CNN is a train wreck.
Chris Cuomo is now going after his former colleagues like Don Lemon and Brian Stelter, they’re attacking him back, and the ratings are still terrible.
Chris Cuomo is also now demanding the insane amount of $125 million from the network.
The Hill reports:
Chris Cuomo hits CNN with $125 million arbitration claim: report
Former anchor Chris Cuomo has filed an arbitration claim seeking $125 million from CNN, according to a new report.
Attorneys for Cuomo wrote that he had “been damaged in countless ways” due to the network “unceremoniously” firing him late last year.
“Cuomo has had his journalistic integrity unjustifiably smeared, making it difficult if not impossible for Cuomo to find similar work in the future and damaging him in amounts exceeding $125 million, which includes not only the remaining salary owed under the Agreement, but future wages lost as a result of CNN’s efforts to destroy his reputation in violation of the Agreement,” the filing reads, according to Deadline.com. “Cuomo now seeks to recover the full measure of his damages against Turner and CNN.”
Former CNN President Jeff Zucker fired Cuomo in December for cause, saying the prime-time anchor had misled him and other top executives at the company about his contacts with aides to his brother Andrew Cuomo, then the governor of New York, and journalists covering news of sexual harassment against him.
A day before he was fired, CNN reportedly received a letter from a prominent defense attorney detailing allegations of sexual harassment against Chris Cuomo, which the anchor has denied.
What a mess.
In Chris Cuomo's $125M arbitration filing, he accuses CNN of "selectively enforcing" its rules, highlighting Don Lemon's ties to Jussie Smollett, the Jake Tapper-Sean Parnell saga, and Jeffrey Toobin's masturbation scandal as "exceptions" CNN made. https://t.co/dWe3k0xoo3

Won’t it be ironic if Chris Cuomo ends up bringing down CNN?
