CBS This Morning reacts to Charlie Rose’s sex harassment allegations, Gayle King says “I really am still reeling”

  • Co-hosts Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell wasted no time addressing their colleague’s scandal at the top of this morning’s broadcast.  “I really am still reeling. I got an hour and 42 minutes of sleep last night,” said King. “I am not okay. After reading that article in the (Washington) Post, it was deeply disturbing, troubling and painful for me to read.” O’Donnell added: “This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women. Let me be very clear. There is no excuse for this alleged behavior. It is systematic and pervasive and I've been doing a lot of listening." O’Donnell emphasized that just because Rose is their colleague, CBS News will continue to cover any further reporting on his alleged misdeeds. “That said,” added King. “I think we need to make this matter to women, the women who have spoken up, the women who have not spoken up because they are afraid, I am hoping that now they will take the step to speak up too.”
