Two more journalists face sexual misconduct accusations …

Charlie Rose … Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that eight women have come forward and accused veteran broadcaster Charlie Rose of making “unwanted sexual advances” toward them. Shortly thereafter, CBS, PBS, and Bloomberg all suspended Rose pending the outcome of an investigation. Rose’s co-hosts on “CBS This Morning,” Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell, opened their show this morning by addressing the accusations and suspension. The two were powerful and forceful in their statements. O’Donnell said, “Let me be very clear: There is no excuse for this alleged behavior. It is systematic and pervasive.”

At 12:30 this afternoon, CBS News fired Rose. In a statement released on Twitter, CBS News president David Rhodes said, "There is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace." NBC News reported that it is not immediately clear if PBS or Bloomberg had also fired Rose.

Glenn Thrush … Yesterday morning, Vox published accusations from three women against New York Times White House reporter Glenn Thrush. The author of the piece is also one of the women making an accusation, from her time as Thrush’s colleague at Politico. The Times has suspended Thrush pending the results of an investigation. Thrush has pledged to enter a substance abuse program.
