Charlie Rose Terminated By CBS News, Effective Immediately

CBS has terminated Charlie Rose, effective immediately, after eight women accused him of sexual misconduct.

In a memo, CBS said that "Despite Charlie's important journalist contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace—a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place."

On Monday night, the Washington Post reported that eight woman accused Rose of sexual misconduct.

The CBS “This Morning” co-host had been accused of making unwanted sexual advances that ranged from walking around naked in front of women who worked for him, making lewd suggestions during phone calls, and groping their breasts, butt or genital areas.

Overnight Charlie Rose released a statement in which he apologized "deeply" and said he had learned a great deal as a result of these events, although he countered that he did not believe "all of the accusations were accurate."

Some were surprised by Charlie Rose's sudden and dramatic fall from grace; some were not...

I'm beginning to wonder if I'm the only male creature that is not a total animal.If I didn't know my own self, I would suspect that all men are just animals. I suppose most women must think that.These idiots are giving men a bad name.Actually, there seems to be a very strong correlation between having a powerful social position and being a compulsive groper. Seriously.

You're not alone, Bluez.  Although I am far from perfect, the thought of cheating on my wife would never even cross my mind.Most men who aspire to positions of power have immense flaws in character, morals and are just plain psychopathic.  This is why ALL who seek such grandiose dominance over others are to be watched with great suspicion.

Actually, what Bach said is true.

Human history is replete with tales of psychopaths seeking power over other people.

That's what made the US potentially different. The founding fathers took that into account when they devised their system.

What they didn't account for was the psychopaths in the relative positions in the checks and balances to work out 'arrangements' with the other psychopaths in order to undermine and game the system.

So, no, humans have not devised a foolproof system of checks and balances within governance.

This makes the social contract null and void, therefore we live in a state of nature and survival of the fittest and the smartest is extant.

I think your reading comprehension deficit is apparent and indicates your survival instincts are found wanting.

As usual, we cannot believe their motive is to help victims because the stated crimes are so much less worse than what is really happening in elite circles.Also, we cannot believe their motive is to help victims because they are completely ignoring how so many no longer believe the accusers when the media is on their side because the courts and the media are SO biased, SO dishonest, and thus so often wrong.

Thanks for the link. I'll bet there's a lot more to THAT story. That guy sounds like enough of a true believer and enough of an insider, that by 46, he must have had some idea that he was working for the bad guys and that both parties work for the same bad people. That would make him genuinely disturbed--not enough to kill himself, but enough to concern his handlers greatly. He was a fighter, he had money, and he had inside information, so they could not let him turn at all costs. He must have had some idea this was coming

Now everyone knows who the real generals, commanders and soldiers were/are in the "War on Women!". This has revealed that libtards are nothing but hypocrites orchestrating a giant psyop to keep their greatest crimes buried. The last gasp will be when PizzaGate comes back from the dead like some unstopple zombie to devour the libtard hypocrites. The ultimate Schadenfreude!

People are tuning it off and the easy way to tell who still is on it is to look at the advertising on it.  It is all geared towards older people and women.  This sexual harassment stuff may, just may smack the women in their heads enough to wake them up and say "hey, Entertainment news is a waste of my time", we can pray.  Also Just say no to Soy, it messes with your hormones.

FAKE NEWSIES SHOW THEIR REAL CHARACTER!!!!!!Or, no s**t Sherlock!One hears some low-level fakey newsy types bemoaning the loss of Charlie Rose's "professionalism"  --- OH MY GOD!!!!!Long ago I checked out submediocrity Charlie Rose (but he's won all those "awards") and found that he was a long-time member of David Rockefeller's Trilateral Commission (his name only being removed from their membership list when he went big-time on CBS).Rose, always the farce along with Brian Williams, Dan Rother, Cokie Roberts and all the rest.

I never "whipped my schlong" at a Christmas party. I've seen more than one career derailed at these senseless seasonal blow-offs. I dreaded them, make nice Peace on Earth Good Will To Men with the exact people who had been stabbing you in the back all year. I worked in a corporate snakepit and it was repulsive to see all the snakes slithering in the barrel. I was known as an "honest" man, I would never have made it today. It is a form of corporate Bolzhevism.

I have seen similar behavior. It's not so much badge of honor as it's I'm in the clique, I belong, I'm a member of the team tribe club. People need a sense of belonging. I had a love/hate relationship with my employer. If familiarity breeds contempt then I had four decades and a bellyfull and yet I was one of the old guard that strongly identified with the "work".

Shit, I once set-up a girl with a rather well-off aquaintence and after their date they went back to his place.  He excused himself to use the bathroom and she sat down to admire his beautiful piano...then smack, he ploped his shlong on her shoulder from behind. She turned around and the dude was balls-ass naked...true story. Turns out the motherfucker was notorious for just stripping naked after a date and doing all sorts of wierd shit.He never thought he was doing anything wrong.The world is a fucked up place.
