A HarperCollins division has dropped plans to publish a book by Chris Cuomo, who was fired by CNN over the weekend.
The book, Deep Denial, was set to be published next year. It follows Cuomo’s announcement on Monday that he was ending his daily SiriusXM radio show.
“Custom House no longer intends to publish the book,” a spokesperson for the publisher said.
A spokesperson for Cuomo declined comment. The book had a publication date of Oct. 15, 2022, and was described as “a provocative analysis of the harsh truths that the pandemic and Trump years have exposed about America—about our strength and our character—and a roadmap of the work needed to make our ideals match reality.”
Cuomo was terminated from the network on Saturday, after the network said it hired an outside law firm to look into new information released by New York Attorney General Letitia James that shed light on the extent to which he was involved in advising his brother, then New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, respond to sexual harassment allegations.
