  • Charlie Rose Sued by 3 CBS Staffers for Sexual Harassment

Three women filed a sexual harassment lawsuit on Friday against former CBS News television anchor Charlie Rose, accusing the prominent journalist of touching them inappropriately and making offensive comments.

The current plaintiffs, Katherine Harris and Sydney McNeal, who used to work for Charlie Rose, and Yuqing Wei, who is still employed by CBS, sued the former anchor and the network itself on Friday, May 4.

The lawsuit comes on the heels of 27 new women coming forward with allegations against their former co-worker.

CBS News President David Rhodes has said publicly there "was not knowledge" of Rose's alleged sexual harassment.

Rose was sacked in November from his job as co-host of "CBS This Morning" after the Washington Post reported that eight women alleged he had sexually harassed them.

The suit also accuses Mr. Kadro of harassment, saying that at one point previous year he "kicked and shoved Ms. Wei's chair with substantial force, startling, intimidating and scaring Ms. Wei".

The suit alleges that Rose would also berate the three young staffers, calling them "idiots", and questioning their abilities.

The lawsuit alleges that "CBS This Morning" Executive Producer Ryan Kadro "knew that Mr".

CBS fired Rose last fall.

The sapling was a gift from French President Emmanuel Macron for his state visit with US President Donald Trump last week. Australian ABC News tweeted: "Lost in translation: Emmanuel Macron thanks the PM's "delicious wife".

Rose then contacted Wei, who was an anchor assistant on "CBS This Morning" at the time, telling her, "My relationship with you is the man I am in all my relationships", according to the complaint.

But, according to the complaint, the defendants "unlawfully failed and refused to take any remedial action and allowed Mr". They allege Rose pulled them close to his body and kissed them on the cheek.

The allegations include details of comments Rose made about their intelligence and their ethnicity. The suit also states that Rose referred to Wei as "China doll", caressed her arms, and whispered in her ear "Happy birthday, dear". The newspaper also reported that CBS managers were warned of Rose's conduct at least three times over a period of 30 years.

In the suit, Ms. Wei, an assistant, said she expressed concerns a year ago to the current executive producer of "CBS This Morning", Ryan Kadro, about the amount of attention that Mr.

Kadro did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The woman said she complained to PBS management and was told that Rose was harmless. Ms. Wei has been on medical leave since March, the suit said.

The women's attorney, Ken Goldberg, of the Manhattan firm Goldberg & Fliegel, said his clients have a strong claim under New York City Human Rights law, which he describes in the lawsuit as one of the "broadest and most protective laws against discrimination in the nation".

"CBS was fully aware of".

The network sacked Rose, once one of America's most well-respected television news hosts, on November 21, less than 24 hours after eight women leveled sexual harassment accusations against him in The Washington Post.
