Charlie Rose’s morning show co-hosts on CBS are shaken by the sexual misconduct allegations against him, but say they support the women who have come forward to tell their stories.
“CBS This Morning” was put in the unusual position of reporting on one of their own hosts as their lead story Tuesday after the Washington Post disclosed that several women accused him of groping them and walking naked in front of them.
Co-host Norah O’Donnell says it’s a time of reckoning for women. She said, “This has to end.”
“This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women. Let me be very clear. There is no excuse for this alleged behavior. It is systematic and pervasive and I've been doing a lot of listening." -- @NorahODonnell pic.twitter.com/9P69QN7spu— CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) November 21, 2017
Her co-host, Gayle King, said it’s not the man she knows, but said she’s on the side of the women who are hurt and damaged.
