CBS may not release findings of internal investigation into Les Moonves

CBS may not release findings of internal investigation into Les Moonves

In response to the initial allegations against Mr. Moonves in late July, and taking into consideration his own statement on the matter, Bucknell removed his name from a prominent room on campus and removed references on our website that celebrated Mr. Moonves and his ties to the University.

With those optics in mind, CBS said Sunday night that Moonves and CBS will donate $20 million to organizations that support the #MeToo movement and other groups fighting for workplace equity for women.

"Untrue allegations from decades ago are now being made against me that are not consistent with who I am", he said in a statement. But with Moonves' departure, CBS announced that it was dropping its lawsuit against National Amusements in return for National Amusements confirming it would not seek a merger between the companies for the next two years. The best part of this journey has been working alongside the dedicated and talented people in this company.

Moonves kept a relatively low profile in August, but remained in charge of the broadcasting behemoth.

But this weekend, The New Yorker followed up that report with a scathing new expose of Moonves' decades of sexual misconduct since even before he joined CBS in 1995, detailing the accusations of six new women who alleged that Moonves sexually harassed or assaulted them between the 1980s and early 2000s.

What's worrisome is that the storm could stall at that point and wring out heavy, flooding rains throughout the area. All government services will remain in operation tomorrow as Hurricane Florence passes to the south of the island.

The board had been in the process of a potential exit package for Moonves - worth anywhere from $100 million to $150 million, according to reports. The organization or organizations would be selected by Moonves in consultation with CBS. The donation, which will be made immediately, has been deducted from any severance benefits that may be due Moonves following the Board's ongoing independent investigation. "I know nothing about the man, other than that he's Julie's husband, and he was the head of the biggest network in the world, and the most powerful man in TV".

Moonves has categorically denied forcing himself onto any of the women. A dozen women have alleged mistreatment, including forced oral sex, groping and retaliation if they resisted him.

"This is an important time in our culture", Gilbert said. When she resisted later advances, she began to be frozen out at the company, she said. Fager declined to comment to the New Yorker on Johansen's allegation. While all four women offered support for Julie Chen, Underwood was passionate about saying she was happy Chen was now free from the weight and burden of the "lies" she has had to carry. He said he had never used his position to hurt the careers of women. In my 40 years of work, I have never before heard of such disturbing accusations.

"Well generally, yes. I say generally because I don't know how old these allegations are", Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told FOX Business' Stuart Varney on Monday.
