Charlie Rose Latest Public Figure Accused of Sexual Misconduct

Charlie Rose Suspended Misconduct

Charlie Rose is the latest public figure to face sexual misconduct allegations.

Rose has been accused by eight women of sexual harassment. He was subsequently suspended by both CBS News and PBS, pending the investigation.

The women, who all worked for Rose or tried to work for him, accused the veteran newsman of groping them, walking naked in front of them and telling one that he dreamed about her swimming nude.

Rose, 75, said in a statement that he was “deeply embarrassed” and apologized for his behavior.

Stories of sexual misconduct have been coming in a flood since The New York Times first reported on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s behavior in early October. Even on Monday, the Times suspended White House reporter Glenn Thrush while it looked into a story about him making drunken, unwanted advances on women. In the news business alone, NBC political reporter Mark Halperin and top National Public Radio news executive Michael Oreskes have lost their jobs.
