CBS News on Wednesday fired "60 Minutes" top executive Jeff Fager, who has been under investigation following reports that he groped women at parties and tolerated an abusive workplace.
Despite allegations of misconduct first reported by The New Yorker, Rhodes said Wednesday's action was "not directly related to the allegations" that surfaced in those press reports, but rather because Fager, who has worked for CBS for more than 35 years, "violated company policy".
In a statement to CBS News, Fager said his contract was terminated "for a harsh text I sent to a CBS employee". "Similar frustrations about perceived inaction have prompted another woman to raise a claim of misconduct against Jeff Fager".
Across various news outlets, including New Yorker and Washington Post, more than a dozen current and former employees had claimed Fager, division chair from 2011-2015 and 60 Minutes EP for the past 14 seasons, condoned harassment in the division. "My language was harsh and, despite the fact that all journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it".
Six former employees told The New Yorker that Fager would touch employees inappropriately while inebriated at company events, including an incident in which Fager allegedly commented on an associate producer's breasts and then became "belligerent" when she refused his drunken advances.
He ended, "One such note should not result in termination after 36 years, but it did". CBS Evening News addressed his firing in a report that included a show of support from anchor Jeff Glor.
