The journalism schools at Arizona State University and the University of Kentucky have rescinded awards given to Charlie Rose, who was fired by CBS after nearly a dozen women accused him of sexual harassment and assault. The dean of Arizona’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication said, “The actions victimized young women much like those who make up the overwhelming majority of Cronkite students—young women who deserve to enter workplaces that reward them for their hard work, intelligence and creativity and where they do not have to fear for their safety or dignity.”
