Three Women Sue Charlie Rose And CBS Over Alleged Sexual Harassment

Three women filed a sexual harassment lawsuit on Friday against former CBS News television anchor Charlie Rose, accusing the prominent journalist of touching them inappropriately and making offensive comments. In the suit, 2 of the women - Katherine Brooks Harris and Sydney McNeal, his assistant - say Rose told them they were hired specifically because he likes tall women.

In return, Rose then fired Harris and McNeal, both of whom were working directly for him, the complaint states, and they were not offered new positions with CBS.

Harris, McNeal and Wei all allege Rose physically and verbally sexually harassed them and also faced verbal abuse from the host.

In response, the Post wrote, CBS News said in a statement that it had worked to strengthen protections for employees in the wake of the Rose scandal but could not "corroborate or confirm numerous situations described" in the new report.

The suit also accuses Mr. Kadro of harassment, saying that at one point previous year he "kicked and shoved Ms. Wei's chair with substantial force, startling, intimidating and scaring Ms. Wei". According to the lawsuit Rose wrote in a letter to Harris offering her a job on his show, saying "I want you to be at the center of my professional world....", "You help me get through the day", "we will celebrate" and "I look forward to the most exciting year of our lives".

Rose and the network didn't do anything to deal with the problem. Rose reveal their stories it becomes clear, that the future may bring other lawsuits against the former CBS star.
