Charlie Rose Allegations Far More Extensive Than Previously Reported

Charlie Rose, former CBS This Morning co-anchor and PBS interviewer, has accused of sexual harassment by 27 more women, bringing the total number of women with allegations against Rose up to 35.

Of the almost three dozen women who have come forward with new allegations, 14 worked with Rose at CBS News and 13 worked with him at other networks.

The exposé also reveals how Rose's unsettling behaviour was reported to the network as early as 1986, and as recently as April 2017, just months before he was eventually given the boot.

Rose responded to the newspaper's article in a one-sentence statement: "Your story is unfair and inaccurate".

Rose was sacked from CBS News last November after eight women accused him of sexual harassment in another report by The Post. "Rose issued an apology". At PBS, his behavior became increasingly uncomfortable, Harris claims, alleging he demanded she come to his apartment one evening and then became drunk and asked her to sit at his desk to watching footage of his past interviews, according to the Washington Post.

However, The Washington Post reported that a manager was told of Rose's conduct at the earliest after an incident in 1986, where Rose badgered a news clerk about how often she had sex and if she enjoyed it.

Late today, CBS News told its employees it had hired a law firm to investigate the allegations in the Post report. A woman accused Rose of forcibly kissing her at a party.

"It was a sexual land mine everywhere you stepped", said former CBS assistant producer Beth Homan-Ross, who alleged that Rose frequently made sexual remarks about her breasts and buttocks and greeted her naked at his home during work visits.

NBC, which is now under fire for its mishandling of Joy Reid's false hacking claims and three allegations of misconduct against Tom Brokaw, had no comment when asked about an incident when Rose, then working for NBC, allegedly exposed his penis to a woman in 1976.

The lawsuit, which will likely be filed in the coming days, will sue several parties, including CBS, Rose and his company, Goldberg said. She was just 22 at the time but says he still harassed her with questions about her sex life. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate.

A 24-year-old woman who worked the night shift was noticed by Rose last year.

"Since we terminated Charlie Rose, we've worked to strengthen existing systems to ensure a safe environment where everyone can do their best work", the statement said.

"We continue to look for ways to improve our workplace and this period of reflection and action has been important to all of us", the network said. We offer employees discretion and fairness, and we take swift action when we learn of unacceptable behavior.

"That said, we can not corroborate or confirm numerous situations described", the statement continued.
