  • Three CBS employees accuse Charlie Rose of sexual harassment

Arizona State University is considering revoking an award given to Charlie Rose after several women who worked with him at CBS News and PBS alleged a pattern of sexual misconduct, including groping and walking naked in front of them.

"Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace - a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work", the memo said.

At first, the 62-year-old told Stephen Colbert that she considered canceling her appearance on his late-night show, but ultimately chose to go through with it in order to show that CBS is a "top-notch news organization".

In a statement earlier this week, Rose said he had "behaved insensitively" at times.

The morning after the report came out, King and O'Donnell covered the allegations on their show, which King said was unprecedented for her.

'It's Still Very Hurtful.' Gayle King Opens Up to Stephen Colbert About Charlie Rose Allegations

"It's still very painful, it's still very hurtful", King told Colbert on Tuesday night. She told Colbert she was "wincing" at his monologue about Rose, where he said it was "hurricane season" for sexual harassment allegations.

"To be honest with you, it still isn't easy", King said.

"I think he's probably troubled, and I have empathy for people that are troubled and, you know, I think we all have issues in life".

"He asked me, 'How does this make you feel?' I did not run, but I [was] just like, 'Oh, okay. But when you think about the anguish of those women despite that friendship, you still have to report the news". Her absence might change in the near future! They're now being believed!.

The allegations of sexual harassment of women, and some men, by powerful men keep piling up. "I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken", he said in his statement. "That also is something that I think will change". We really do need men to join this conversation.
