Les Moonves Poised to Step Down as CBS CEO Following Second Wave of Sexual Assault Allegations

.....Six more women have accused CBS executive Les Moonves of sexual assault, according to a second bombshell report by Ronan Farrow. The accusations come as the CEO is expected to leave the network with an exit package valued upwards of $100 million.

The New Yorker piece, which was first published on Sunday, includes six additional incidents that allegedly took place between the 1980s and 2000s. Among them are accusations made by veteran television executive Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb, who worked with Moonves at Lorimar in the late 1980s. She accuses him of physically restraining her, forcing her to perform oral sex on him, exposing himself to her and throwing her up against a wall. Golden-Gottlieb filed a criminal complaint with the Los Angeles Police Department back in 2017; law enforcement sources told Farrow that the claims were credible, and Moonves reportedly informed select members of the CBS board months later.

Another accuser, writer Jessica Pallingston, worked as Moonves’ assistant back in 1994. She alleges that she was coerced into performing oral sex on him on her first day. He went on to become verbally abusive after she rejected subsequent advances.

Moonves has released a statement to The New Yorker, in which he acknowledges three of the encounters. He claims each encounter was consensual, without specifying any names:

The appalling accusations in this article are untrue. What is true is that I had consensual relations with three of the women some 25 years ago before I came to CBS. And I have never used my position to hinder the advancement or careers of women. In my 40 years of work, I have never before heard of such disturbing accusations. I can only surmise they 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. Anyone who knows me knows that the person described in this article is not me.



this 2nd article details far worse allegations.......approaching 'Harvey Weinstein' level.......?!

Well, that's it. He's appalled and they are out to get him (finally, for some reason).

Waiting for our resident skeptics here to automatically "see his side" of it and thereby identify the greater threat to men everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, as a woman I am not against punishments and exposure of these crimes. However, I am getting sick of constant headlines about them. I wish there was someone I didn't have to relive the ire and embarassment of these women. day after day. Just take the bastards silently off to a desert island to live with no golden parachutes to live like kings on the rest of their lives.

If these are constant headlines then you’re actually not for punishment and exposure.

Choose, and be honest.

I'm not for punishment and exposure. I'm for 1. Acknowledgement 2. Apology. 3. Atonement. I'm also for law and order, protecting/serving the vulnerable with incarceration as the last resort.

The evidence shows that most of these men would never provide items 1, 2, nor 3. Realistically, items 4 and 5 remain viable.

It would be so much better if they did. I'm certainly nobody's angel so I know how powerful it can be to take responsibility for your actions. To restore a soul by humbling myself to their pain that I've caused them. To grow from it and be better moving forward. To be forgiven and have my own soul restored. Maybe in a world where everybody gets to chime in we need to create the space to negotiate these things.

Not that, but this, so far at least.

“... CBS will donate $20 million of Moonves’ potential severance to one or more organizations that support the #MeToo movement and gender equality in the workplace. (Moonves will not receive any severance benefits at this time, other than certain fully accrued and vested compensation/benefits. Any payments to be made in the future will depend upon the results of an independent investigation into the allegations made against Moonves.)”
