Story alleges a darker side of'60 Minutes

CBS News said Wednesday that 60 Minutes Executive Producer Jeff Fager would be leaving the company, following allegations he had sexually harassed employees.

Moonves - once considered among the most powerful and well-compensated media executives - resigned as chief of CBS on Sunday evening in light of a second New Yorker article detailing allegations of sexual assault, harassment and intimidation. Late a year ago, former "CBS This Morning" host Charlie Rose was sacked after more than 2 dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct. In a statement of his own, Fager said the termination was over a text message: "The company's decision had nothing to do with the false allegations printed in The New Yorker". My language was harsh and, despite the fact that journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it. The investigations into CBS and CBS News, one of which started after allegations against Charlie Rose surfaced and another after reports on Moonves, will continue. He initially resisted, but relented after CBS warned that he was contractually obligated to cooperate fully in any investigation.

Now the reporter who received the message has revealed its contents. "One such note should not result in termination after 36 years, but it did", he said.

It was then noted: 'However, he violated company policy and it is our commitment to uphold those policies at every level'. In 2011 he was named the first ever chairman of CBS News, launching the current iteration of "CBS This Morning" during his tenure.

Veteran "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft called Fager's message to Duncan threatening and inappropriate. He admitted that he was trying to secure the woman's silence by finding her work at CBS, according to a director and two others familiar with what Mr. Moonves said.

In a new story on Sunday, Farrow cited a former intern who said that Fager once groped her at an office function and described the culture as "sexist" and a "boy's club". "60 Minutes" is one of the most revered programs in television news.

"Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace - a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work", Rhodes said in a memo a year ago.
