Gayle King says ousted Charlie Rose 'does not get a pass'

U.S. news host Charlie Rose is the latest public figure to be felled by sexual misconduct allegations, with broadcaster PBS halting distribution of his nightly interview show and CBS News suspending him following a Washington Post report with the accusations of eight women.

Rose was a co-host of "CBS This Morning" alongside Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King, who reacted to the news this morning on the show.

PBS also announced it was immediately suspending distribution of Charlie Rose, noting that the show is produced by Charlie Rose, Inc., an independent television production company.

He sent a statement to the Post saying he apologized for his inappropriate behavior.

Reuters could not independently verify the accounts of the women. That said, Charlie does not get a pass here. The allegations include unwanted sexual advances, lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, and groping. By Tuesday morning, CBS executives determined that it was impossible for him to return to "CBS This Morning", the daily broadcast he has co-hosted for the past five years.

King applauded those who had the courage to speak up against Rose, reiterating that there is no excuse for behavior of that nature.

I don't have a Heisman vote, but if I did I would not waste it on Baker Mayfield . I understand where they're coming from". "They're not adults yet".

Rose was one of the best-regarded names in TV news. It wasn't until the Post story that PBS said it knew about Rose's actions.

PBS had suspended his show late Monday after The Washington Post published an article about women who said he groped them and walked around naked in front of them. "PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect". O'Donnell also said that women can not achieve equality in the workplace until men take responsibility for their behaviour.

'I have behaved insensitively at times and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate.

In a statement, Rose apologised and said he was "greatly embarrassed".

"By the time he touched me the first time, he was already very angry", she told the Post. She said Rose groped her on multiple occasions and once, during a business trip to IN, called her to his hotel room where he emerged from a shower naked.

Rose had anchored "CBS This Morning" since 2012 and was also a contributor to the long-running newsmagazine "60 Minutes". I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.
