Six Accuse Moonves Of Sexual Harassment

An article posted by the New Yorker this evening alleges in sometimes graphic language that Moonves sexually harassed six women between the 1980s and the late aughts. Four describe forcible touching or kissing during business meetings, in what they said appeared to be a practiced routine. Two told reporter Ronan Farrow that Moonves physically intimidated them or threatened to derail their careers. After the Hollywood Reporter earlier today reported that the New Yorker planned to publish such an article, CBS released a statement saying independent board directors were investigating the charges and CBS stock began falling. It was down 6% as 6:30 p.m. ET.
