CBS Fires Charlie Rose for 'Extremely Disturbing and Intolerable' Behavior

Responses to Rose's alleged behavior came fast from CBS, PBS, and Bloomberg. 'This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behaviour said to have revolved around his PBS program'.

But Rose was caught up on one aspect: Kelly's accusations against the late Roger Ailes.

The list of prominent men accused of sexual harassment is growing.

Rose, for the most part, did not deny the accusations against him and issued a lengthy apology. "That said, Charlie doesn't get a pass". But the conversation between the two did not go as planned: Rather than discussing "the full scope" of the book and her story, Kelly explained, Rose was fixated on one particular topic. "After reading that article in the Post, it was deeply disturbing, troubling and painful for me to read". "Let be very clear".

King applauded those who had the courage to speak up against Rose, reiterating that there is no excuse for behavior of that nature. "It is systematic and pervasive and I've been doing a lot of listening and I'm going to continue to do that". This I know is true.

Rose's downfall hits CBS hard. The accusers, who ranged in age from 21 to 37 at the time of the alleged encounters, were not employed by CBS or PBS.

Rose was also accused of exposing himself and of making lewd phone conversation, in which he would describe his sexual fantasies (via The Hollywood Reporter). Three women spoke to the newspaper on the record, while the other five requested their identities remain anonymous "out of fear of Rose's stature in the industry", according to the report.

Young is survived by his siblings as well as wife, O'Linda, his two children, Cara and Ross, and his three grandchildren. Malcolm Young , co-founder and rhythm guitarist of Australian rock band AC/DC , has passed away at 64.


"There are striking commonalities in the accounts of the women, each of whom described their interactions with Rose in multiple interviews with The Post", the newspaper points out.

"Everything I experienced with journalism there made me not want to stay", said Godfrey-Ryan.

Rose is the second major media news figure to be suspended from work Monday in the face of allegations of sexual improprieties.

"I've often heard that things used to be different", the news division president said. "I failed. It is crushing".

Rose said in a statement that he "deeply apologized" for what he admitted was "inappropriate behavior".

In a statement, Rose apologised and said he was "greatly embarrassed". "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that", Rose told the Post.
