THE RECKONING

Norah O’Donnell on Charlie Rose: There Is No Excuse

Norah O’Donnell spoke frankly Tuesday morning about her CBS This Morning co-host Charlie Rose, who is facing several allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct following a bombshell report in The Washington Post. “This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women,” said O’Donnell. “Let me be very clear. There is no excuse for this alleged behavior. It is systematic and pervasive and I’ve been doing a lot of listening.” She added, “Women cannot achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning.”
