King went on to say that she has "great respect" for the male managers mentioned in the Post's report, and that she doesn't know "what more we could do to Charlie Rose - except a public flogging".

The Washington Post published a new investigation on Thursday into how CBS News is handling the situation, and found that of the 27 women with accusations against Rose, 14 of them are CBS News employees, while 13 worked with Rose elsewhere.

The first instance involved Annmarie Parr, then a 22-year-old news clerk, who said Rose made "lewd" comments to her when he was a fill-in anchor on "CBS Morning News" in 1986. Joanna Matthias, who worked alongside Rose at NBC News in 1976, revealed how he exposed his penis to her while also touching her breasts without permission.

The women say he engaged in a variety of harassing behaviors, from comments to unwanted advances to sexual touching.

CBS News alleges that it had no HR complaints about Rose - and that it could not "corroborate or confirm" numerous situations described in the report. Back in November previous year, Rose has issued an apology but denied the accuracy of certain claims.

In response to the allegations, Rose sent the following statement to the Post: "Your story is unfair and inaccurate". Charlie Rose did not respond to request for comment from CNN.

'I don't know what to say about this. I feel sick to my stomach, ' said an emotional King on CBS This Morning. In it he said how the network responds to complaints about sexual harassment has been a "significant focus" for the network this year.

Harris said that after she took a job on Rose's PBS show, his behavior started to make her more uncomfortable. On the plane, she said, he insisted she drink wine and began to "paw" her. A woman accused Rose of forcibly kissing her at a party.

One of the plaintiffs, Beth Homan-Ross, who worked directly with Rose as an assistant producer, told the Post that Rose frequently made sexual remarks about her breasts and buttocks. She said she declined, waiting outside.

"She looked me dead in the eyes and said, 'You are going to be working alone with this man and being alone with this man in his hotel, and you need to think really hard about whether you want to do this, ' " MacArthur said, declining to name the executive but heeding that advice.

The manager, Chris Licht, who now heads the "Late Show With Stephen Colbert", confirmed the exchange in an email to the Post and said he talked to Rose about the incident.

"It was a sexual land mine everywhere you stepped", she said of the work environment.

Rose's fallout was brought on by eight women who came forward with claims that Rose had either sexually assaulted them by groping their bodies, or had displayed sexually inappropriate behavior.

Rumors about the Post's investigation have been roiling CBS News for months.

"Since we terminated Charlie Rose, we've worked to strengthen existing systems to ensure a safe environment where everyone can do their best work", the spokesperson said. "We are not done with this process". Rose was also ousted from his co-anchor role at "CBS This Morning".
