longtime journalist and television host, Charlie Rose, was suspended indefinitely by CBS and PBS after allegations surfaced of sexual harassment. Both networks have upped the ante - and fired him. Bloomberg, which has also aired his program, will no longer run the nightly talk show.
As we told you before, "The Washington Post" originally broke the story about the alleged harassment, which included interviews with eight women who described Rose's "unwanted sexual advances."
CBS circulated an internal memo yesterday saying their decision to part ways with Rose "followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior."
Less than an hour later, PBS issued a statement of their own: "In light of yesterday's revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and canceled distribution of his programs."
Rose, who is 75, "deeply apologized" for what he admitted was "inappropriate behavior" in a statement - though he noted he had thought he was "pursuing shared feelings."
