CBS CEO Les Moonves Accused Of Sexual Harassment

The New Yorker magazine has distributed an article by Ronan Farrow itemizing allegations of inappropriate behavior by CBS CEO Les Moonves and other men at the organization. 

Farrow talked with 30 present and previous CBS representatives about asserted ill-advised conduct by Moonves toward staff at CBS News and a hour. Farrow said six ladies said Moonves had sexually annoyed them. Others disclosed to Farrow that other men at the organization who were blamed for despicable conduct were advanced, as CBS paid settlements to the ladies who griped. 

The New Yorker cites casualties as saying their professions were hurt by opposing Moonves' advances. In an announcement to the magazine, Moonves says he laments progresses made decades prior when he "may have made a few ladies awkward," however he denies abusing his situation to hurt anybody's vocation. The assertions against Moonves return two decades yet in addition detail later occurrences. 

The organization's announcement stated: "All affirmations of individual offense are to be considered important. The Independent Directors of CBS have focused on examining claims that damage the Company's reasonable approaches in such manner." 

The announcement does not name Moonves specifically, but rather it is titled "Explanation From CBS Independent Directors Regarding The New Yorker." 

Farrow is the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who, alongside The New York Times a year ago, broke the account of Harvey Weinstein's sexual wrongdoing. 

CBS shares dove on news of the organization's examination concerning its CEO and director. 

Moonves, 68, has headed CBS Corporation since 2016. Prior to that, he headed CBS Entertainment a CBS Television. He is at present involved in a battle with Shari Redstone of Viacom Corp., which is endeavoring to converge with CBS. 

A previous performing artist, Moonves is hitched to CBS on-air identity Julie Chen.
