Charlie Rose Charlie Rose accused of sexual harassment by 8 women

Ranging in ages from 21 to 37, the women were employed at the "Charlie Rose" show on PBS from the 1990s to 2011.

The news about Rose came on the same day that Vox reported that New York Times White House reporter Glenn Thrush was suspended due to sexual harassment allegations. "I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate", Rose said, in part, in a statement to the Post.

Rose apologized for his "inappropriate behavior", while saying he does not believe "all of these allegations are accurate" in a statement made to the Washington Post.

Gofrey-Ryan also alleged that Rose would call her late at night or early in the morning to describe his fantasties of seeing her swim naked in his pool.

Allegations of inappropriate workplace behavior by Charlie Rose, broken Monday afternoon by the Washington Post, are startling and dismaying in and of themselves. "I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will, too". Three of the women spoke on the record and five spoke to the Post on condition of anonymity, "out of fear of Rose's stature in the industry, his power over their careers or what they described as his volatile temper".

Rose routinely landed the biggest names in global politics, entertainment and letters for his interview show Charlie Rose, which was broadcast on PBS and Bloomberg TV. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken. It is rebroadcast on Bloomberg's cable network, which also announced Monday it was suspending the show.

Rose released a statement apologizing for his actions.

"Six said they saw what they considered to be harassment, eight said they were uncomfortable with Rose's treatment of female employees, and 10 said they did not see or hear anything concerning".

Rose is the second major media news figure to be suspended from work in the face of allegations of sexual improprieties. "I think people are coming forward now".
