(AmericanProsperity.com) – Reputable news organizations have rules and ethics to ensure their journalistic integrity. When a news source lacks these things, their reporters and on-air personalities can get away with quite a bit without even a slap on the wrist. For CNN and host Chris Cuomo, the company’s lack of policy and morals has brought about intense scrutiny and criticism over the past few days.
Recent reports showed how CNN host Chris Cuomo has been advising his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), on how to deal with allegations of sexual harassment. Cuomo has also defended his brother on air, despite the fact he’s not been cleared of these allegations. This blatant conflict of interests for a reporter, however, has gone uncondemned by CNN and its leadership.
The Hill shared more about the developing story:

Former CNN staffer Steve Holmes told The Hill that the company doesn’t have “any written policies” about ethics, so there are no fireable offenses, even in such cases as this. So, perhaps rather than continuing to advertise themselves as reliable news, it’s time CNN acknowledges its blatant bias and unethical reporting so readers can move on to more reliable news.
