Dozen More Women Accuse Charlie Rose of Sexual Harassment

Back in the spotlight Charlie Rose has been accused over sexually harassing an additional 27 women over a period of 30 years both at CBS and on the set of his PBS talk show

With 27 more women accusing former news anchor Charlie Rose of sexual misconduct, a report Thursday calls into question the claim by CBS News that his behaviour was a surprise before he was sacked last November.

For their latest story, The Post interviewed 107 current and former CBS News employees in addition to two dozen women who worked with Rose at other networks.

The exposé also reveals how Rose's unsettling behaviour was reported to the network as early as 1986, and as recently as April 2017, just months before he was eventually given the boot.

Rose's response to the new allegations was delivered in a one-sentence email to the Washington Post, with Rose writing, "Your story is unfair and inaccurate".

After months of investigating allegations of sexual misconduct by Rose - who has hosted shows on CBS News and PBS, including "60 Minutes" - The Washington Post on Thursday detailed the accounts of the additional women. "Rose issued an apology".

The most recent incident of alleged misconduct reported to CBS management came in early 2017, according to the Post's investigation.

Amazon to Expand Boston Technology Hub With 2000 New Jobs
Another major Canadian city, Toronto, is still in the running for Amazon's official second North American headquarters. The announcement details show that Amazon now employs some 1,000 researchers and engineers at its Vancouver facility.

Rose's fallout was brought on by eight women who came forward with claims that Rose had either sexually assaulted them by groping their bodies, or had displayed sexually inappropriate behavior.

In a statement, CBS News President David Rhodes said: "Since we terminated Charlie Rose, we've worked to strengthen existing systems to ensure a safe environment where everyone can do their best work". It told the paper it has changed its policies since the allegations against Rose became public.

One woman told The Post that while she was a research assistant at NBC News' Washington bureau, Rose exposed his penis to her and grabbed her breasts. Perr said that when she told her manager, they laughed and told her she didn't have to be alone with him anymore. "Some of the actions we have taken have been reported publicly, some have not".

When Annmarie Parr was working as a news clerk in 1986, Rose allegedly made "lewd, little comments" about her looks and asked her how often she had sex. Collins contends that Vega, who did not respond to a request for comment from the Post, shrugged off the episode. She was just 22 at the time but says he still harassed her with questions about her sex life. We offer employees discretion and fairness, and we take swift action when we learn of unacceptable behavior. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. That said, we can not corroborate or confirm numerous situations described.

Three of the women whose stories were documented by the Post ― former PBS employee Brooks Harris, CBS executive assistant Chelsea Wei and former PBS assistant Sydney McNeal ― are filing a lawsuit based on their allegations, their attorney Ken Goldberg confirmed to HuffPost. "We are not done with this process".
