The suspension was also acknowledged Monday on CBS Evening News, where interim anchor Anthony Mason said "the wave of sexual abuse allegations we've been reporting from Hollywood to Washington have now touched CBS News".
The accusers include employees and aspiring employees of Charlie Rose, the bare-bones, black-backgrounded, hour-long PBS interview program hearkening back to James Day's Conversations from public television's early years.
"A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose's employment with CBS News, effective immediately. This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program", Rhodes wrote in a memo to CBS News colleagues.
In a statement, Rose said, "I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior".
"There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post", the newspaper points out.
Rose, King said, "doesn't get a pass, because I can't stop thinking about the anguish of these women. that and the pain that they're going through". The victims told the publication that Rose, 75, had made unwanted sexual advances toward them including instances of groping, lewd phone calls and walking around naked in front of them.
CBS said it wasn't aware of any complaints about Rose's behaviour at its own organization.
Rose had no immediate reaction to his firing.
Three women went on the record in the Post's story.
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. "Let me be very clear: There is no excuse for this alleged behaviour".Читайте также: Signals were false hope for Argentine Sub
Mr Rose has apologised but said not all the allegations were accurate.
She said it has been hard for her to balance her friendship with the man against the allegations against him.
In a statement, PBS said that the service "expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect".
"It takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward and I think that they should continue to do so", Norah said on the show this morning. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too". Rose is also contributor to CBS acclaimed Sunday evening newsmagazine 60 Minutes. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
