The Post spoke with family members and employees of the Charlie Rose show, including the executive producer, Yvette Vega.

In a lengthy statement in response to the expose, Rose did not deny all of the allegations being made by the women but said that he did not believe all of his accusers were "accurate" in heir description of his offenses.

Rose said that he has behaved insensitively at times "and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate". The 75-year old Rose is also a co-host of "CBS This Morning" and a contributing correspondent for "60 Minutes".

"I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realise I was mistaken", he added. I am greatly embarrassed.

In a statement to EW, a PBS spokesperson said, "PBS was shocked to learn today of these deeply disturbing allegations".

Eight women have accused Rose of making unwanted sexual advances toward them, the Washington Post reported yesterday test sexual harassment allegations made against a prominent American man.

One of Rose's former assistants in the mid-2000s, Kyle Godfrey-Ryan, told the Post about at least a dozen times when she would be working out of one of Rose's New York City homes and he would appear naked in front of her.

CBS News also announced Rose would be suspended from their network after news of the allegations broke.

Earlier this month, the Post broke the news that Moore, candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Alabama, allegedly harassed and assaulted teenagers while a district attorney.

Two hours after the Post story went online, one of its authors, Amy Brittain, tweeted that "sadly, my inbox is already flooded with women who have had similar, disturbing encounters with Charlie Rose".
