Charlie Rose fired by CBS, PBS cancels interview show

Eight women who worked for Rose or tried to work from him have accused Rose of various misconduct, including groping them, walking naked in front of them and telling one that he dreamed about her swimming nude.

The president of CBS News said veteran anchor Charlie Rose had been fired from the CBS Corp. unit after allegations that he had harassed former female employees at his production company surfaced Monday in a news report. Let me be very clear.

"In light of yesterday's revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and canceled distribution of his programs". Bravo also recounted instances where Rose groped her in the back off a vehicle and got on top of her while they were on a private airplane.

"Charlie does not get a pass here". Rose is also contributor to CBS acclaimed Sunday evening newsmagazine 60 Minutes. "And I've been doing a lot of listening and I'm going to continue to do that", O'Donnell said. "The exchange felt to me like a cross-examine, focused on one issue, the book's sexual harassment allegations against [former Fox News head] Roger Ailes, allegations Ailes denied but which I know are true because I lived it", Kelly explained. The Post says that all of the women were between the ages of 21 and 37 at the time of their unwanted encounters; had offered "striking commonalities" in their accounts; and all had confided with friends, family and colleagues about the incidents at the time. Two said that while they were working for Rose at his residences or were traveling with him on business, he emerged from the shower and walked naked in front of them. "Oprah called me and said 'Are you OK?' I am not OK", King said.

King said, "This is not the man I know", describing a five-year friendship with Rose that began when they launched the morning show together in 2012. Godfrey Ryan says when she complained to Yvette Vega, the show's executive producer, she dismissed it as "Charlie being Charlie". I am greatly embarrassed.

PBS said it would cease to air the long-running and award-winning interview program "Charlie Rose" in the wake of claims of sexual harassment levied at the program's venerable host. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate". "I failed. It is crushing".

"I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too".
