‘CBS This Morning’ Anchors Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell Denounce Charlie Rose Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

The Nov. 21 edition of “CBS This Morning” began with a story that hit close to their home as its anchor Charlie Rose was accused of sexual harassment in the workplace by at least eight women over the span of over two decades, according to The Washington Post.

Rose has since been suspended from CBS and his other TV network, PBS. His PBS talk show has been placed on immediate hiatus while claims continue to be investigated.

“CBS This Morning” anchors Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell each commented on the situation. O’Donnell stated, “This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women.

King added a personal note, “I really am reeling. I got 1 hour & 42 minutes of sleep last night, both my son and my daughter called me. Oprah called me and said, are you okay? I am not okay. After reading that article in the Post, it was deeply disturbing, troubling and painful for me to read.
