CNN hasn’t done very well recently as far as public relations are concerned. On the heels of the network being forced to fire Chris Cuomo, the host of its top-rated primetime show, a CNN producer was arrested and charged with luring underage girls to his home for disturbing sexual acts.
But according to the Daily Mail, the situation took a shocking twist when it was revealed that Cuomo and the arrested producer have a long and friendly history together, complete with a weird photo from 2015 of the two performing a mock Papal blessing.

In addition, the two worked together on the set of CNN’s New Day prior to Cuomo landing his own primetime show. Griffin had earlier bragged about being “shoulder to shoulder” with Cuomo.
In a Twitter post last year, after it was revealed that Cuomo had contracted COVID-19, Griffing wrote a touching get-well message for his “boy.”
“Praying for my boy Chris Cuomo even if, purely technically at least, he isn’t my boy anymore. But as he said on tonight’s broadcast, please don’t worry for him. Watch him closely when he says, with a positive Corona diagnosis don’t forget, what HE’S worried about: his kids– and he nearly starts crying. I saw that time and time again,” Griffin wrote.
Griffin’s indictment revealed that he’s alleged to have lured underage girls to his Vermont-based ski lodge for “sexual training.” He apparently attempted to convince parents to train their daughters to be “sexually submissive.”
Among the many abuse allegations, one of them included a nine-year-old girl and her mother, who Griffin reportedly flew to his lodge after sending them $3,000 dollars. While at his lodge, documents indicate that “the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity.”
The 800-pound gorilla in the room at the moment focuses on Cuomo’s friendship with Griffin, and many are now raising questions as to whether Cuomo was aware that Griffin was a pedophile monster.
