CBS Board Member Knew of Les Moonves Sexual Assault Allegations

HeadlineDec 05, 2018

An investigation ordered by CBS reveals new details in the long-running sexual abuse committed by disgraced former CEO Les Moonves. The revelations include at least one board member’s knowledge of sexual assault allegations against Moonves, and an employee who was “on call” to perform oral sex. The report also says that a resignation letter was drafted for Moonves by CBS’s head of communications but was never signed. Moonves resigned in September after The New Yorker published an article detailing a slew of previously unreported sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations. Meanwhile, The New York Times is reporting that Moonves destroyed evidence and lied to investigators to protect his reputation and a hefty severance package.
