Disgraced CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo Says He Wanted To Kill Himself And Others Following CNN Firing
There was a time when Chris Cuomo was the most popular anchor at CNN. Even though he didn’t originally have the best time slot at the network, he worked his way to primetime and had the most-watched program for over a year.
But then in late 2021, everything changed. He was fired by the network for advising his brother, then New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, through a sexual misconduct scandal. It was believed that Chris was giving his brother intel on how the network was covering the case.
During a recent appearance on Anthony Scaramucci’s podcast, Open Book, Cuomo admitted to being in a very dark place after his firing.
I had to accept [my firing] because I was going to kill everybody, including myself. Things can consume you.
Thankfully, he didn’t kill himself or anybody else. Instead, he entered therapy, which made him realize he has made a lot of mistakes.
But still, he believes he was unfairly canned. He’s currently suing CNN for $60 million, “I believe that was taken, I believe wrongly. I will litigate that. I am not going to bitch about it in the press,” he said on the podcast.
These days, Chris has a new program on NewsNation, but he doesn’t sound all that proud of it.
In fact, he says it’s embarrassing to talk about because he’s not being watched by a lot of people. His show on NewsNation averages around 63,000 viewers per night, which is not great when compared to his days at CNN, when he was bringing in over a million nightly.
It’s hard to keep perspective on that because it’s kind of embarrassing. I will never be [No. 1] again.
Not with that attitude you won’t! Geez. Dude needs to stop feeling sorry for himself. He needs to up his therapy sessions because he still has a “me vs. the world” attitude. He has lived a better life than most and should be grateful.
