Washington Post: Eight Women Accuse Charlie Rose of Having Sexually Harassed Them, With "Nudity," "Groping," and "Lewd Calls"



I can't read the story -- I don't pay for the Post and never will -- but the sub-hed says that "the incidents took place with employees, interns, and job applicants."

Employees, interns, and job applicants.

That's gonna be a problem. Especially the last two. Though if "employee" means works-directly-under-you, that's a big deal too.

If anyone has a cop of this story, please email it to me.

Here's some nuggets from Twitter:


Update: Here's the Hollywood Reporter's recap of what the Washington Post claims.

The ages of the women range from 21 to 37, with alleged incidents dating from 1990-2011... Due to his stature in the industry, five of the eight women that spoke to the Post did so on the condition of anonymity.

The allegations from the multiple women have a variety of similarities. Five separate accusers described incidents in which Rose put his hand on their upper thigh in order to get a reaction. Two women claimed Rose emerged from a shower and walked around naked in front of them. One claimed that Rose groped her bottom at a staff party....

One of the accusers who spoke to the Post on the record, Reah Bravo, was an intern and associate producer in 2007 for Rose’s PBS show, claimed Rose made unwanted sexual advances toward her while she was working for him at his private waterfront estate in Bellport, New York. She called Rose "a sexual predator" and also claimed he made advances on her while they were traveling together in cars, a private plane and in a hotel suite.

Another on-record accuser, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan who was one of Rose’s assistants in the mid-2000s, claimed that on over a dozen separate occasions Rose walked nude in front of her while she was working at one of his New York City homes. She was 21 years old at the time. She also claims that Rose called her multiple times, early in the morning or late at night, to describe fantasies of her swimming nude in his pool while he watched from his bedroom.

Ryan says she brought the calls up to Rose's longtime executive producer Yvette Vega, who she says responded, "That’s just Charlie being Charlie." Ryan claims she was fired by Rose shortly thereafter.

Again with the walking around naked.

Honestly, I had no idea this was such a thing.

I'd always heard that Charlie Rose was a lothario who got a lot of women. Maybe he did when he was younger, and maybe, as he aged, he was frustrated to find that the young flowers didn't turn to his sun and open their petals like they used to. Maybe he started getting more aggressive.

I don't know. I can't even read the story. I don't know if any of this is true. I'm just telling you what people in whom I have absolutely no trust are saying about someone else I have no trust in.

Once again, we see accused progressive men using similar language in their mea non culpas.
