Charlie Rose fired over sex harassment claims

Posted November 22, 2017

Soon after The Washington Post's report was published, PBS released a statement, addressing the allegations made against Rose. The allegations include unwanted sexual advances, lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping.

On Tuesday, the Post reporters were interviewed by King and O'Donnell on CBS This Morning; one of them, Amy Brittain, said that soon after the Post's story was posted, her inbox was filling up with emails from additional women with "similar, disturbing encounters" with Rose.

PBS, which has aired the show since its 1991 debut, replaced Monday's scheduled edition of Charlie Rose with an episode of Antiques Roadshow.

Rhodes said it was important to maintaining credibility in reporting allegations involving media figures elsewhere that CBS manage basic standards of behaviour at its own shop.

'It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologise for my inappopriate behaviour. "I am greatly embarrassed", he said. A former associate producer for Rose's PBS show, Reah Bravo, told the Washington Post: "He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim". I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.

PBS announced Tuesday that it has dropped The Charlie Rose Show, a decision following reports of the longtime talk show host's harassment of women.

"Charlie Rose is suspended immediately while we look into this matter", the network said in a written statement. PBS, which distributes his interview program Charlie Rose, said it was pulling the show, which Rose produces through his company, Charlie Rose Inc.

Both King and O'Donnell applauded the courage the women must have had to take steps to speak up about what happened to them. Rose hosted "CBS This Morning" each weekday and was a contributor to "60 Minutes". PBS said it hasn't yet considered what will replace the show; the service is providing member stations reruns of programs like "This Old House" and "Finding Your Roots" to fill holes in their schedule this week. But the conversation between the two did not go as planned: Rather than discussing "the full scope" of the book and her story, Kelly explained, Rose was fixated on one particular topic.

"That said, Charlie does not get a pass here". On behalf of SUNY Oswego, I will correspond with the Trustees of the State University of NY to discuss a path forward in regard to the status of Mr.

Said King: "I really am reeling".

O'Donnell said there was no excuse for the behavior of which Rose is accused.
