CBS Announces Les Moonves Departure


CBS says CEO Les Moonves is leaving  the company following accusations of sexual misconduct.  So far, 12  women have accused Moonves of misconduct, with six of the 12 claims  coming to light today.  In a New Yorker article published this morning,  the women claimed Moonves exposed himself to them, was physically  violent and threatened to hurt their careers.  As part of a deal that  brought about his exit, Moonves and CBS will donate 20-million-dollars  towards the #MeToo movement.  COO Joseph Ianniello will serve as  president and acting CEO until a permanent successor is selected.
