Moonves Scandal May Pave the Way for CBS-Viacom Merger

United States television giant CBS announced Monday that it would select outside lawyers to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct lodged against CEO Leslie Moonves but declined to take further immediate action on his fate. In a situation like this, I'd normally call Les.

In a stunning expose for The New Yorker, Ronan Farrow detailed six women who've accused Moonves of sexual misconduct dating back more than 20 years, as well as an alleged culture of complicity at his network. "I recognize that there were times decades ago when I may have made some women uncomfortable by making advances", he said.

On Friday, she tweeted that her husband is a "kind, decent and moral human being" and she "fully supported" him.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office declined to pursue sexual assault charges against CBS chief Les Moonves in February, according to an NBC report released on Tuesday.

In potentially stunning and heavily redacted filing in DE that was unsealed this morning, Moonves, CBS COO Joe Ianniello and others are accused of using the self-destructing messaging app TigerText to communicate and "the systematic deletion of highly relevant documents...over a two year period". "And I get that there should be levels of response". Cause there's a JFK quote that I like and I cite a fair amount on this show: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable".

In addition to the man who is in custody, authorities are still looking for a second man and a woman in connection with the theft. They then ducked into a filter room and emptied out a bleach bucket, into which they deposited the shark, the aquarium said.

Others shaded Chen and the other Talk co-hosting panel, which includes Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne, for being "hypocritical" after being outspoken supporters of women who've suffered abuse in the workplace.

The second alleged incident happened nearly two years later in 1988, with the unknown woman telling police that she was assaulted by Moonves on New Year's Day. So we shouldn't be surprised that when the change comes, it comes radically. When she rebuffed his advance and asked what he was doing, he replied, "Well, I was hitting on you". This roar is a natural backlash to all that silence. He stood behind this show while we were struggling to find our voice.

Julie added, "And I will stand by that statement today, tomorrow, forever".

Mr Moonves joined the network in 1995 and earned $69.3m (£53m) past year, making him one of the highest paid chief executives in the world.
