New allegations against Charlie Rose emerge

"This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program", he wrote. PBS has terminated its relationship with him. "PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect", PBS said. When she didn't respond, she said that Rose came out and stood over her, unclothed.

They complained that the unwanted advances included lewd phone calls, groping and walking naked in front of them. Three women were on the record and five were anonymous.

Viewers of CBS This Morning often tune in to see the show's signature "eye opener", a first-moment montage that recaps the newsy events that took place overnight.

Ms King said she was still processing the "horrible" accusations.

Their comments made it seem hard at best for CBS to bring Rose back to his seat after a lurid report published Monday by The Washington Post detailed allegations by eight women saying that Rose harassed them with in certain cases with lewd comments, unwanted advances and appearing before them in states of undress.

Just after, Rose's former co-host Gayle King sat down with Colbert and explained why she made a decision to keep her appearance. "I'm still trying to wrap my brain around that".

"This is not the man I know, but I'm also clearly on the side of the women who have been very hurt and very damaged by this", she said.

Rose told the Post that he was "deeply embarrassed" and apologized for his behaviour.

"None of us ever thought we'd be sitting at this table in particular telling this story, but here we are", said King, making a reference to the round-topped glass table that has become the center of the CBS morning program, which features Rose, King and O'Donnell not only reporting the news but talking over the ramifications of the stories they deliver. "Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues". I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that.

Rose issued an apology on Monday and said he had always felt he was "pursuing shared feelings", but now realises he was mistaken.

A source with knowledge of Rose's firing says CBS News didn't know the specifics of the initial allegations before Monday and that, "everything that needs to be investigated, we're investigating". Women are no longer afraid to speak up.

Rose was seen returning to his NY city apartment last night. She was in her early 20s at the time. "There's concern. I'll tell you what I am is raw".

"Charlie Rose" is produced by an independent television production company.

Here at CBS there are people to tell, but the accusers we spoke to didn't file complaints with HR.

Prior to that, the accusations about his alleged behavior were all by women who worked or sought work at "Charlie Rose" on PBS.

Looking back on her encounter, Gordon says she has some empathy for "troubled" souls like Rose, but thinks his ousting is for the best. Charlie is a 75-year-old in failing health who liked to go out at night [and] had a bad reputation. "It is crushing. I deeply regret not helping them".
