Jeff Fager Was Fired After Sending Warning Text to CBS News Reporter

A CBS News reporter working on a story about Fager revealed that he had sent her a text message urging her to "be careful".

ABC is rolling out the red carpet - or at least hanging up the red drapes - for the Designing Women.

"If you repeat these false accusations without any of your own reporting to back them up you will be responsible for harming me", Fager wrote, per Duncan.

Sports and politics have become more intertwined than ever before, as evidenced by the whole Serena Williams saga. Ramos, who is from Portugal , spoke briefly to Portuguese newspaper Tribuna Expresso this week.


"I don't care if 30 more women come forward and allege this kind of stuff", Arnold Kopelson reportedly said in a meeting at the time. "I thank everyone here for their support". Rose had been a co-anchor since 2012 on "CBS This Morning" and a contributing correspondent on "60 Minutes". "Since Jeff Fager publicly referred to our exchange today, I want to be transparent about it. This whole situation saddens me deeply". The article said 19 current and former employees said Fager enabled a culture that "shielded bad behavior".

As Kroft's remark suggests, there is a palpable sense of sadness within CBS News. The programme 60 Minutes, which airs on Sunday evenings, was first broadcast in 1968. With Fager out, they are anxious about its future.

Jeff Fager of the show "60 Minutes Sports" speaks on stage during the Showtime panel presentation of the 2013 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour in Pasadena, California January 12, 2013. "Bill Owens, who has served as executive editor at 60 Minutes since 2008, will manage the team during the search for a replacement".

In July, six former CBS News employees told The New Yorker that Fager "would touch employees in ways that made them uncomfortable" after drinking at office parties. Back in August, the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow had reported that Fager had touched women inappropriately at company functions, not to mention allowed an abusive senior producer to run amok - reporting that this blog expanded.

In the same story, Farrow published the initial allegations of harassment and assault by Moonves. Why not roll this violation into the investigations of management practices being conducted by two prominent law firms?

Duncan said she was "shocked" when she received the text, saying it put her in an extremely compromising position as she looked into allegations of sexual misconduct against Fager. It was then decided that the former CEO's evasiveness meant he could be terminated with cause, and in the end Moonves left the network without a dime. Moonves has left his post but is now staying on in an advisory role while outside law firms investigate the accusations brought by 12 different women against him.
