Charlie Rose Called Out
Broadcast journalism icon Charlie Rose is added to the growing list of national figures facing sexual harassment allegations.
Veteran broadcaster Charlie Rose has been suspended following allegations of sexual harassment. According to media reports, at least eight women are accusing the journalist of inappropriate behavior. The reported incidents happened between the late 1990’s and 2011, when the women ranged in age from 21 to 37. Rose is accused of groping, lewd telephone calls, and unwanted advances. A producer on ‘Charlie Rose’ admits she was told about at least two of the incidents, but, never did anything with the information. Rose is suspended from CBS, and PBS is halting distribution of his interview show. In a statement, he says he deeply apologizes and takes responsibility.
