Former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is facing sexual misconduct allegations and his brother allegedly crafted a defence for him.

A CNN spokesperson says the documents “Raise serious questions”.

CNN initially understood Chris’ need to put family first and job second but “these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew”.

Chris Cuomo has been suspended indefinitely, pending further evaluation.

He will be replaced by Anderson Cooper who will anchor the 9 pm slot on Tuesday.

Ethical boundaries

A commentator at The Daily Beast, Wajahat Ali says there are ethical boundaries in the media industry that cannot be crossed.

“This shows you the kind of incestuous relationship between politics and media that we all should be concerned about, especially in the realm of journalism,” Ali said.

“You need to have a clear boundary here.”
