Investigators have spoken with more than 250 people in a probe to find out how a culture of sexual harassment was allowed to thrive at CBS—but some women have told The New York Times they don’t want to talk to the investigation because they don't trust the company. “I don’t really want to talk to anybody who has any affiliation with CBS,” said Sophie Gayter, who has accused ousted anchor Charlie Rose of groping her. “I’ve been keeping my mouth shut, because I just don’t trust anything from that organization whatsoever.” Others have chosen not to talk to the probe because of non-disclosure agreements they signed with the company—they feel they haven’t received sufficient assurance from CBS that they won’t be sued for talking. The agreements reportedly included clauses that “prohibited them from disparaging certain high-ranking male employees.” Rose lost his job amid sexual harassment allegations—as did chief executive Leslie Moonves and executive producer Jeff Fager.
