Published May 03, 2018Late last year, Charlie Rose was fired from CBS News after a Washington Post piece alleged his sexual misconduct with multiple women. It felt like a swift move on the organization's part, but a new WaPo piece claims Rose has been sexually harassing female coworkers at CBS since the mid-1970s.
The latest exposé brings forth allegations from an alarming 27 more female colleagues, bringing the total number of accusers to a staggering 38.
The timeline for the allegations does not bode well for CBS. According to the Washington Post, concerns about Rose's behaviour were first brought up to management all the way back in 1986. The most recent complaint took place in April 2017.
The long, exhaustive list of allegations includes everything from inappropriate sexual talk to groping and Rose allegedly exposing himself to female colleagues.
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."
A lawyer representing three of the accusers plan to file a lawsuit against Rose soon. For more information, read the full Washington Post piece here.
