A Relative Dilemma

by Alex Steelsmith

“CNN fires Chris Cuomo Amid Inquiry Into His Efforts to Aid His Brother…
The spectacle of a high-profile anchor advising his powerful politician brother amid scandal
was a longstanding headache for many CNN journalists… It also emerged that Andrew Cuomo
had arranged for his brother’s Covid tests to receive priority treatment by the state.”
The New York Times

Doubledy dippledy,
Cuomo the journalist
helped, and was helped by, his
governor bro.

Both were accustomed to
give and receive; every
quid was pro-Cuo.
