1) I don't think ill of him because he was trying to help his brother, I think ill of him because when it comes to his brother, he's willing to use double-standards and throw women under the bus. I don't think we should believe every woman who alleges assaults, but he said that he does and thus he should be held accountable by the same ideological mindset he created.
2) It's not just the one incident. CNN's ratings are crashing and although he was one of their bright lights at one point, his credibility covering various stories, especially Trump ones, were ridiculously incorrect. CNN went WOKE, and in turn, went broke. Now they're beginning to throw people under the bus who most negatively impact their payroll. CNN using this latest "insight," about Chris, is business, not politics.
If I were any of their highest paid television personalities/journalists, I'd be afraid. I'd be very afraid. 😁
