Charlie Rose is facing swift backlash from broadcast networks Monday after lurid allegations were launched against him by staffers.
CBS has suspended him from “60 Minutes” — and both PBS and Bloomberg will discontinue their nightly airing of “Charlie Rose” — following the report published by The Washington Post.
PBS said in a statement that they were “shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations.”
“We are immediately suspending distribution of “Charlie Rose,” they added.
PBS added, however, that Rose’s show is independently produced and not funded or supervised by the network.
In a statement, Bloomberg said: “We are deeply disturbed to learn of these allegations and are immediately suspending the show from airing on Bloomberg TV.”
At CBS — where Rose serves as a correspondent for “60 Minutes” — sources said his days were numbered.
“This is pretty bad, we don’t think he can come back from this,” a source said.
“He has been suspended, and it appears to be likely that more allegations could come out in the coming days, from current or former CBS employees.”
