I'm an unflappable New Yorker. Hollywood & sex? Congress & sex? Corporate America & sex? YAWN. Charlie Rose with his erudite and non-confrontational demeanor parading his naked wrinkly 65-year-old self in front of 20-something women shocked me. CBS responded appropriately - quickly & decisively. Netflix & Sony did the same with Kevin Spacey.

None of these actions are new. Laws about hostility in the workplace have been on the books since 1964. Here we are 50 years later and some posters have the audacity to cast doubt when multiple men and women accuse the same predator.

Are you just willfully blind? Or if you think back, did you do the same thing at work 10 years ago, 20 years ago, 30 years ago? Did you ever once touch a co-worker without her consent? Was it okay because boys will be boys just as "Charlie was being Charlie?" as HR told one employee who reported his illegal advances?

I can't say I was surprised. Charlie has always impressed me as a hard drinking man's man. He is from a time when women were not respected.

I hate to say it, but nothing is surprising in this regard.
It will be interesting, and distressing, as more names come out
This has apparently cost the taxpayers a large sum of money of the past 15 year (17 million) with guilty parties on both sides of the aisle

My oldest brother had an interview with someone from his staff to work directly for him. He talked around after the interview and declined the 2nd interview which would have been with Charlie.

Many negative comments and stories were the jist of the feedback he got. Charlie was reported as not a very nice person.

Regarding Congressional members that are involved in this type of thing. I hope they get hammered. I hate them all.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone (politicians excluded)

While I'm a fan of Charlie's PBS show, I'm not surprised by the news of his behavior. He's always seemed a bit too entitled and arrogant to me if that's the right word....I suspect it's this attitude that made him think he could behave the way he has for what sounds like years.

Beyond that I always found Charlie's interview style a bit annoying given he interrupts his subjects constantly. Chris Matthews is another person who tends to do so far, far too much. It's very rude, frankly....

I was taken aback by it, I found his interviews to be great. I respected him as a journalist, but alas journalists are just people with failings. We think they are more ethical, are held to a higher standard, and then we are disappointed and saddened to learn otherwise.

As to the decision to let him go, sexual harassment cannot be tolerated in any business, so they were correct to take that action, even though he is a fine journalist.

Agreed. Why isn't this topic in the whipping post?
