[Ed. – Other than that he was a terrific boss.]
The indignities just went on and on.
Reah Bravo, a former intern for Charlie Rose, writes in The New York Review of Books she was asked to unclog a toilet “brimming with feces” in the journalist’s Long Island home.
In 2007, Bravo who worked as an unpaid intern for Rose, was asked to come to his summer residence in Bellport, N.Y., to help organize his library. It was during her position working for him, she writes, that she learned his predatory behavior toward young women was “an open secret.”
Bravo’s essay follows a new Washington Post story in which 27 additional women came forward to accuse Rose of sexual harassment. The Post investigation also alleges that upper management was well aware of his behavior for over three decades.
Bravo echoes that sentiment. “I would expect CBS executives to have known,” she writes. “The man’s secret was as reliably open as a Waffle House.”
Rose was fired from CBS and his self-titled program dropped from PBS in November following a report of alleged sexual misconduct claims by multiple women. Rose served as co-host of CBS This Morning from 2012 to November 2017 and contributed to 60 Minutes.
