More women accuse Les Moonves of sex harassment and assault

More women accuse Les Moonves of sex harassment and assault

Despite the charges, Moonves remained in charge while CBS, where he's been for 23 years, launched an in-house investigation. Later, she claims, Moonves grabbed her and threw her against the wall over a misunderstanding over an unsent memo.

The report published Sunday by the New Yorker includes allegations against the CBS Corp. chairman-CEO from six women who say they had disturbing encounters with Moonves, with some claims going back to the 1980s through the early 2000s. Writer Janet Jones, who alleged that Moonves forcibly kissed her at a work meeting and that she had to shove him away, said Moonves "has gotten away with it for decades".

One of the women filed a complaint late a year ago with the Los Angeles Police Department but prosecutors declined to pursue charges because the statute of limitations had expired, the New Yorker reported, citing law-enforcement officials it didn't name. He reiterated that he never abused his power and said he can only surmise that the allegations "are surfacing now for the first time, decades later, as part of a concerted effort by others to destroy my name, my reputation and my career".

CBS, as you sit in a room debating next steps to rectify the damage done, remember that the world is watching. "The actions described in this article are those of sexual assault and shame on anyone else in the corporation who knew about his crimes".

While the law firms have been investigating, Moonves has been "allowed to stay and continue to run the company", a different outcome than many other "Me Too" cases, Farrow noted. "Our Board of Directors is conducting a thorough investigation of these matters, which is ongoing", CBS said in a statement.

But now Activision has gone the extra mile, introducing an official trailer for the mode right before the beta goes live. You can see a lot of vehicle-based action, including gun battles between squads riding trucks and helicopters.

First reported by CNN's Brian Stetler on Sunday morning, Moonves' official announcement should come Sunday night or Monday morning, according to sources. Reports indicate he has been in negotiations for a severance package for the past several days, with some sources saying the amount could near $100 million.

Considering the breadth and depth of these allegations... it's about time. Last month, Moonves hired prominent litigator Petrocelli to represent him in connection with CBS' internal probe.

Moonves gave the The New Yorker a statement strongly denying any wrongdoing and his wife Julie Chen has been defending her husband.

That's the SECOND set of sexual misconduct allegations levied against Moonves in the previous year; now, it appears that what had been a lengthy discussion about how to remove him will turn into a quick and decisive exit.
