Cuomo News Network (CNN nickname)

The Cable News Network (now called CNN) began in 1980 as the first all-news 24-hour television network. CNN has been called the “Cuomo News Network” by many because it hired Chris Cuomo in 2013, and because of a perceived favorable reporting of his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“CNN has become the Cuomo News Network. They are really working him” was posted on Twitter by Daniel Lopez on February 12, 2013. “Drudge Report - CNN = CUOMO NEWS NETWORK?: CNN = CUOMO NEWS NETWORK?(Top headline, 1st story, link)” was posted on Twitter by Conservative News on February 15, 2013.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo himself used the term to mock his brother. “A satirical video from Democratic Gov. Andrew mocks state Republicans and imagines a ‘Cuomo News Network’ that he says is better than the real CNN” was printed by the Associated Press on June 11, 2014. “He teased Chris Cuomo, saying he is starting his own CNN: Cuomo News Network” was printed in the Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, NY) on May 26, 2018. CNN’s Chris Cuomo often interviewed his brother during the 2020-21 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and “Cuomo News Network” went viral.

“Cuomo Nepotism Network” is a similar CNN nickname.

CNN has also been nicknamed the “Chicken Noodle News” (cited in print since 1981), the “Communist News Network” (cited in print since 1991), the “Clinton News Network” (cited in print since 1992), “Certainly Not News” (cited in print since 1993), the “Cabal News Network” (cited in print since 1996), the “CIA News Network” (cited in print since 1997), the “Clown News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Criminal News Network” (cited in print since 1998), the “Corporate News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Counterfeit News Network” (cited in print since 1999), the “Cartoon News Network” (cited in print since 2000), “Crescent News Network” (cited in print since 2002), “Crap Not News” (cited in print since 2007), “Criminally Negligent News” (cited in print since 2009), the “Collapsing News Network,” the “American Pravda” (cited in print since 2012), the “Collusion News Network” (cited in print since 2017) and the “Cuomo Nepotism Network” (cited in print since 2017).

Cuomo Satire Reinvents CNN As ‘Cuomo News Network’
Wednesday, June 11, 2014 at 10:32 pm | י"ג סיון תשע"ד
ALBANY (AP) -
A satirical video from Democratic Gov. Andrew mocks state Republicans and imagines a “Cuomo News Network” that he says is better than the real CNN.

The 8-minute video titled “The Empire State Governor Strikes Back” was Cuomo’s contribution to Tuesday night’s Legislative Correspondents Association show in Albany.

Newspapers.com
26 May 2018, Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, NY), “Molinaro pans Gov. Cuomo’s joke about Chris Cuomo” by Joseph Spector, pg. 6A, cols. 1-2:
ALBANY—Gov. Andrew Cuomo has a running gag about his brother, CNN star Chris Cuomo, in which he chides his younger sibling time and again on the air and in speeches.
(...)
He teased Chris Cuomo, saying he is starting his own CNN: Cuomo News Network. And the older brother held up a shirt that said “The Real Cuomo.”

NEW: Chris Cuomo took part in strategy calls advising his brother, the New York governor, on how to respond to sexual harassment allegations. CNN agrees it was “inappropriate” but says the anchor will not be disciplined.
