[See NewsBusters for more.] Poor Gayle King. She’s really irritated at having to constantly cover the latest sex harassment and abuse allegations against Charlie Rose, her former colleague and co-host at CBS This Morning. Responding to a Washington Post expose that 27 women have accused Rose over a 30 year period, King whined: “I don't know what to say about this.... I don't know what more we can do to Charlie Rose except a public flogging. He's gone.... I’m sick of handling it.” Speaking of the man who allegedly exposed himself to multiple women, grabbed them and made sexual comments, King still called him a friend: “When the story first broke, I said Charlie was my friend. I still consider him a friend. I know that's probably not the politically correct thing to say at this moment. But I don't believe in abandoning people when they're down.”
