How much does he want ?! Kuomo has filed a lawsuit against CNN over its “smear campaign.”
Insulted former CNN goldsmith Chris “Fredo” Cuomo made headlines on Wednesday when he and his legal team dropped a huge “$ 125” [million] The arbitrator claimed that he had been the victim of a “smear campaign” by the network, obtained exclusively by the deadline.
“After months of legal anticipation after Jeff Zucker was shot in December 2021, Chris Cuomo has just launched the official inaugural Salvo, which is not only $ 125 million in cash, but looks like a protracted battle with CNN for his character and family drama. Dominic Patten, senior editor of Deadline, wrote.
According to the filing, Kuomo argued that “his journalistic integrity” had been “unfairly tarnished” by CNN and former boss Jeff Zucker. He claims that these smears “made it difficult, if not impossible” for him to “find similar jobs in the future and cost him more than $ 125 million …”
After being tempted by the ethical standards of journalism and helping his brother, he was supposed to have “huge paychecks” from his CNN contract and “lost his future wages as a result of an attempt to tarnish his reputation”. York Governor Andrew Cuomo, through his sexual misconduct allegations, including insulting one of his defendants.
Speaking about the ethics of journalism, Fredo and his team argued in the filing that CNN gave him “no reason to believe that Governor Kuomo was inconsistent with the standards and practices of his support network.” He then threw some of his colleagues, including his friend Lebu, under the bus:
Indeed, CNN developed a culture where network standards and practices were an ongoing goal, and they were changed to suit the views of CNN executives. And that culture started at the top with the Zucker and [Allison] Gollast. As long as Zucker and Goulst believed that CNN’s ratings would benefit them, they were willing to ignore the violation of traditional journalism standards by CNN personalities like Don Lemon and Jack Tapper, or even engage in blatant violations of journalistic ethics.
He even pointed to his own immoral behavior as evidence. “There is no better example of Zucker and Golst than the exception to the CNN rules for Kuomo to interview his brother in three months,” the filing said.
Kuomo further shouted that CNN and its staff were saying bad things about him after he was fired:
In fact, Zucker and CNN not only failed to instruct CNN staff not to insult Kuomo as required by the agreement, but they themselves publicly insulted Kuomo by violating the agreement, led by Zucker.
CNN’s chief media reporter Brian Stelter was mentioned a dozen times that someone was on a mission to defame him. “Brian Stelter, reported that internal CNN sources reported that Kuomo was ‘trying to burn the place,'” the filing noted. Stelter also told CNN that Kuomo was “not going out quietly,” suggesting that Kuomo would seek revenge for his termination.
“After Kuomo’s demise, Zucker claimed that Kuomo had broken his word and that Kuomo had misrepresented the amount of his support for his brother,” the filing added. “Other CNN workers have joined the calculated campaign to discredit Kuomo and tarnish his reputation.”
Only one person has ruined Fredo’s reputation. And he is in the mirror.
