Judge Allows CBS Shareholder Lawsuit Over Leslie Moonves and #MeToo to Proceed
A federal judge in New York has allowed a shareholder lawsuit against CBS Corp. to proceed based on the specificity of statements made by disgraced former chairman-ceo Leslie Moonves at a 2017 Variety conference.

Judge Valerie Caproni of the Southern District of New York on Wednesday dismissed other claims in the securities fraud suit against CBS Corp. that asserted that CBS’ top leaders and board members should have known and acted on rumors of sexual misconduct allegations against Moonves as part of their fiduciary duty to protect the company controlled by Shari Redstone.

But Caproni allowed the suit to proceed based on statements Moonves made about the #MeToo movement and the then-recent firing of “CBS This Morning” host Charlie Rose after numerous women came forward with allegations of misconduct, some of which involved employees of his now-defunct PBS interview series “Charlie Rose.”

Charlie Rose Acknowledges ‘Inappropriate’ Relationships, Flirting With ‘CBS This Morning’ Co-Anchors
Charlie Rose acknowledged that he had “inappropriate” workplace relationships and that he flirted with his “CBS This Morning” co-anchors Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell, according to a deposition that was unsealed on Monday.

In his testimony, which he gave back in November, Rose was asked about the apology he posted on Twitter back in 2017 when accusations of sexual misconduct against him began to surface. When asked about the “inappropriate behavior” he admitted to in his statement, Rose acknowledged in his testimony that he has since considered his “romantic” and “intimate” relationships to be “inappropriate” because “there was power and balance, and you were in some cases the boss and you had a relationship that was defined within the workplace.”

Rose said he was not referring to any specific woman or women he had those relationships with, but he did admit that he flirted with King, O’Donnell, as well as Bianna Golodryga and Chelsea Wei.

’60 Minutes’ Producer Sues CBS For Retaliation Over Her Complaints Of Boss Misconduct

  • Deadline
Cassandra Vinograd, a London-based associate producer with 60 Minutes, has sued CBS Broadcasting for allegedly retaliating against her after she complained about the conduct of her boss.

According to the lawsuit, senior producer Michael Gavshon frequently consumed large amounts of alcohol, berated junior staffers and behaved erratically. On one occasion mentioned in the suit, Gavshon allegedly texted Vinograd a decades-old photograph showing Gavshon and a friend smiling and urinating on a fire. Gavshon followed that text with another message insisting he sent the image to Vinograd by mistake, instead of to his sister, the intended recipient.

Vinograd says that when she informed the human resources department at CBS about Gavshon’s behavior, they responded by ostracizing and punishing her.

CBS did not immediately respond to Deadline’s request for comment.

“CBS remains committed to insulating and protecting powerful men – the ‘talent’ – at the expense of its female employees,” the complaint says.

Michael Bloomberg has made clear he doesn’t care about missing the next Democratic debate, or any that may come after that. Confronting his remaining primary opponents, at least those who meet the DNC’s qualifications, doesn’t seem to mean much when he can use a personal fortune well in excess of $50 billion to buy his way if not into the hearts of Americans, then into our attention spans.
