Charlie Rose fired by CBS after sexual harassment reports

CBS suspends Charlie Rose; PBS halts his show after allegations

"CBS This Morning" co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell talked about the allegations against Rose during Tuesday's broadcast, admitting it was a hard morning for them but applauded the women who came forward.

Veteran journalist Charlie Rose has apologized after eight women accused him of sexually harassing them, from walking around naked in front of them to groping their breasts and genitals.

Rose was promptly suspended by CBS and his PBS show was halted Monday after the allegations were reported in The Washington Post.

"I deeply apologise for my inappropriate behaviour", he said on Monday. CBS is also suspending Rose from his position as co-anchor of CBS This Morning. I am greatly embarrassed.

Following the Post report, Business Insider published accounts from three additional unnamed women (they could not say if they were the same women cited by the Post).

Four people were also killed over the weekend, while an opposition lawmaker was shot in the leg during scuffles with the police. Kenyatta won the elections with 7.48 million votes in 266 out of 291 constituencies where the election took place.

CBS News says the network terminated Rose's contract Tuesday.

Rose took a leave of absence from CBS This Morning in February to undergo heart surgery to replace an artificial aortic valve.

O'Donnell said there was no excuse for the behavior of which Rose is accused. She said, "This has to end".

Rose, King said, "doesn't get a pass, because I can't stop thinking about the anguish of these women. that and the pain that they're going through".

"Most of the women said Rose alternated between fury and flattery in his interactions with them".

The women claim that the inappropriate advances took place when they worked for or aspired to work for Rose on his longtime running PBS show "Charlie Rose" from the late 1990s until as recently as 2011. 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". "And I'm really struggling because how do you, what do you say when someone that you deeply care about has done something that is so awful", King said.

Shortly after CBS's announcement, PBS weighed in, announcing it was ending its relationship with Rose and canceling distribution of his show.

One of Rose's former assistants, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, said the presenter had called her repeatedly to describe his fantasies of her swimming naked in his pool while he watched from the bedroom.

For her part, Vega, in a statement to the Post, said she should have protected the young women. I deeply regret not helping them. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.

'I have learned a great deal as a result of these events and I hope others will too.
