'60 Minutes' chief Fager out at CBS

'60 Minutes' executive producer Jeff Fager out at CBS

CBS says '60 Minutes' exec Jeff Fager out for violating company policy

"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.

He added: 'One such note should not result in termination after 36 years, but it did'.

Perhaps not, but it's impossible to isolate these two things: Duncan received this message of arrogance and entitlement - indeed, a threat - because she wanted to know whether Fager really did view company functions as feel-copping expeditions. According to her, Moonves killed her career. Chen began, making no opening reference to her absence from CBS this week until tonight's episode, or that her The Talk colleagues had dining on her family drama on Monday and Tuesday's episodes, or that Sharon Osbourne had observed of Chen's husband on national TV, "obviously the man has a problem". I love her. I support her always.

"They terminated my contract early because I sent a text message to one of our own CBS reporters demanding that she be fair in covering the story".

Philippines starts evacuations along coast as Super Typhoon Mangkhut nears
Typhoon Mangkhut is expected to bring heavy rains and flooding along the northern coastal provinces of Cagayan and Batanes. Mangkhut has already passed over Guam where power outages and torrential wind and rain impacted the small island.

"It's unfortunate", Kroft said, "and everything about this situation saddens me". There's also some anger and apprehension.

"60 Minutes" is the most popular and powerful news broadcast on television, and Fager is only the second person to lead it during its 50 years of history. With Fager out, they are anxious about its future. CBS News released a statement vaguely explaining why they parted ways with him after decades with 60 Minutes. "Bill Owens, who has served as executive editor at 60 Minutes since 2008, will manage the team during the search for a replacement".

And Rhodes pointedly invoked the name of the company's new acting CEO, Joe Ianniello.

Sarah Johansen said that when she was an intern Fager allegedly groped her buttocks at a party, and she was later told this move was referred to as the 'Fager arm'.

In July, after Farrow's first New Yorker expose, Chen issued a defiant statement, saying, "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the late '90s, and I have been married to him for nearly 14 years".

If the information in her editorial checks out (and it does align with other accusations against Moonves), there are probably a lot of other women out there who would like to do the same. Farrow's follow-up story, published on Sunday, also included a new allegation against Fager.

In the op-ed, Bloodworth Thomason mentions an incident involving Moonves and "a famous actress" that took place in the CBS dining room. By the end of the day on Sunday, he was officially out as CEO.
