Charlie Rose was fired from CBS News and PBS following a shocking and revealing article written by the The Washington Post about alleged sexual harassment. The allegations come from interviews conducted by the post with at least eight women.
All of the women described “unwanted sexual advances.”
In a statement, Rose said that he “deeply apologized” for what he admitted was “inappropriate behavior.”
Following the Post’s article, even more women came out with additional allegations against Charlie Rose. By Tuesday morning, the avalanche of sexual misconduct accusations got so bad that even liberal CBS executives were forced to acknowledge that it was impossible to sweep this one under the rug.
The result: bye bye, Charlie Rose.
Following CBS, the Public Broadcast Service (PBS) released its own statement regarding Rose’s firing from their airwaves.
“In light of yesterday’s revelations,” the statement read, “PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and cancelled distribution of his programs. PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect.”
Tuesday morning’s CBS show did not shy away from the controversy.
Co-hosts Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King said that Charlie would not get a “pass” from them or “anyone in this room.” King said “We are all deeply affected. We are all rocked by this.”
Rose is just the latest to fall in what has been an unprecedented wave of sexual assault and harassment revelations which have come out into the open since Harvey Weinstein’s now infamous sexual misdeeds.
Since then, Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has also been exposed as an alleged child molester, and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is facing allegations from two women of sexual groping, one of which has photo evidence.
It what appears to be an endless cascade of sexual wantonness, Americans are faced with an essential question: who among us should be idolized?
So far, we can clearly see that politicians are rarely deserving of the reverence they prostrate through the streets of DC. In fact, the House is currently under fire for having a secret “hush money” fund for victims of sexual abuse at the hands of congressmen. Mind you, that’s taxpayer money being used to settle accounts of sexual misconduct.
Of course, House Minority Leader and former Speaker Nancy Pelosi denies any knowledge of the fund.
We can also clearly see that the entire Hollywood structure is morally bankrupt. This probably has something to do with the fact that the American Left has used Hollywood to sell its liberal sex philosophies for generations (and we’re surprised when men despicably cross the line).
Finally, we have sports stars like Jameis Winston and countless others who have been accused of sexual assault, rape, theft and many other crimes. In addition, they continue to kneel during the National Anthem.
Why is it that the worst in our society reap all of the benefits of fame, power and fortune while men like Mike Pence get made fun of for having strict rules when it comes to personal morality?
