CBS says '60 Minutes' exec Jeff Fager out for violating company policy
14 September, 2018, 05:35
The directors began changing their minds about their chairman a month ago, after a news report revealed that a woman had previously reported the TV titan to police for forcing her to perform oral sex - and he then admitted he was trying to get another accuser a job at CBS to keep her quiet, the New York Times reports.
In response, Fager told CBS in a statement that, after 36 years, he was sacked for a "harsh text" that he sent to another CBS reporter.
Veteran "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft called Fager's message to Duncan threatening and inappropriate.
When asked if she took it as a threat, Duncan answered "I did". On Tuesday, The Talk co-hosts sounded off over the news that CBS may remain silent on its investigation into Moonves - and the culture at the network - before the recent shakeup.

What the New York Jets displayed on defense and special teams may have been even more encouraging for Darnold and his teammates. Coming off two straight 5-11 losing seasons isn't easy for the Jets but they are slowly building a contender for the future.
Asked on "CBS This Morning" whether she felt threatened by the message, Duncan said, "I did, and it's even hard to say that today".
"My language was harsh and, despite the fact that journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it", he said. Late previous year, former "CBS This Morning" host Charlie Rose was sacked after more than 2 dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct. They remained in their positions while law firms hired by CBS investigated the allegations. In August, he denied the allegations, telling The New Yorker that his accusers were "using an important movement as a weapon", apparently referencing the "Me Too" movement. Les Moonves was forced into resignation from his longtime post as president of the network as a result of the damning allegations of sexual misconduct.
Following her report, evening news anchor Jeff Glor told Duncan that Fager's message was "unacceptable", and that everyone at the broadcast supported her.
News broke Wednesday afternoon that CBS terminated Fager's contract early because he had "violated company policy". She also claims that Fager told her to apologize to the other producer to "mitigate conflict in the office". He returned as full-time executive producer at "60 Minutes" in 2015, and this fall would have marked his 15th as chief of the news magazine program.
