Things are getting worse and worse for CNN.
Their ratings are in the tank, their President just resigned and Americans’ distrust of the organization is hitting record highs.
Things might get even worse for CNN.
Former CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo is using legal action to go after CNN.
But Chris Cuomo’s planned legal attacks, according to people close to CNN, could add new details to this public narrative of why Zucker was ultimately forced out of the network he ran for the past nine years as one of the top executives in the broadcasting world.
But Chris Cuomo and his lawyers are planning to file an arbitration claim against CNN that they are telling people will shed both new light on the circumstances surrounding why he was fired, but also Zucker’s own journalistic ethics.
The timing of the arbitration claim – contract professionals must seek arbitration as opposed to courts to settle disputes – is unclear though it has been described as “soon,” these people say. Cuomo could also walk away and restart his career without the burden of a legal proceeding, but that seems unlikely for now.
Maybe most importantly, people with knowledge of the matter say, Chris Cuomo wants any deal to be predicated on either a statement from CNN that he did not violate internal rules, or a clause that he can publicly repair his reputation at some point.
“(Chris’s) lawyers might feel differently, but (he) won’t keep quiet for money,” said one person close to CNN.
