CBS News fires Charlie Rose

CBS suspends Charlie Rose; PBS halts his show after allegations

CBS fired Charlie Rose and PBS dropped his long-running interview show on Tuesday, after an explosive report Monday in the Washington Post detailed years of alleged sexual misconduct against dozens of women.

PBS' announcement that it was terminating its relationship with the host came an hour after CBS News announced it was terminating Rose, who hosted "CBS This Morning" and contributed to "60 Minutes".

"CBS This Morning" co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell talked about the allegations against Rose during Tuesday's broadcast, admitting it was a hard morning for them but applauded the women who came forward.

CBS News President David Rhodes said there is nothing more important than assuring a safe, professional workplace.

Several women have accused Rose of touching them on the breasts, buttocks or thigh, emerging naked from a shower when they were working at his residence and, in one case, calling a 21-year-old staffer to tell his fantasies of seeing her swim in the nude.

The suspension was also acknowledged Monday on CBS Evening News, where interim anchor Anthony Mason said "the wave of sexual abuse allegations we've been reporting from Hollywood to Washington have now touched CBS News".

Following The Post's report, PBS and Bloomberg said they would halt distribution of Rose's namesake interview program, which is produced by Charlie Rose Inc., an independent television production company.

He added, however that he did not believe all of the allegations were accurate.

"As tough as this story is, it's important that we cover it", Golodryga said.

In a statement posted to Twitter, the veteran host said: "I deeply apologise for my inappropriate behavior. That said, Charlie doesn't get a pass".

King applauded those who had the courage to speak up against Rose, reiterating that there is no excuse for behavior of that nature. I'm really grappling with that. 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.

Co-host Norah O'Donnell says it's a time of reckoning for women.

In a statement to The Post, Vega said she should have done more to protect the young women on the show. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that", Rose told the Post.
