The CBS board of directors only announced today that it will select outside counsel to investigate allegations that Moonves sexually harassed six women. As The New York Times points out, "the lack of immediate consequences for Mr. Moonves was striking at a time when some media companies have taken swift action against prominent employees who have been accused of misconduct. CBS fired the anchor Charlie Rose a day after allegations were made against him, and NBC acted quickly to fire Matt Lauer of Today after he, too, was accused of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment." Meanwhile, Moonves' alma mater Bucknell University removed all references to the CBS CEO from its website. ALSO: Here are potential Les Moonves replacements.
