#MeToo advocate Les Moonves issues puzzling apology for sexual misconduct allegations

Ronan Farrow is the journalist who exposed Harvey Weinstein in an exposé for the New Yorker and brought the sanctimonious Hollywood class to its knees by exposing one of their own.

Now, Leslie Moonves, a proponent of Hollywood's #MeToo movement, is at the center of one of Farrow's unrelenting exposés. In it, Farrow unveils the six women who are accusing the CBS chairman and CEO of sexual misconduct.

Four women say Moonves forcibly touched them and kissed them during business meetings between the 1980s and late 2000s and two of the six said he threatened their careers by using his position of power.

Amid the fallout from the investigative report, Moonves issued a statement where he somewhat apologized but not really.

Here's what he said:

Throughout my time at CBS, we have promoted a culture of respect and opportunity for all employees, and have consistently found success elevating women to top executive positions across our company. I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances. Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely. But I always understood and respected — and abided by the principle — that ‘no’ means ‘no,’ and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone’s career. This is a time when we all are appropriately focused on how we help improve our society, and we at CBS are committed to being part of the solution.

Doc and Kris were seriously perplexed. Catch their reaction to Moonves's apology in the clip above.
