Dear Charlie Rose, let me ask you a query: Since you all the time held your self aloft as a big-time smarty pants, how did you handle to stay above all of it, what along with your smarmy smarty pants down round your ankles?
And if you happen to’re actually so good, did you truthfully consider you have been sustaining that well-known stoic dignity of yours if you uncovered your self to disgusted staff like some freak on the subway?
What ARE you guys — feral canines marking your territory, or simply highly effective pervs with pretensions?
For such an acknowledged “brilliant journalist,” did you badume that bursting out of the lavatory and prancing round bare in entrance of miserably uncomfortable feminine staff, or groping their butts, bads and bads — as quite a few former staff alleged — was, as you counsel, a “shared feeling?”

What if a boss — who had your future actually in his arms — had grabbed you by the balls or made you sit in his resort room whereas he was prancing round butt bare? Would you may have been sharing his emotions or would your fist have been sharing his face between the eyes? Exactly.
In case you hadn’t figured it out but, let me clear it up for you: The variety of staff who needed to see your shifting man elements swinging round a room throughout a enterprise badembly is, and was, precisely zero.
What’s that you simply say? Oh proper, you hadn’t thought of any of that since you did not but have that newfound respect for ladies factor going — the one you discovered simply yesterday.
Sorry, however by no means within the transient however prolific historical past of male badual misconduct apologies has anybody — dumb or good — made as dumb an announcement as your squirm-worthy: “I have learned a great deal as a result of these events, and I hope others will too. All of us, including me, are coming to a newer and deeper recognition of the pain caused by conduct in the past, and have come to a profound new respect for women and their lives.”

New respect? What about old style respect? Clearly you are saying you by no means had respect for ladies till you bought caught along with your pants down.
But at the very least now I lastly perceive why you may have been deferring of late all conversations concerning the male badual scandals to the ladies on “CBS This Morning” as an alternative of tackling them your self.

During the early days of the Harvey Weinstein mess, for instance, you solely requested visitor Tina Brown, “First of all, what happens to him now?”
Phony elitist coward. You have been asking for your self.

Thing is Charlie, you may have deeply harm not simply the ladies you preyed upon, however their households, in addition to the ladies with whom you’re employed and their households; folks like my buddy Gayle King, about whom I occur to care deeply.
And you harm the occupation we ALL care so deeply about.
By holding your self above everybody whilst you have been mired within the cesspool, you gave the individuals who condemn our occupation one thing to consider in — and it is not us.
In my novel “Book of Judas,” a reporter faces a scenario by which a breaking scandal includes her buddy and he or she faces the quandary many reporters face at one time or one other. Do you report it, disregard it or recuse your self from it?
