The piece by Ronan Farrow concludes by detailing the situation at 60 Minutes, where there was what one producer describes as “a very toxic culture toward women.”
Farrow also publishes new allegations against the executive producer of 60 Minutes, Jeff Fager, who was previously the chairman of CBS news from 2011-2015.
According to six former employees, Fager would touch women inappropriately at company parties.
Others alleged that Fager shielded men beneath him who were accused of misconduct and even promoted them into leadership roles.
Said one former employee: “Fager seemed to encourage that climate. It wasn’t even that he turned a blind eye toward it.”
“A lot of my memories of ‘60 Minutes’ are of other women coming into my office, closing the door, and just breaking down because of working as a woman at CBS,” said another woman who eventually left the network. “Toward the end of my time there, I thought, God, I love the stories, I love the work, but this has to be easier somewhere else.”
