— What you might have missed in the fallout from CBS News CEO Leslie Moonves’ resignation and the sexual harassment allegations that followed are some of the details that have emerged from the company and the people who worked there.
Here are some highlights.
Moonves: “I am sorry.”
CBS News President Leslie Moones says he was “shocked and disappointed” by the sexual misconduct allegations that have come out against him and his former deputy chief of staff, David Binder.
“I have no doubt in my mind that I was wrong and that the people in my position did not behave in a manner consistent with the highest ethical standards,” Moonves said in a statement.
CBS News hired two new female employees in early 2018.
One was hired after the resignations and firing of Moonves, and the other was hired during the fallout.
CBS has hired a sexual harassment consultant to help with the investigation.
CBS did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the hire.
Moonve has been under intense scrutiny since a New York Times story in October described his actions as a pattern of inappropriate behavior toward women.
CBS declined to comment to the Times, citing the ongoing investigation.
Moonis said in his resignation letter that he “deeply regrets” the actions he took and that he is “looking forward to a fresh start.”
CBS says it hired a new sexual harassment expert in early October.
Moonvers resignation also comes after an investigation found he misused $500,000 in government funds to pay off an ex-girlfriend, who said she was fired because she alleged sexual harassment by Moonves.
Moonvens resignation came after he resigned as chairman of the board at CBS Interactive, where Moonves was the chairman.
CBS Interactive is a division of CBS Corp. 7.
CBS’ new chief of security is an ex Army officer who was previously the head of the San Antonio Police Department.
The New York Post reported Tuesday that the former chief of the department was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated identity theft.
CBS hired a former U.S. intelligence analyst who was convicted in 2011 of spying for Iran.
The FBI says it believes the spy, who worked in the National Security Agency, may have been responsible for passing sensitive intelligence to Iran.
Moonvis’ resignation was announced as CBS has begun an internal review of its culture.
Moonviks resignation comes as CBS continues to face scrutiny over sexual harassment and assault allegations against its top executives.
The network has denied the allegations.
Moonvin says he will step down from his board role at CBS after “the completion of this internal review.”
He said in the resignation letter he is committed to the CBS family and to CBS employees and to “the CBS mission.”
Moonving said in an interview with the Associated Press that he had “zero tolerance for any form of sexual misconduct and will continue to do so in the years ahead.”
CBS CEO Leslie A. Moonvises resignation was first reported by the Associated New York newspaper.
The AP says it obtained a copy of Moonvis resignation letter, which Moonves did not read to the press.
The letter was not shared with CBS executives, according to the AP.
The Associated Press says the resignation was not immediately announced to the media.
Moonvs resignation comes after CBS was accused of covering up a sexual assault in which a woman accused her then-boss, a former CBS News producer, of sexual assault.
The woman, who was hired to work for Moonves as a producer, said in her complaint that Moonves sexually harassed her in the workplace in 2014.
Moonveris accuser told the AP in her letter that the network failed to act on the allegation against her boss.
Moonvoices resignation comes at a time of intense scrutiny of the media, and Moonves has been criticized for his handling of the allegations against CBS and the New York Police Department in the wake of a New Yorker investigation of police brutality.
The Times reports that the Times received a memo from an unnamed source that outlined allegations that Moonvits “aggressive and persistent approach” to women who worked for him.
The memo says Moonves tried to recruit the woman and her friend into his private security team.
The report says the woman was fired and the friend later quit his job after a “hostile work environment.”
The Times reported that CBS has not responded to the allegations and has not yet commented on the memo.
Moonvest said in June 2018 that he would be resigning as CBS CEO and that it was a “time for change.”
He resigned after an internal investigation found that he mismanaged money from the CBS News Foundation.
Moonved said in January 2018 that “there is no longer any room for silence in our company.” He
