Longtime CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has had a fairly eventful last few weeks, and there seems to be no slowing down in sight.
The veteran newsman tested positive for coronavirus several days ago, and has been working from home ever since. At one point, Cuomo even described a hellish bout with the illness in which he lamented “phantasmagorical” experiences that he believed were not just fever dreams.
The ordeal seems to have awoken something deep inside of Cuomo, who lashed out at his employer during his satellite radio show.
“I don’t want to spend my time doing things that I don’t think are valuable enough to me personally,” Cuomo said. “I don’t value indulging irrationality, hyper-partisanship.”take our poll - story continues below
“I don’t like what I do professionally,” he added. “I don’t think it’s worth my time.”
Cuomo, who has been in self-quarantine since contracting the Chinese coronavirus, then lamented “talking to Democrats about things that I don’t really believe they mean” and “talking to Republicans about them parroting things they feel they have to say.”
Oh, there’s more…
“I’m basically being perceived as successful in a system that I don’t value,” he went on. “I’m seen as being good at being on TV and advocating for different positions… but I don’t know if I value those things, certainly not as much as I value being able to live my life on my own terms.”
As of this writing, CNN has yet to publicly address the situation.
