Rebecca Johnson, who wrote a 1999 profile on ex- CBS This Morning host Charlie Rose for the New York Times Magazine, said Rose was an unmitigated X while she was writing the article.
Johnson posted on Facebook this week: We spent several days together, and I really came to dislike him. She continued, I had just signed a contract with Vogue and he asked me if I liked [then-Vogue-Editor-in-Chief] Anna Wintour. I replied that I didnt like her or not. It wasnt that kind of relationship. When he sensed my increasing coldness, he SO weirdly called me up and threatened to tell Anna I said I didnt like her.

Sounds like Charlie Rose deserved what he got many times over.
Maybe to get to the top you gotta be weird because a lot of them are.
CBS knew about this abuser and enabled him.
Was an ‘open secret’ about his sexually harassing young female staffers.
But I guess “Bill Clinton Rules” were in effect back then...
“CBS This Morning” should be renamed in honor of Charlie Roses, as “Creepy Bastard’s Show This Morning”.
I never knew, when he leaned across the table, whether he was trying to dominant the guest or getting ready to bite them, or both.

Gee - aren’t the Democrats one big happy family, just like the Manson Family?
Just think how many douchebags one would have to suffer to live and work in liberal land.
I only had to watch him for a couple minutes to see he was a real prick.
What is it they say, “Karma’s a b!tch”??!!
They done studies on psychopaths which point in that direction.
The stereotype of a "pyschopath" is weirdo who murders lots of people. Or something. In fact, a psychopath is someone with persistent antisocial behavior, impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, disinhibited, egotistical traits.
Many psychopaths have high IQs. They tend to be ruthless and focused on themselves and they can rise to the top of their field, whether that is business, politics, or entertainment. A lot of CEOs are basically psychopaths. As long as they stay within the law, it's not really obvious. But they behave like jerks.
Charlie Rose, Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton? Impaired empathy and remorse, and bold, disinhibited, egotistical traits. I'd say our society has a lot of pyschopaths at the top.
People who gain fame seem to think it makes them attractive. And irresistible. They cannot fathom why everyone doesn’t want to see their penis.
I think they are starting to get the message.
Is it just me or does anyone else get the sense that all these leftist men were only leftist because it assuaged their guilt for being womanizers. “Yeah yeah I try to bed as many women as I can but I’m a feminist and support them professionally so it’s all good.”
Yes. I heard about it over ten years ago.
We need a class action suit to follow this up from a couple hundred former and current CBS staffers.
How is this not a “hostile work environment”?
You’ve got the open secret of Charlie harassing these women. Bosses knew. Everyone knew. Nobody took any corrective action.
A billion dollar hit to CBS int he courtroom would be nice.
You perfectly captured the essence of that unfunny non-entity Stephen Colbert. Who?
To get to the top in a corrupt organization, you definitely need to be a bit of a sociopath
Ironic how when they released the tape of Trump saying that powerful men can grab women whenever they want with no repercussions, they thought it would knock him out of the race. It seems he wasn’t commenting on himself, but on the entertainment, media and political cesspool. Now it’s coming back to bite them. Biggest backfire in modern politics.
I dont think it was just to assuage their guilt. These pervy schmucks just believed deep down that women exist to please their penises and for nothing else, and they would say anything to get their penises happy all the time. I dont think they believed one word of equal rights or any rights for women. They just phonetically mouthed the lines that got women closer to their penises. Like how ABBA used to record songs.
Funniest thing ever
You summed it up perfectly.
They dont get it. Trump prophetically described back then exactly what we are finding out right now. Famous people grab people by the genitals. Or show them their own. Trump was right on, describing THEM, not himself.
