Chris Cuomo’s CNN show has its best month against tough foes
NEW YORK (AP) — When CNN gave Chris Cuomo its 9 p.m. ET time slot last June, there was reason to fear it could be a television suicide mission.
After all, that hour is where the big dogs roam. Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow are the top two personalities in cable television. They still are, but Cuomo's "Prime Time" quickly established itself as CNN's most-watched program and, with 1.64 million viewers in January, is having its best month, the Nielsen company said.

Chris Cuomo believes there’s room in the middle
NEW YORK (AP) — Chris Cuomo envisions his new CNN prime-time show as a haven for independent thinkers who want their preconceptions tested. His challenge is finding enough people who want that on a cable news network.

Welcome to the partisan fury, Michelle Wolf

Steve Bannon looks like ‘disheveled drunk’ who hurts GOP, Rep. Peter King says
Swift reaction to Democrat Doug Jones' victory over embattled Republican Roy Moore in the special Senate election in Alabama on Tuesday night was easy to find.
But Rep. Peter King's (R-N.Y.) don't-hold-back reaction over who to blame for Jones' win was among the most damning.
In an interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN's "A New Day" Wednesday morning, King called out Steve Bannon, the former White House adviser and far-right advocate who rallied on behalf of Moore.

"Why would I be in war with a guy ... the most powerful man in the world?" Ball said Monday night when asked about his back-and-forth with the President by CNN's Chris Cuomo.

Maxine Waters: ‘Take Trump out’ remark was about impeachment

NEW YORK (AP) — CNN's Chris Cuomo is hearkening back to his newsmagazine days with a series for the sister network HLN that initially touches on hot-button issues like the opioid crisis, illegal immigration and the sex trade.
The documentary series, "Inside with Chris Cuomo," debuts Friday at 9 p.m. and doesn't affect his day job as co-host of CNN's "New Day" morning show.
As Puerto Rico continues to struggle to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria, at least one Pennsylvania congressman thinks reports of American citizens struggling and dying on the island is “fake news.”
The horror, the horror.
The English language, expansive as it is, lacks sufficient vocabulary for the near-ceaseless popping sound of a weapon made automatic pounding bullets into terrified people as they run away from and toward — the unknown.
How do you express the inconceivable, the imponderable? You try to put yourself there. What would you have done? Run, but to where? Seek cover, but under what? Help others, but how? Survival was all anyone could hope for. Then what?
The CNN couple that no longer tweets together
NEW YORK (AP) — Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo are the CNN couple that no longer tweets together.
They share a desk each morning as anchors of CNN's "New Day," but have vastly different philosophies on social media.
Camerota publicly broke with Twitter last week, saying the anger she sees there "grosses her out." Cuomo dives in all the time, relishing combat with everyone from anonymous trolls to the president of the United States. He's tweeted more than 17,000 times.

After U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., revealed that Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch described President Donald J. Trump’s attacks on the judiciary as “disheartening” and “demoralizing,” the Commander-in-Tweets fired back.
Rep. Elijah Cummings said President Donald Trump's plans to investigate the baseless claims of widespread voter fraud are "nonsense."
"We spent all that time on nonsense when at the same time there are people who cannot even vote in the United States of America. We're better than that," the Maryland Democrat told CNN's Chris Cuomo Friday on "New Day."
Reflecting on the legacy of President Barack Obama, Rep. Elijah Cummings spoke Tuesday of his pride in what America's first black president has accomplished.
"He has elevated African-American people so much," Cummings told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day." "And Michelle Obama, as they say, put the O in Obama."
"I can not tell you how proud I am of them," the Maryland Democrat added.
Cummings said Obama's election gave some of his Baltimore neighbors hope that they previously lacked.
