27 more women accuse TV host Charlie Rose of sexual harassment

Allegations against Rose first surfaced publicly in November of 2017.

The earliest claim it found was from a woman named Joana Matthias, who worked with Rose at NBC News in 1976 and said he exposed his penis and touched her breasts at their bureau.

Rose was sacked as "CBS This Morning" anchor and PBS cancelled his interview show after an earlier Post report on women who said he groped them, made lewd remarks or walked around naked around them. Eight different women accused Rose of "making lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping their breasts, buttocks, or genital areas".

The newspaper interviewed 107 current and former CBS News employees as well as 24 others who worked with Rose at other television programs as part of a five-month investigation.

The women say he engaged in a variety of harassing behaviors, from comments to unwanted advances to sexual touching.

The Post reports that CBS managers were made aware of Rose's inappropriate conduct on three occasions: 1986, 2011, and 2017.

Responding to the article, Charlie Rose told publication in a statement, "Your story is unfair and inaccurate". Charlie Rose did not respond to request for comment from CNN.

"I had been there long enough to know that it was just the way things went", Sophie Gayter told The Post.

CBS News issued a statement Wednesday ahead of the story being published.

He is now being accused of sexual harassment by an additional 27 women.

However, The Washington Post reported that a manager was told of Rose's conduct at the earliest after an incident in 1986, where Rose badgered a news clerk about how often she had sex and if she enjoyed it.

Following the allegations of sexual misconduct that came out against the veteran interviewer, PBS chose to cancel the Charlie Rose show. She says Rose insisted she drink wine on the flight and later "paw [ed]" her. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless.

Some women who worked with Rose at "60 Minutes" said they were harassed but didn't report it to executives because they believed that men's careers took priority. She said she declined, waiting outside.

"It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior".

"I have a very bad case of deja vu, I have to say", King told viewers today, adding, "I feel sick to my stomach".

Rose was only disgraced and fired from both CBS and PBS after the Washington Post detailed a litany of allegations in a report late previous year.

Rumors about the Post's investigation have been roiling CBS News for months. "We've convened a working group of colleagues" to report issues and handle problems as management.

"That said, we can not corroborate or confirm numerous situations described", the statement continued. She complained to the show's top producer, Chris Licht, but asked him not to tell human resources about it. Licht told the newspaper he followed her wishes and also talked to Rose about the incident. "We are not done with this process".
