Disgraced former CNN “star” anchor Chris Cuomo has now lost his book deal as the fallout over his egregious behavior continues.
Cuomo, brother of New York’s former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), was suspended then quickly fired after his role in helping the disgraced ex-governor emerged.
CNN boss Jeff Zucker was reportedly outraged when new documents proved Cuomo had lied to the network and moved to immediately terminate him.
Cuomo was then forced out of his SiriusXM radio show according to multiple reports.
And now he has lost his book deal. If you recall, disgraced Andrew Cuomo made millions on a book deal where he told a bunch of lies about his ‘excellent’ handling of the virus.
That illusion was shattered by reality when Cuomo couldn’t hide the true numbers of nursing home deaths anymore and the Feds stepped in to have a look.
Chris Cuomo had a book deal with a division of HarperCollins Publisher.
They confirmed today they have canceled plans to publish the book by Cuomo that was tentatively titled “Deep Denial,”
HarperCollins’ Custom House imprint was planning to publish the book in fall 2022.
“We do not intend to publish the book,” said Kelly Rudolph, a spokeswoman for Custom House.
From Business Insider:
A source from Custom House, the subset of HarperCollins set to publish the book, also told the New York Post that the book was being pulled.
“DEEP DENIAL,” which was set to be published next year, was “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,” according to a description of the book on Google Books.
Wait, Chris Cuomo’s book was originally called Deep Denial? Too perfect. pic.twitter.com/amCByBBmnO
