Worst in Media No. 2 – The Cuomo team-up

December 30, 2021

By Adam Guillette

Accuracy in Media is counting down the worst media blunders of 2021. Come back tomorrow to see No. 1 on our list.

Andrew Cuomo, Chris Cuomo, CNN, and the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences were an unlikely team-up, but together their actions were the second-worst thing we saw in the media this year.

First, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo an Emmy for his handling of the pandemic. Accuracy in Media responded with phone calls, emails, and even a mobile billboard outside their office in Manhattan. Eventually, his Emmy was revoked and Accuracy In Media responded with emails thanking the Academy for its delayed – but correct – decision.

Later, reports emerged that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo had been using his position at the network to help save his brother’s political career. Accuracy in Media responded with another appearance of our famous billboard and this time parked it outside CNN’s Manhattan office.

After considering all other options, CNN finally chose to do the right thing. Chris Cuomo is no longer employed by the network.
