The bloom has fallen from Charlie Rose as he has become the latest in the tsunami of sexual harassment accusations that have gripped politics, media and the…
It’s getting to the point where we need to use a spreadsheet to keep track of all of the liberal Democrats in the media, showbiz and politics who are being accused of doing things sexually that are at a minimum offensive to others and often criminal.
The latest to have his name added to the list is CFR member and condescending elite leftist Charlie Rose, who now finds himself suspended from not only his seat at the table on the CBS This Morning program, but also from his show Bloomberg and PBS broadcasts of Charlie Rose and appearances on 60 Minutes.
CBS issued a statement saying, “Charlie Rose is suspended immediately while we look into this matter. These allegations are extremely disturbing and we take them very seriously.” To quote Jeff Flake, Rose is toast. It’s tough to prove that nothing happened even if that is the case. His comments seem to indicate there is some fire under the smoke.
The Washington Post is once again the bearer of accusations, claiming to have spoken with eight women for their story about Rose. They were all Charlie Rose employees between the late 1990s and 2011. The networks, CBS, PBS and Bloomberg all verified that they to the Post that “they have no records of sexual harassment complaints about Charlie Rose.”
PBS put out a statement saying, “PBS was shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations. We are immediately suspending distribution of ‘Charlie Rose. ‘ They added a little insulation for themselves, saying, “PBS does not fund this nightly program or supervise its production, but we expect our producers to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect. “
Bloomberg had a similar message, “We are deeply disturbed to learn of these allegations and are immediately suspending the show from airing on Bloomberg TV.”
The incidences were described by the Washington Post, writing, “Five described Rose putting his hand on their legs, sometimes their upper thigh, in what they perceived as a test to gauge their reactions. Two said that while they were working for Rose at his residences or were traveling with him on business, he emerged from the shower and walked naked in front of them. One said he groped her buttocks at a staff party.”
In his statement Rose in response, Rose played his semi-naive promoter of women card, saying, “In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked. Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues.”
He continued, “It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.
“I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.” That line of crap might work for a high school kid. Rose knew what he was doing.
It seems Rose took his advocacy for women a little too personally, advocating for their right to see him naked and to enjoy the thrill of a surprise personal experience with him. Maybe he felt he’d earned it or engaged in the advocacy in order to create a false persona as a cover against backlash.
Maybe he’s just a typical liberal hypocrite who got caught pretending to be something he isn’t and attacking others who were in situations less offensive than their own conduct, from the safety of the public illusion.
Perhaps Rose remembers he and his colleagues having field day after field day attacking candidate and President Trump for accusations that were never proven and conduct that was much less offensive, like locker room talk on a bus.
It’s called Karma Charlie, how do you libs like it?
