Charlie Rose has been suspended from PBS and CBS due to tonight’s explosive report about his alleged misconduct towards eight women.
Washington Post came out with a major story tonight, making Rose the latest public figure to come under scrutiny for gross and inappropriate sexual behavior. Rose is one of the main hosts on CBS Morning News, though the company has announced that they’re taking him off the air for the time being.
CBS News statement: Charlie Rose is suspended immediately while we look into this matter. These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously.
