some "lefty silo" nonsense. We knew he was a stunt queen, but I'm kind of surprised he such an idiot

Both Cuomo are arrogant bullies but I still don’t know why both had to be destroyed. The Gov was a jerk who flirted with pretty girls and kissed some women aggressively. His bro tried to help,him deal with the blowback. No criminal or civil,charges were filed unless I’m wrong. Seems like overkill.

I remember just a few years ago when CNN invented a faux buddyhood between Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo, with Chris doing a nightly 'handoff' with stupid fake banter between the two of them, and all these people online bought it and celebrated their fabulous friendship. It was so stupid, one of those things that makes me question if not the intelligence capacity then at least the impressionability capacity of the general populace.

And the other Cuomo. People celebrating him as a hero and acting like he was the public-health equivalent to Anthony Fauci and he totally ate it up. Then the bizarre 'pierced nipples' thing that made him a 'hot daddy.'

Then these pigs' real natures are revealed and everyone loses their memories of who they thought they were worshiping.

And then both Cuomos rage against the unjust world and lament that they will never again be who they never really were.
