News broke Wednesday afternoon that CBS terminated Fager's contract early because he had "violated company policy".
Mr Fager himself denies harassment, and told reporters he had been fired over a "harsh" text he sent to a colleague. He acknowledged that his language in the text was "harsh", but said that "although journalists received harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS didn't like it".
Fager said he would not have thought that one note would have resulted in a dismissal after 36 years at the network, "but it did".
A day later, the network released the text message and provided some context.

"If you repeat these false accusations without any of your own reporting to back them up you will be held responsible for harming me", Fager responded. "There are people who lost their jobs trying to harm me, and if you pass on these damaging claims without your own reporting to back them up, that will become a serious problem, '" Duncan said.
Back in August, the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow had reported that Fager had touched women inappropriately at company functions, not to mention allowed an abusive senior producer to run amok - reporting that this blog expanded.
The directors then began planning his exit - but reportedly still planned on giving him a $90 million exit package, until the New Yorker published a second story Sunday with six more accusers who also slammed the possibility of a golden parachute.
But Fager has said that women have made significant advances at the broadcast, to the point where a majority its producers and associate producers are now women.
CBS launched an investigation into Fager over the summer.
Fager's termination comes after former CBS CEO Les Moonves resigned on Sunday.
