Jeff Fager Leaving CBS Amid Sexual Misconduct Accusations

039;60 Minutes' executive producer Jeff Fager exits CBS News

While she did not directly address her absence or what has been happening at CBS-where Moonves' exit was followed by the executive producer of 60 Minutes being fired yesterday-saying her husband's last name seemed to be a clear sign of support for him.

Despite allegations of misconduct first reported by The New Yorker, Rhodes said Wednesday's action was "not directly related to the allegations" that surfaced in those press reports, but rather because Fager, who has worked for CBS for more than 35 years, "violated company policy".

Fager was let go Wednesday amid growing pressure from sexual harassment allegations from multiple women as reporter by Ronan Farrow in the New Yorker.

Perhaps not, but it's impossible to isolate these two things: Duncan received this message of arrogance and entitlement - indeed, a threat - because she wanted to know whether Fager really did view company functions as feel-copping expeditions. Murder, She Wrote was canceled in 1996, when Lansbury was 70 years old.

"I don't care if 30 more women come forward and allege this kind of stuff", Arnold Kopelson reportedly said in a meeting at the time. Bill Owens will manage the 60 Minutes team as Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews and I begin the search for a new executive producer of the program.

In the first New Yorker report, former colleagues also accused Mr Fager of inappropriate touching, and of protecting men accused of sexual misconduct. Fager denied both stories.

Farrow also cited "nineteen current and former employees" who said Fager "allowed harassment in the division".

The text message from Fager represents an attempt to pull rank and intimidate a reporter, something that surely happens to investigative reporters all the time at CBS News. "Instead of reporting the situation, Mr. Moonves was in the process of trying to find the woman a job at CBS in order to gain her continued silence".

Moonves was the CEO of CBS until this week, when he was sacked following a second New Yorker report containing some serious allegations of sexual misconduct.

"60 Minutes" is the most popular and powerful news broadcast on television, and Fager is only the second person to lead it during its 50 years of history. "Be careful", the message said, according to Duncan.

"This is an outrageous claim and it didn't happen", Fager said in response.

In July, after Farrow's first New Yorker expose, Chen issued a defiant statement, saying, "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years".

CBS Corporation announced Moonves' exit on Sunday. CEO Leslie Moonves on Sunday. Rose had been a co-anchor since 2012 on "CBS This Morning" and a contributing correspondent on "60 Minutes".

His departure is effective immediately, the company said in a tweet.
