CNN’s Chris Cuomo Defends Interview With Brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo

Cuomo Cuomo“New Day” anchor Chris Cuomo defended himself against scrutiny that he shouldn’t have interviewed his older brother New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this morning about yesterday’s tragic train derailment in New York City.

“Obviously I did the intv because it was non political, and frankly, I invite the criticism—because it exposes the hollowness of a lot of what is out there,” Cuomo emailed The Daily Beast. “Critics say my intv was no diff than any other and then criticize anyway,” adding, “Think about that.

Former Fox News Anchor Cleared in Rape Case

“We have concluded that the established facts do not constitute a crime under New York criminal law,” a spokeswoman for the Manhattan District Attorney said last night. The case was handled by the DA’s office and not the police as Kelly is the son of New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“I am so thankful the investigation established what I’ve known all along,” said Kelly in a statement, “that I am innocent of the allegations that were waged against me.”

The story was reported on the “Today” show and “Good Morning America” this morning which had both reported the newsy when it broke January 26.

I saw one man being taken away in handcuffs. I couldn’t see what he did. The people toward the front were the most vocal. It wasn’t that the police weren’t allowing reporters to the front. It was the crowd. Just like a crowd at a rock concert. I only saw one other reporter trying to do a live shot in that crowd.

At the NY Times, Brian Stelter writes about some apparent misinformation spread by WNYW anchor Greg Kelly (who happens to be the son of NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly):
