  • Colbert Slams Former CBS Colleague Charlie Rose: 'It's a Harrowing and Terrible Abuse of Power'

Rose was sacked by CBS and PBS, who announced they were cutting ties with the longtime newsman after numerous women have come forward with allegations that he sexually harassed them.

A former intern says Charlie Rose made her watch an explicit sex scene from a movie when she dropped mail off at his home. It's still very painful, it's still very hurtful. "I can't stop thinking about that and the pain they're going through". She also expressed empathy for Rose, saying she thinks he is "troubled" and that "we all have issues in life".

In an earlier statement, Rose did apologize for his "inappropriate behavior", and said he was "greatly embarassed", although adding "I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate". I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken."PBS fired Rose within hours of the Post article's publication, and CBS suspended Rose in order to conduct its own investigation".

"CBS News has reported on extraordinary revelations at other media companies this year and last".

"This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women", she said. CBS News president David Rhodes cited "extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior" as he announced the firing.

Fellow co-host Nora O'Donnell also denounced Rose without equivocation. His presence is largely credited with much-improved ratings for the network during the morning show bloc.

The "CBS This Morning" anchor joined Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" Tuesday night, a day after eight women accused Rose of sexual harassment. "Charlie and I worked together, been friends, but when you think about the anguish of those women despite the friendship, you still have to report the news", King said. She went on to ask, "W$3 hat do you say when someone that you deeply care about has done something that is so awful? I'm still trying to wrap my brain around that".

"I've often heard that things used to be different".

Rose has had a revered 45-year in career in American journalism, which also included him reporting for current affairs stalwart 60 Minutes. One of the unnamed women in the Post report said that Rose had her work from his house while she was an intern on his PBS show. He's gettin' naked. Open robe! "Does it turn you on?' That kind of stuff", she recalled. Rose, 75, however, also questioned the accuracy of the allegations in the Washington Post.

Asked if she thinks the flood of sexual harassment allegations will ever end, King said women won't stay quiet anymore.
