The clandestine battle behind the scenes between CNN, former CNN boss Jeff Zucker, and former CNN host Chris Cuomo continued as two major developments dropped Tuesday night. The first was Zucker’s lover and fellow CNN executive Allison Gollust resigned from the company two weeks after Zucker was forced out. The second was a New York Times expose that revealed new details of how the three fell so far and new details of Cuomo’s alleged sexual assault of a colleague while at ABC News.
Gollust’s ouster was announced by WarnerMedia CEO Jason Kilar in a letter to the company that was shared by CNN hatchetman and media apologist Brian Stelter on Twitter.
“Earlier today, Allison Gollust resigned from CNN following the conclusion of the Company’s investigation into issues associated with Chris Cuomo and former Governor Andrew Cuomo,” Kilar wrote. “Performed by a third-party law firm and led by a former federal judge, the investigation was comprehensive and definitive.”
