CNN officially fires Cuomo's brother

The Cable News Network (CNN) officially dismissed its journalist Chris Cuomo amid the allegations on the way he reported on the sexual harassment claims made against his brother, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

"We retained a respected law firm to conduct the review, and have terminated him, effective immediately. While in the process of that review, additional information has come to light. Despite the termination, we will investigate as appropriate," CNN said in a written statement.

The network previously suspended the anchor after new evidence on the case showed he had used his influence to attain information that would help Andrew Cuomo in the aforementioned lawsuit.
