Charlie Rose Accused of Sexual Harassment by Eight Women

Rose's firing at CBS came hours after his co-hosts on the morning news show sharply condemned him, expressing shock at allegations that he had sexually abused young women who worked with him on the interview show or sought employment from the late 1990s to 2011.

CBS News, PBS and Bloomberg have suspended the 75-year-old journalist in the wake of the allegations.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the veteran host said: "I deeply apologise for my inappropriate behavior".

One of the women, Reah Bravo, told the Post that when she worked for Rose he once positioned himself in front of a mirror without any clothes on so she could see him. That said, Charlie does not get a pass here ...

Rose is the second major media news figure to be suspended from work Monday in the face of allegations of sexual improprieties. "Let me be very clear: There is no excuse for this alleged behavior". "We are immediately suspending distribution of "Charlie Rose". The show launched on New York PBS station WNET and then went national in 1994.


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. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate", Rose said in a statement". "PBS does not fund this nightly program or supervise its production, but we expect our producers to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect", a spokesperson said.

One of the report's authors, Amy Brittain, tweeted after her story was published to say her inbox was "already flooded with women who have had similar, disturbing encounters with Charlie Rose".

"It takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward and I think that they should continue to do so", O'Donnell said, kicking off the emotional segment.

She also recounted cases when he would talk about how he fantasied about her swimming naked in the pool at his house as he watched, she told the newspaper. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too".

In addition to co-hosting "CBS This Morning" with Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, Rose also conducts interviews for "60 Minutes". I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken. Kelly confirmed this in Settle for More, which detailed his alleged inappropriate behavior.
