Charlie Rose and CBS sued for sexual harassment

Charlie Rose Sued by 3 CBS Staffers for Sexual Harassment

Three former junior female colleagues sued disgraced television anchor Charlie Rose and CBS News on Friday for discrimination, harassment and retaliation, seeking unspecified damages in NY.

The plaintiffs in Friday's lawsuit - Katherine Harris, Sydney McNeal and Yuqing Wei - worked in different capacities for Rose past year while he was a co-host for CBS This Morning, according to the complaint.

Rose, a co-host on CBS This Morning and a correspondent for the network's flagship Sunday night news program 60 Minutes, is among numerous men in politics, business and the entertainment industry who have seen their careers implode following allegations of sexual misconduct, fuelling the social media #MeToo movement in the past few months.

CBS said in a statement, "We will vigorously defend against the allegations pertaining to CBS News and Mr. Kadro".

The lawsuit comes one day after the Washington Post published an investigative story that reported an additional 27 women, including 14 CBS News employees, had accused Rose of harassment.

He asked Harris and McNeal to describe their sex lives and boasted of his own conquests, according to the lawsuit.

The three women claim Rose had a nasty side, berating them for booking the incorrect flights and calling them idiots.

The lawsuit also accuses CBS executives of failing to warn employees of Rose's history of sexual misconduct. The lawsuit also alleges that Wei warned Kadro about Rose's behavior. Rose also placed "his hands on her thighs and [kissed]" McNeal on the cheek as well, the lawsuit alleges. Rose and CBS was filed by three women in their 20s: Katherine Harris and Sydney McNeal, former employees of Mr.

Rose repeatedly required Harris to have lunch and dinner with him, where he would place his hands on her thigh and would point at other women and call them prostitutes, according to the claim. The suit also states that Rose referred to Wei as "China doll", caressed her arms, and whispered in her ear "Happy birthday, dear".

"CBS never got back to Ms. Wei about her complaint", the suit said.

For many years, Rose did his PBS interview show at the same time he worked for CBS, and the Post story also examined his behavior there. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless.

In the suit, Ms. Wei, an assistant, said she expressed concerns previous year to the current executive producer of "CBS This Morning", Ryan Kadro, about the amount of attention that Mr.

Wei has taken medical leave from the show.

CBS News said it could not confirm or corroborate numerous stories told by The Post.

Goldberg said he first reached out to CBS and Rose in February to make them aware of the potential claims. The new allegations date as early as 1976, when, as one woman claims, Mr.

The women are suing Rose and CBS for discrimination, retaliation and sexual harassment.
