27 Additional Women Say They Were Harassed by Charlie Rose

Nearly 30 more women have emerged to say they were sexually harassed by Charlie Rose, and three CBS News managers were warned about his conduct over a period of 30 years, according to a new Washington Post investigation. Twenty-seven women—14 CBS News employees and 13 who worked with him elsewhere—have said they were sexually harassed by the former This Morning host, in addition to the eight women who complained about his behavior in the original report, which led to his firing. The new allegations against Rose date back to 1976, when, according to a former research assistant, he exposed his penis and touched her breasts in the NBC News Washington bureau. Concerns about Rose’s behavior were flagged to managers at the network as early as 1986 and as recently as April 2017, according to multiple people cited in the report. Rose responded to the new allegations by saying in an email: “Your story is unfair and inaccurate.”
