Charlie Rose Accused of Sexual Harassment by Eight Women

Posted November 22, 2017

Another woman, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, claimed that Rose frequently berated her on the job, only to apologize for his actions while touching her in an inappropriate manner, such as rubbing her thigh or touching the side of one of her breasts.

Eight women came forward in the Post report claiming Rose sexually harassed them.

PBS announced Tuesday that it has dropped The Charlie Rose Show, a decision following reports of the longtime talk show host's harassment of women. One said he groped her buttocks at a staff party. I am greatly embarrassed.

"Some critics might say, well why were they in position, you know, to see him naked?"

American public broadcaster PBS, where the veteran newsman also anchored a nightly interview show, said it was shocked by the "deeply disturbing allegations".

He said: 'In my 45 years of journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. O'Donnell also said that women can not achieve equality in the workplace until men take responsibility for their behaviour.

In addition to co-hosting "CBS This Morning" with Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell, Rose also conducts interviews for "60 Minutes". There is no excuse for this alleged behavior. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that", Rose told the Post.

"These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously", CBS News said.

"CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last", Rhodes's statement said. "We are deeply disturbed to learn of these allegations and are immediately suspending the show from airing on Bloomberg TV", Bloomberg said in a statement.

Rose had previously described sexual harassment as a "terrible thing" that needed more exposure - but now faces a string of allegations himself.

"Charlie does not get a pass here", King said. "I failed. It is crushing".

"I think that we have to make this matter to woman - the woman that have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they are afraid, I'm hoping that now they will take the step to speak up too and that this becomes a moment of truth", she continued.

"I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realise I was mistaken", he added, saying he had "come to a profound new respect for women and their lives".
