CBS News Fires Charlie Rose Following Sexual Harassment Allegations

Eight women are accusing veteran journalist and television host Charlie Rose of sexual misconduct, The Washington Post reported Monday.

PBS quickly suspended distribution of the Charlie Rose programme following the allegations, which they described as "deeply disturbing".

David Rhodes, president of CBS News, tweeted a statement saying Rose's "termination" is effective immediately. "This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behaviour said to have revolved around his PBS programme".

Following the Post report, Business Insider published accounts from three additional unnamed women (they could not say if they were the same women cited by the Post).

He said: 'In my 45 years of journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. She said, "This has to end".

The women, who were employees or aspired to work for Rose at the "Charlie Rose Show" from the late 1990s to as recently as 2011, told the newspaper he made unwanted sexual advances toward them, walked in the nude around them and groped their breasts, buttocks and genital areas.

"It would usually entail some version of him also touching me", said Godfrey-Ryan. The show is produced by Rose's own company and syndicated by PBS.

McMaster called Trump an "idiot", with intelligence of a "kindergartner"
Safra Catz , who served on Trump's transition team, and whose name has been floated for several high-profile administration jobs. McMaster joined the Trump administration in February following the ouster of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

Rose had co-hosted "CBS This Morning" since 2012 and appeared on PBS since 1991.

She then said that she wanted to share a story involving her and Rose that wasn't about harassment, but of the "underlying dynamic between men and women that contributes to this culture in which inappropriate conduct goes unaddressed". "I am greatly embarrassed", he said.

King has not yet spoken to Rose about the allegations but said, "I intend to speak to him certainly later today". "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that", Rose told the Post.

"There is no excuse for this alleged behavior", an emotional Norah O'Donnell said in the opening segment of the show.

Rose took a leave of absence from CBS This Morning in February to undergo heart surgery to replace an artificial aortic valve. "It is crushing. I deeply regret not helping them".

Rose is accused of groping several of the women, walking naked in front of one, and telling another he imagined her swimming naked. "I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken", the former 60 Minutes host continued.
