Fox Nation, Fox News Media’s subscription-based streaming service, will debut a new special, The Collapse of Cuomo, that focuses on the scandals swirling around Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), and they’re promoting it with an ad running on his brother Chris Cuomo’s CNN program, Mediaite can exclusively report.
The 30-second ad will be running on Cuomo Prime Time, as well as other CNN programs like New Day and The Situation Room, targeting key markets in New York City and Washington, DC. The ad contains a clip from a now-infamous May 2020 interview that Chris Cuomo conducted with his gubernatorial brother in which the CNN host teased him with a giant cotton swab prop.
The ad scrolls through several articles highlighting the various sexual harassment and assault accusations that have piled up over the last few months, as well as the nursing home deaths blamed on Gov. Cuomo’s Covid-19 policies.
“FROM DYNASTY TO DISGRACE” read the captions on the screen, followed by clips of Gov. Cuomo insisting that he will not resign. The Fox Nation special debuts on May 3.
It is not entirely clear why CNN would agree to run an ad on their channel attacking the brother of one of their best-known personalities — much less during his own program — but it does give some credence to Chris Cuomo’s vow from back in March that while he felt it was inappropriate for him to cover the governor’s scandals, CNN would continue to do so.
