Here’s what Charlie Rose said about sexual harassment before he was fired for it

Watch how Charlie Rose covered sexual harassment before he was fired

“What should be the conversation now about sexual harassment?”

That’s what Charlie Rose asked New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor on October 20, in a “CBS This Morning” segment about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Now, Rose himself is out as a morning host after facing sexual harassment allegations of his own.

Like every journalist these days, Rose spent a lot of time talking about the harassment stories that have been making headlines. Here’s some of what he’s said.

When Roger Ailes died in May, Rose hosted a panel on his PBS interview show to discuss the Fox News founder.

“Let’s assume all of the things that … tainted Roger Ailes’ career, all the sexual harassment stuff, had not been there,” Rose said to journalists Gabriel Sherman and Jim Rutenberg. “What would be his legacy?”

Fast forward to 2017, and Weinstein stands accused of sexual harassment and assault by dozens of women after reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker.
