Charlie Rose's alleged harassment included dozens of women, repo

Almost six months after Charlie Rose was sacked from CBS for sexual harassment allegations, a new batch of claims has risen against the disgraced newsman.

The Washington Post published a new investigation on Thursday into how CBS News is handling the situation, and found that of the 27 women with accusations against Rose, 14 of them are CBS News employees, while 13 worked with Rose elsewhere.

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.

The women claims that Rose exposed himself to them, groped their buttocks and breasts and in one case asked that a young woman "ride him" in his hotel room.

CBS News denied that it had known about inappropriate behavior by Rose before The Post published its report in November.

The most recent incident was reported in early 2017, and the oldest dated back to 1986, according to the paper.

-In 2011, a woman who worked at "CBS This Morning" said Rose forcibly kissed her at a holiday party. Collins contends that Vega, who did not respond to a request for comment from the Post, shrugged off the episode. Rhodes said again in March at an event at George Washington University that he didn't know about the anchor's behavior, according to the Post. More than once, she said, Rose asked her to come into his bathroom while he was showering. In it he said how the network responds to complaints about sexual harassment has been a "significant focus" for the network this year.

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.

Rose worked on several shows at the network, most recently as an anchor on "CBS This Morning" and as a correspondent on "60 Minutes". She says Rose insisted she drink wine on the flight and later "paw [ed]" her. She told The Post that Rose said he'd hired her because he liked tall women. He later squeezed her breast during the vehicle ride from the airport. "That said, we can not corroborate or confirm numerous situations described", said Rhodes.

At the time, CBS News president David Rhodes explained the decision to fire Rose by saying, "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".

The new allegations come almost six months after the Post chronicled a pattern of sexual misconduct by the longtime journalist toward multiple women.

"It felt predatory", she said. We offer employees discretion and fairness, and we take swift action when we learn of unacceptable behavior.

"It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. We are not done with this process".

"It was a sexual land mine everywhere you stepped, " Homan-Ross, now 61, said of working in the show's Washington office.
