‘60 MinutesÂ’ Producer Heads for the Exit

Jeff Fager, executive producer of 60 Minutes, is leaving CBS amid accusations of inappropriate touching.

But that's not the whole story: Fager was named in the recent New Yorker exposé accusing (now former) CBS chief exec Les Moonves of sexual misconduct. Six former CBS employees claimed Fager touched them in a way that made them uncomfortable, and one alleged he groped her at a work party, accusations emblematic of a broader company culture problem at CBS...

But, Fager denied that claim. According to him, CBS terminated his contract because of a "harsh" text he sent a CBS reporter covering the Moonves story.

  • CBS News said Fager "violated company policy and it is [their] commitment to uphold those policies at every level," but didn't elaborate.

Zoom out: Still unconvinced of the #MeToo movement's influence? Just take a look at CBS.

      Eight women, who were either employees or aspired to work for Rose at the “Charlie Rose” show, told The Post that he made unwanted sexual advances to them between the late 1990s and 2011.
      Those advances included lewd phone calls, walking around naked in their presence, or groping their breasts, buttocks or genital areas, the women said.
      In a statement provided to The Post on Monday — and later posted on social media — Rose said: “I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior. I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken.”
