Pressed on CBS Sex Scandal, Woodward Touts His Books, Friends at Network

17 views

[See NewsBusters for more.] Welcome to the Bob Woodward filibuster. The veteran journalist appeared on CBS This Morning, Thursday, and was quizzed about the network’s evolving sex scandal. But rather than talk about this difficult subject, Woodward first responded, in an answer that lasted 1 minute and 40 seconds, by talking about his books and friends at the network. CBS’s former CEO (Les Moonves), the co-host of This Morning (Charlie Rose), and the executive producer of 60 Minutes (Jeff Fager)  have all been forced out due to allegations of sex abuse, harassment or inappropriate treatment of women. This Morning co-host Norah O’Donnell noted the awkwardness for Woodward: “I know this book is with Simon and Schuster. It's a division of CBS, and you’ve had a number of your books featured on 60 Minutes. What do you make of what's happening here?”
