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 Nepotism 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’s Chris Cuomo often interviewed his brother during the 2020-21 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and “Cuomo Nepotism Network” became popular.
“Cuomo Nepotism Network” was posted on Twitter by CanadianGuineaPig on July 10, 2017. “Does CNN stand for ‘Cuomo Nepotism Network’?” was posted on Twitter by Hunter Hustus on April 19, 2020. Fox New commentator Kayleigh McEnany used “Cuomo Nepotism Network” on May 21, 2021.
