“I’m Julie Chen Moonves” Chen Says On ‘Big Brother’ In First CBS Appearance Since Husband’s Ouster
CBS "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager says he's leaving the company, after being named in recent stories that accused him of fostering an abusive workplace.
CBS News president David Rhodes announced Wednesday that Fager was leaving the company effective immediately, saying he had violated company policy.
Duncan, who has been tasked with reporting on both Fager and Moonves for CBS News these past few days, then went one step further and revealed the exchange that led to Fager's exit.
A New Yorkerreport claims that 19 current and former employees said that after drinking at office parties, Fager touched employees in ways that made them feel "uncomfortable" and that he promoted an environment that "shielded bad behavior" - allegations Fager denies.
'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'. He acknowledged that his language in the text was "harsh", but said that "although journalists received harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS didn't like it".
On Sunday, Les Monves (right) resigned as CEO of CBS for a string of sexual misconduct allegations. He initially resisted, but relented after CBS warned that he was contractually obligated to cooperate fully in any investigation.
In Rhodes' memo to staffers on Wednesday, he said, "This action today is not directly related to the allegations surfaced in press reports, which continue to be investigated independently". However, he violated company policy and it is our commitment to uphold those policies at every level.
At the end of Duncan's report, anchor Jeff Glor said to her, "That message was unacceptable". Rhodes was then brought in as news president, taking over full management of the news division when Fager went back to exclusively running "60 Minutes". "Similar frustrations about perceived inaction have prompted another woman to raise a claim of misconduct against Jeff Fager". The latest allegation against Fager comes from Sarah Johansen, a former CBS intern, who told Farrow that the "60 Minutes" executive producer groped her at a work party.
The 36-year CBS veteran has been at the center of allegations that CBS's news division fostered a culture of harassment. "60 Minutes" is, as Rhodes notes in his memo, "the most significant news broadcast on television", having debuted in 1968 and served as the investigative home for such television inquisitors as Mike Wallace, Morley Safer, Ed Bradley and Lesley Stahl.
