Famous TV interviewer of world leaders, Charlie Rose, suspended by CBS News and PBS over sexual harassment allegations

This is really shocking. Charlie Rose has, or I should now say had, such a great stature as a top TV media reporter who would interview top political leaders across the globe. I have seen quite a few of his interviews and found them to be great.

Like USA Senator Al Franken, Charlie Rose has acknowledged some (not all of the behaviour alleged) inappropriate sexual behaviour and has apologized.

The main report: Eight women say Charlie Rose sexually harassed them — with nudity, groping and lewd calls, https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/eight-women-say-charlie-rose-sexually-harassed-them--with-nudity-groping-and-lewd-calls/2017/11/20/9b168de8-caec-11e7-8321-481fd63f174d_story.html, 20th Nov. 2017

News Wrap: Journalist Charlie Rose taken off the air after report of sexual misconduct, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODGMXmIIE0E, by PBS Newshour, first around 4 minutes or so covers this matter, 10 min. 22 secs, 20th Nov. 2017 (the other one of the two journalists of the WaPo investigative report speaks in this video).

The article below is an interesting view of Charlie Rose's career.
