Esteemed and respected journalist Charlie Rose has been found out as a degenerate sexual harasser or women. From the Washington Post:
Eight women have told The Washington Post that longtime television host Charlie Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward them, including lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas.
PBS and CBS responded to the article by firing the 75-year-old journalist.
I just don’t get it. I don’t know what I find more remarkable, that men like Rose have the desire to victimize subordinate women or that they assume they will get away with it. How many are more men like Rose are out there?
There are undoubtedly lots of other men in positions of power making unwanted sexual advances on women.
How can two news organizations not know that someone in their midst was a sexual predator? Both PBS and CBS should be ashamed. How am I supposed to respect 60 Minutes when one of their own presenters was a sexual predator who preyed upon underlings and they didn’t know about it?
If you cannot trust Charlie Rose, and you can’t, you are you supposed to trust?
