Charlie Rose Suggested That Two Female Employees Have Sex With Each Other, Lawsuit Alleges

Boss.

Some of this stuff is so ticky-tack that it makes me doubt the lawsuit as a whole -- why include nonsense if your can prove real stuff?

However, some of the allegations seem somewhat serious, if true. I guess that most of this stuff, in perfect isolation, would not be grounds for a big payout, and the lawsuit is about the cumulative effect that frequent sexual/flirtatious remarks had.

Three women are suing disgraced television journalist Charlie Rose and his former employer CBS News for his "blatant and repeated sexual harassment," according to new Manhattan court papers.

Katherine Brooks Harris, Syndey McNeal and Chelsea Wei, who are all in their 20s, began working for the 76-year-old broadcaster from 2016 through 2017 as associates or assistants, the documents say.

Rose told Harris and McNeal that he hired them because he likes "tall women" before asking about their sex lives, according to the Manhattan Supreme Court suit.

He also touched all three women's arms, shoulders, waists and backs and even demanded they give him a kiss before leaving for summer vacation, according to court papers.

When Harris wore a floral-patterned miniskirt to work, the TV host allegedly told her that "the roses on her skirt were his roses."

"Mr. Rose repeatedly boasted of his sexual conquests, telling [his employees], 'You should have seen the women that I was with when I was younger,' " the suit says.

He also "suggested to Ms. Harris and Ms. McNeal that they have sex with each other and told them words to the effect of, 'You just need to become lovers already,' indicating that he was having sexual fantasies about them," the suit says.

I need more TV clowns and degenerates lecturing me. That's what I need.

There was a time when TV people had about the same status as carneys and circusfolk. Then we became very stupid and began treating TV idiots as sages and role models.

We should go back to the old ways on this.
