#79 - Chris Cuomo and Chris Wallace: A Tale of Two Journalists

Description

Over the last 10 days, we have seen two television journalists have high-profile exits from their employers. First, Chris Cuomo, the brother of disgraced former New York governor Andrew Cuomo was fired by his employer, CNN, after an investigation revealed Chris had been working and leveraging his position to try and discredit those who attacked his brother Andrew’s actions as governor. After his firing, the New York Times reported that sexual harassment allegations are also being lodged against the younger Cuomo. The firing of Cuomo and the departure of Wallace serves as an appropriate yin and yang of television media and displays why the public lacks trust in media institutions. In this episode, I break down both departures and talk about what it means for the future of media in the United States and how we got to the point where a character is more representative of the industry than a respected journalist like Wallace.
