'CBS This Morning' to air for 1st time after Rose suspension

Rose released a statement to the Post apologizing for the behavior, saying "It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior".

Of the two dozen or so Rose employees interviewed for the story, the Post says more than half either witnessed outright harassment or behavior that made them uncomfortable.

Megan Creydt, who worked on Rose's PBS show in 2005 and 2006, was the third woman to go on the record.

The network initially suspended Rose on Monday after The Washington Post reported that eight women accused Rose of various misconduct, but CBS News President David Rhodes announced Tuesday that the "CBS This Morning" co-host has been terminated. She says she began crying after another attempt. I am greatly embarrassed.

"I haven't spoken to him", King said, turning to O'Donnell and asking, "Have you spoken to him?" Rose's bathroom behavior, which allegedly involved summoning underlings to him as he bathed, became so well-known by the women that they gave it a nickname: "the shower trick".

"It takes a lot of courage for these women to come forward and I think that they should continue to do so", Norah said on the show this morning. Women can not achieve equality in the workplace or in society until there is a reckoning and a taking of responsibility. There is no excuse for this alleged behavior.


Mr Rose has apologised but said not all the allegations were accurate. "I am so proud to work at CBS News". "PBS does not fund this nightly program or supervise its production, but we expect our producers to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect", a spokesperson said.

"Charlie does not get a pass here", King said.

Rose, who hosts Charlie Rose on PBS in addition to This Morning, has been suspended by both CBS and PBS in the wake of the allegations.

PBS' announcement that it was terminating its relationship with the host came an hour after CBS News announced it was terminating Rose, who hosted "CBS This Morning" and contributed to "60 Minutes".

She added: "I am deeply rocked by this". I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realise I was mistaken. "After reading that article in The Post it was deeply disturbing, troubling, and painful ... that said, I think we have to make this matter for women".
