The longtime PBS reporter and trusted “CBS This Morning” co-host, Charlie Rose, has been suspended by both networks after he was accused of making unwanted sexual advances by at least eight women.
The 75-year-old veteran journalist issued a statement in which he admitted to some of the allegations brought about against him.
The accusers, a group of eight women who ranged in age from 21-37 years old during the time of the misconduct, realized they all shared commonalities with their personal stories.
While the women had varying accounts of their encounters with Rose, the accusers were employees or perspective employees of Rose, namely, of “The Charlie Rose Show.”
Multiple women explained that Rose would offer them a high-paying job with his television show, but revoke the offer when they rejected his advances.
The time of the incidents reportedly occurred from as recently as 2011, and reaches back to the 1990’s.
Rose’s involvement with CBS and PBS is further complicated by the taping of his show at the Bloomberg LP headquarters, which twists three major media outlets into the growing case against their on-air personality.
In the latest scandal to rock the television industry, all three of Rose’s media connections were quick to break, or at least suspend, ties to the accused.
The seasoned journalist was also quick in offering a statement which included an admission to some events as well as an apology.
