washington - Again a big name in the American television industry has been discredited because of sexual intimidation. Presenter Charlie Rose has been put on hold by the CBS channel. He is accused by eight women of unwanted intimacies who told their story to the Washington Post.
In addition to CBS, PBS and Bloomberg have also suspended the presenter.
Rose would have, among other things, made obscene phone calls, walked around naked in the presence of the women and touched the breasts, buttocks and the genitals of the women. The women worked for Rose or wanted to work for him when he presented the show Charlie Rose. The offenses took place between the late 90s and 2011.
In a statement, the 75-year-old Rose apologizes for his 'improper behavior,' but also said that he does not believe that all accusations are correct.
