CNN’s Brian Stelter got more than he bargained for after one of his guests called out the network over their attitude toward New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“I would be remiss, Brian, if I didn’t mention CNN’s own huge media story here with Chris Cuomo,” Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple told host Brian Stelter.

Claimed “feminist” icon House Speaker Pelosi wouldn’t say Cuomo should go when asked by ABC News George Stephanopoulos who asked if the governor should resign.
“I said there’s zero tolerance for sexual harassment, and we have taken measures in the House of Representatives, very strong measures in the House under the leadership of Congresswoman Jackie Speier of California. What I said at the time that these revelations came forward, I said what these women have said must be treated with respect. They are credible and serious charges, and then I called for an investigation.
“I have confidence in the attorney general of New York. She has called for a, I think expeditious investigation, and again, with all the respect in the world for what these women have come forth and said. In terms of — you’re talking about New Yorkers now, in terms of generally speaking, people have to look inside themselves and say — Governor Cuomo also, how effective is their leadership in leading the state under the circumstances that are there? But I do think that the women deserve to hear the results of these investigations as does the governor,” she said.
“But you’re not calling on him to resign right now?” replied Stephanopoulos.
“I think we should see the results, but he may decide, and hopefully this result will be soon, and what I’m saying is the governor should look inside his heart. He loves New York, to see if he can govern effectively. That could be one of the considerations he has,” she concluded.
