How CNN's Chris Cuomo Became America's Toughest New Anchor
In 2013, when Chris Cuomo agreed to make the jump to CNN from his longtime post at ABC News, the anchor made one thing clear to his new employer: "I'm confrontational," Cuomo remembers telling Jeff Zucker, the president of the network. "I will engage. That's what I do." And he's held fast to his promise.

He's brash, brusque and completely disinterested in partisan spin – which is why he's perhaps best known for his frequent verbal sparring matches with some of Trump's most vigilant lackeys, like Kellyanne Conway.
