Ex-CBS TV anchor Charlie Rose hit with sexual harassment lawsuit

Charlie Rose just got hit with a sexual harassment lawsuit from 3 women he worked with at CBS including his personal assistant

"Mr. Rose openly engaged in unlawful sexual harassment against Plaintiffs during business hours, at the CBS Studios, at Charlie Rose Studios, as well as offsite", the lawsuit states.

Three women are suing Charlie Rose and CBS News for sexual harassment and discrimination.

Harris and McNeal say Rose would tell the women they should become lovers. with each other, not him.

Former CBS news associate Yuqing "Chelsea" Wei, former broadcast associate Katherine Brooks Harris and Rose's former executive assistant Sydney McNeal claim the network never tried to protect them, despite having known about Rose's inappropriate behavior for years. 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.

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

After the bombshell story, Rose admitted to some of the allegations but has claimed there was no wrongdoing.

Roland Kohr at Terre Haute Regional Hospital completed the autopsy and concluded a single gunshot wound to head killed Pitts. When the state police investigation is complete, it will be submitted to the Vigo County Prosecutor's Office for review.

The lawsuit alleges that Rose made sexually explicit comments and engaged in sexual contact with three employees. The complaint also accused the network of demoting Wei in retaliation for her complaint against Rose.

CBS News fired Charlie Rose last fall. CBS "did not investigate the complaint, and did not take any remedial action", the lawsuit alleges. The three women are represented by Kenneth Goldberg of Goldberg Fliegel, who could not be reached for comment Friday. According to the suit, Rose would invite Harris and McNeal out for dinners, and then sexually touched them on their thighs and kissed them on their cheeks. Rose's co-hosts on "CBS This Morning" sharply condemned their suspended colleague Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, after the airing of sexual misconduct allegations that included groping female staffers and walking around naked in front of them, saying that it's a time of reckoning in society.

Rose referred to Wei as a "China doll" and caressed her arms when she handed him papers, according to the lawsuit. He later offered her a job with his company, which produced "The Charlie Rose Show" which aired on Bloomberg and PBS. Wei filed an HR complaint, and was subsequently moved to a different assignment. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless.

Kadro did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The lawsuit says that Wei's health suffered as a result of her experience with CBS.

Eleanor McManus, co-founder of Press Forward, a group of women who have been victims of sexual misconduct in newsrooms, said the Post report illustrated a systematic problem across news organizations that needed to be addressed.

In the following three decades, three CBS managers had been made aware of the complaints, according to the Post investigation.
