Chris Cuomo’s Book Release Cancelled After Scandal

Chris Cuomo's Book Release Cancelled After Scandal

Chris Cuomo’s book release will no longer happen at least for now, as the sacked CNN anchor continues to suffer from his alleged roles in his brother Andrew Cuomo’s scandal, and recent sexual harassment allegations against him.

According to the report by Associated Press the planned book launch by Chris Cuomo has been cancelled, as a spokesperson for Custom House, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers who spoke on the issue on Tuesday that stated that it would not be releasing Chris Cuomo’s book titled “Deep Denial.”

The report added that the book had been scheduled for the Fall 2022 and was billed as “a provocative analysis of the harsh truths that the pandemic and Trump years have exposed about America — about our strength and our character — and a roadmap of the work needed to make our ideals match reality.”

The spokesperson declined any additional comment.

Cuomo was fired by CNN on Saturday. He had been suspended indefinitely after records released by New York’s attorney general showed the host had participated in his brother’s defence efforts to a greater extent than previously known.

Chris Cuomo’s Book And The Alleged Sexual Misconduct:

The sacked CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was accused of sexual misconduct this week, the same week he was kicked out of CNN.

Attorney Debra S. Katz came forward Sunday to reveal she’d been retained by a woman who wanted to go public with an allegation against the ex-anchor something she was apparently inspired to do after hearing about his involvement in his brother’s own scandal.

She says while Gov. Cuomo’s mess played out in public, Chris came on the air for his own show and said, “I have always cared very deeply about these issues and profoundly so. I just wanted to tell you that.” Katz adds, “Hearing the hypocrisy of Chris Cuomo’s on-air words and disgusted by his efforts to try to discredit these women, my client retained counsel to report his serious sexual misconduct against her to CNN.”

According to NYT, the woman who is remaining anonymous for now, is a former junior colleague of Chris’ from another network, and her claims are unrelated to Gov. Cuomo.

Katz goes on to describe how she contacted CNN on Wednesday, a day after he has been suspended to report her client’s allegations against Chris and by Friday, she says she was already in discussions with the network to provide evidence and making the woman available for an interview with CNN’s outside counsel.

She finishes by saying, “My client came forward at this time because she felt in sharing her story and related documentation, she could help protect other women. She will continue to cooperate with CNN’s investigation into her allegations. 

Given the nature of her allegations, she wishes to remain anonymous, and we ask that you respect this decision.”

It’s not yet clear what exactly the woman is alleging against Chris, but his rep says the “apparently anonymous allegations are not true.” CNN says they already had cause to terminate Chris, but when they were made aware of this woman’s claims, they saw no reason to delay any further.
