Charlie Rose Sued by 3 CBS Staffers for Sexual Harassment

Posted May 06, 2018

With 27 more women accusing former news anchor Charlie Rose of sexual misconduct, a report Thursday calls into question CBS News' claims that his behavior was a surprise before he was sacked last November.

Two of the plaintiffs, Brooks Harris and Chelsea Wei, worked with Rose at "CBS This Morning", where he was a co-anchor until his November 21 firing.

The three women each worked at CBS in various capacities in the years between 2015 and 2018.

There are also other women who say they were sexually harassed by Mr.

The complaint - filed in New York County Supreme Court by former CBS employees Katherine Harris and Sydney McNeal, as well as current employee Yuqing Wei - alleges the network knew about Rose's long history of sexual misconduct around young female coworkers but did nothing to stop it.

Angrily reacting to the report, Trump said it was "disgraceful" that classified information was illegally leaked to the media. Mueller was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May 2017 after Comey was sacked .

When the women objected or complained about his behavior to CBS, Rose threatened to fire them, intimidated them and called them idiots, before sacking two of them after a newspaper article appeared accusing him of harassment, the lawsuit says.

Ms. Harris and Ms. McNeal assert that Mr. According to the lawsuit Rose wrote in a letter to Harris offering her a job on his show, saying "I want you to be at the center of my professional world....", "You help me get through the day", "we will celebrate" and "I look forward to the most exciting year of our lives". The lawsuit also alleges that Wei warned Kadro about Rose's behavior. With the stories that have come out about the likes of Rose, Matt Lauer and Mark Halperin, the networks are making strides but women need to know they can report wrongdoings without repercussions, she said.

Rose then contacted Wei, who was an anchor assistant on "CBS This Morning" at the time, telling her, "My relationship with you is the man I am in all my relationships", according to the complaint.

Rose was sued in 1986 by several women alleging sexual misconduct, which the network settled discreetly.

During lunches with Harris, Rose would place "his hands on her thigh and [kiss] her cheek", the lawsuit alleges. The suit also states that Rose referred to Wei as "China doll", caressed her arms, and whispered in her ear "Happy birthday, dear".

Mancini has managed Fiorentina, Lazio, Inter Milan (twice), Man City and Galatasaray in a successful managerial career. Italy have been managed by Italy U-21 manager Luigi Di Biagio as a caretaker since the sacking of Gian Piero Ventura.

The women include a broadcast associate, a news associate and Rose's executive assistant. Wei filed an HR complaint, and was subsequently moved to a different assignment.

Wei has taken medical leave from the show.

CBS News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Goldberg said he first reached out to CBS and Rose in February to make them aware of the potential claims.

The Post has since reported that a total 35 women have come forward with allegations against Rose, whom one former intern reportedly said "falls toward the worst end of the spectrum" of sexual harassment.
