    On Saturday Cuomo said he was ‘disappointed’ by CNN’s actions, but on Sunday his tone had switched to anger.

    Cuomo, through a spokesman, said that CNN’s president Jeff Zucker was fully aware of his help to his brother, and denied keeping Zucker in the dark.

    Cuomo also said that he had people who could corroborate his assertion that Zucker knew all along what his star anchor was doing.
