CBS News cuts ties with Charlie Rose after sexual misconduct allegations

CBS suspends Charlie Rose; PBS halts his show after allegations

We gotta give credit where credit is due - Megyn Kelly continues to be a consistent voice in the #MeToo movement with her unwavering call to attention to the sexual harassment allegations that are happening in droves right now.

Three of the women spoke on the record, revealing their identities, says the Post.

The Washington Post reported accounts by eight women Monday of behavior by Rose that included being nude around them, groping them and making lewd phone calls.

CBS News fired long-time anchor Charlie Rose on Tuesday following allegations of sexual misconduct levied against him spanning decades of his journalism career.

CBS, on which Rose has co-anchored CBS This Morning since 2012, has suspended the journalist pending an investigation.

PBS has ended its partnership with Charlie Rose, host of its long-running interview show, after several women accused him of sexual misconduct. Rose, 75, is also a co-host of CBS This Morning and a contributing correspondent for 60 Minutes.

16 children find 'forever families' in Snohomish County after official adoption
All of the children were adopted out of Ramsey County, but the families came from all over the state. But for 16 children in Snohomish County, they just could not wait to get in front of a judge.

"There is no excuse for this alleged behavior", an emotional Norah O'Donnell said in the opening segment of the show. Five described Rose putting his hand on their legs, sometimes their upper thigh, in what they perceived as a test to gauge their reactions.

"It takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward", O'Donnell said.

One of the women, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, alleged that Rose would walk naked around her while she worked as his personal assistant, and claimed he would sometimes describes fantasies about her. Other staffers were purportedly aware of Rose's behavior.

In a statement, Rose apologised and said he was "greatly embarrassed".

Rose said that he has behaved insensitively at times "and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. 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.

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". 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. 'I never witnessed any unprofessional incidents'. I've held him in such high regard.
