US networks suspend Rose over sexual harassment allegations

US networks suspend Rose over sexual harassment allegationsCharlie Rose, one of America’s most respected broadcasters, an award-winning television host and interviewer, was suspended Monday after eight women accused him of years of sexual harassment and unwanted advances. A bombshell Washington Post report said the women were employees or aspired to work on the “Charlie Rose” show and were in their 20s and 30s when the alleged harassment took place from the 1990s to as recently as 2011. The report makes Rose, now 75, the latest senior male journalist accused of misconduct in the wake of the downfall of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, which opened the floodgates of sexual assault and harassment accusations in many industries.
