Veteran journalist Charlie Rose has been suspended from CBS News and had production of his PBS show halted after being accused of sexual harassment. For example, when Bravo worked a side job at Rose's house, she was told by a co-worker, "If Rose did anything "sketchy"... she should not hesitate to call the show's auto service to return home", the Post said.
"This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women", O'Donnell said.
- There was a proverbial empty chair on the set of "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday as Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King covered the suspension of their co-host and friend Charlie Rose.
"This I know is true, women cannot achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning or taking of responsibility", Norah continued. Rose's PBS interview show, which he has hosted since 1991, has been suspended. "But the thing about Charlie Rose is that he would commonly require his employees to come over to his private homes", Brittain said.
O'Donnell said there was no excuse for the behavior of which Rose is accused. "We are all deeply affected", King said firmly.
"I explained how he inappropriately spoke to me during those times", Godfrey-Ryan said. "Still, I wanted to share a story with you not about harassment, but of an underlying dynamic between men and women that contributes to this culture in which inappropriate conduct goes unaddressed". I'm really proud to work at CBS News.

They talked in detail about the sexual misconduct allegations against Rose, a television news icon who has co-hosted the morning show since 2012.
Despite Rose's journalistic contributions to CBS News, "There is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace", Rhodes said in the statement.
"It is systematic and pervasive".
She added: "I am deeply rocked by this". "I am greatly embarrassed", he said. A former associate producer for Rose's PBS show, Reah Bravo, told the Washington Post: "He was a sexual predator, and I was his victim".
Rose has apologized to any woman he has upset over the years though he questioned the accuracy of the accounts, saying that he thought he was "pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken".
