Charlie Rose fired over sex harassment claims

Charlie Rose fired over sex harassment claims

CBS suspended Rose shortly after The Washington Post published a 5,000-word story about alleged harassment, based on interviews with eight women who described "unwanted sexual advances".

Rose, who hosts Charlie Rose on PBS in addition to This Morning, has been suspended by both CBS and PBS in the wake of the allegations.

During today's broadcast of Megyn Kelly Today, Kelly told the audience that she's "known Charlie for years" and "considered him a friend", thus making this "not a pleasant story" for her.

Rose did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap. "After reading that article in The Post it was deeply disturbing, troubling, and painful ... that said, I think we have to make this matter for women".

"Charlie does not get a pass here", King said.

"I am not okay", his co-host Gayle King stated before adding that she hasn't been sleeping since the Washington Post reported eight women accused Rose of harassing them sexually.

Volin also noted that it is the "first time I've seen Lynch stand for the Mexican anthem", according to a November 19 tweet. The Monday missive marked Trump's second tweet criticizing black athletes in as many days.

CBS This Morning covered the allegations in unsparing detail, including details about how Rose gropes women's breast and reach down their trousers.

"This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women", O'Donnell said.

Rose had no immediate reaction to his firing. The show launched on New York PBS station WNET and then went national in 1994.

"In light of yesterday's revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs", PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger said in a statement. He admitted behaving insensitively, but wrote that he did not "believe that all of these allegations are accurate".

She said that while the story described a Rose she did not know, "I'm also clearly on the side of the women who have been very hurt and damaged by this". Kelly confirmed this in Settle for More, which detailed his alleged inappropriate behavior.

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. Two said that while they were working for Rose at his residences or were traveling with him on business, he emerged from the shower and walked naked in front of them. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too". "I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken", Rose said in a statement to the Post.
