    The Facts

    • Former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has filed a $125M arbitration accusing the network of firing him without justification and damaging his reputation.

    • The large sum covers not just his remaining salary at the time he was fired, but also future earnings, according to the filing.

    The Spin

    Democratic narrative

    Cuomo crossed clear ethical lines in his entanglement with his brother. But what also got him fired – and was conveniently left out of the filing – were the two sexual harassment claims that surfaced against him. He must be held accountable.

    Republican narrative

    CNN is hypocritcal; the whole network is ethically compromised and Cuomo's filing proves it. By exposing the unpunished and immoral behavior of Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Jeffrey Toobin and the higher-ups at CNN, Cuomo confirms no one at the network has professional ethics.
