CNN is receiving harsh criticism, according to Fox News.
CNN “only tossed scraps to the viewers they treat like small-brained proles with only 96 seconds over two news briefs,” Curtis Houck said.
CNN hardly spent any time going over Lindsey Boylan’s allegations against NY Governor Andrew Cuomo regarding sexual harassment.
After a day of silence from CNN on Lindsey Boylan's claims about Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), they end their on-air blackout….with a 39-second news brief from John King. Of course, he frames it as https://t.co/B49nmBUlcA did — Cuomo denies it and Boylan is running for office. pic.twitter.com/bNNFWk4Szx

“I bet CNN’s audience was shocked to find out that corroboration is required,” wrote Journalist Eddie Zipperer.
“The hypocrisy of the left once again, ladies and gents. We believe all women’ until we don’t,” a viewer wrote.
“It’s good to see that CNN is handling Cuomo’s harassment allegations with the same even-handed, objective approach they displayed during the Kavanaugh proceedings.”
Regarding the allegations against Gov. Cuomo, @jaketapper says "CNN has been unable to corroborate Boylan's allegations."

I am grateful for the support I’ve received since telling my story – not just from people in New York but across the country. When we show up & support victims, we make it easier for others to come forward. Only by shining a light on this kind of abuse will we be able to end it.

“And again, after that, evening hosts Wolf Blitzer and Erin Burnett refused to mention Cuomo, and primetime hosts Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon followed the lead in helping Fredo and his brother keep their viewers from negative headlines surrounding the ‘Luv Guv,’” Houck wrote.
More from Fox News:
CNN’s entire primetime lineup continued to ignore Boylan’s claims that the governor after the network only devoted 96 seconds to them explosive news during less-watched daytime programming.
“Cuomo Prime Time” namesake Chris Cuomo couldn’t mention the story if he wanted to, as CNN has implemented a ban on the host from covering his big brother. CNN previously lifted the ban when the once-popular governor was considered a coronavirus hero but reinstated it once multiple scandals began to make national headlines.
