Charlie Rose has journalism awards rescinded by universities amid allegations

Charlie Rose has journalism awards rescinded by universities amid allegations

CBS News fired Charlie Rose on Tuesday and PBS also cut ties with him last week.

"This unprecedented action is taken with the utmost seriousness and deliberation", he said, noting it was the first time the award has been taken back since 1984.

Arizona State University's journalism school announced on Friday it was rescinding the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, which Rose received in 2015, and the University of Kansas has made a decision to take back the William Allen White National Citation, reports The New York Times.

"The actions victimized young women much like those who make up the overwhelming majority of Cronkite students - young women who deserve to enter workplaces that reward them for their hard work, intelligence and creativity and where they do not have to fear for their safety or dignity", Callahan said in a statement.

KU's William Allen White Foundation Board of Trustees released a similar statement on Friday, writing: "After recent reports detailed sexual harassment and a pattern of unprofessional behavior by Rose during his career, the William Allen White Foundation decided that Rose does not exemplify the ideals of this award". "We are not in the business of trying to rewrite history". Callahan also noted that they understand the action is largely symbolic, as the award was given in two years ago, but they believe the message it sends to past, current, and future students, as well as all of journalism, is important. It does not come with term limits.

According to the Cronkite School, the award was created over 30 years ago.

After the allegations against Rose surfaced, the foundation's board of trustees voted to revoke the honor.

The Washington Post initially published claims from eight women who either worked or aspired to work for the Charlie Rose show on PBS.

Since then, three other women came forward after an internal investigation at CBS, and a former intern at Charlie Rose stated the newsman forced her to watch an explicit film scene when she delivered mail to his apartment one night.

In his only statement on the issues, Rose pronounced himself "greatly embarrassed".
