CBS News Fires Charlie Rose Following Sexual Harassment Allegations

22 November 2017

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. "That's what I'm grappling with. Both my son and my daughter called me; Oprah called me and said, 'Are you OK?' I am not OK". "These are credible allegations of predatory sexual harassment that completely conflict with the core values of our institution and significantly degrade the achievements that were the basis for awarding him an honorary degree", Stanley said in a statement.

Instead of standing up for herself, Kelly admitted she just sent Rose a bottle of wine and a card. "I am so proud to work at CBS News. And I'm really struggling because how do you, what do you say when someone that you deeply care about has done something that is so awful", King said. "How do you wrap your brain around that? That said, Charlie doesn't get a pass".

Aged 21 at the time, she said she lost her job when Rose discovered she had spoken to a mutual friend about his behaviour.

Megyn Kelly's TODAY hour has increasingly focused on conversations around sexual misconduct, and on Tuesday morning, the new host opened her show by recounting an encounter with a public figure who's newly in the headlines on the topic: Charlie Rose.

This post was updated after PBS announced it was dropping the show.

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. 'This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behaviour said to have revolved around his PBS program'. "We are immediately suspending distribution of "Charlie Rose".

King said that while the Post's story did not represent a Rose she knew, "I'm also clearly on the side of the women who have been very hurt and damaged by this".

The Charlie Rose show airs on PBS.

In a report Monday, the Washington Post laid out allegations from eight women who worked for Rose over the years. "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.
