Colbert on Moonves: 'Accountability is meaningless, unless it's for everybody'

Moonves, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by six women., has faced calls from Me Too activists to step aside.

Farrow's report detailed an assortment of claims against Moonves, but it was unclear if the unidentified woman who went to police also had spoken to The New Yorker.

The list of people this news does not sit well with is vast and varied, and as of Monday night, it also includes CBS employee Stephen Colbert. The board on Friday said it would initiate an investigation into the allegations made about Moonves and the culture of CBS...

Moonves, who transformed CBS into a ratings victor after joining the network in 1995, is one of the most powerful American men implicated in the #MeToo era that ignited past year after the career implosion of Harvey Weinstein.

At a three-hour board meeting on Monday, the CBS directors did not even vote on whether to suspend their longtime chief executive pending the investigation, Variety reported on Tuesday. "Those were mistakes, and I regret them immensely", Moonves said in a statement.

"I heard there was an article about CBS chairman and Man I Hope Is Not Watching My Show Tonight, Les Moonves", Colbert said, kicking off his first monologue of the week.

"But I always understood and respected-and abided by the principle-that "no" means 'no, ' and I have never misused my position to harm or hinder anyone's career", Moonves said.

But the accusations against him have to be taken seriously, Colbert said. "We are seeing vigorous discourse in our country about equality, inclusion, and safety in the workplace, and CBS is committed to being part of the solution to those important issues". Redstone advocated a merger to help boost flagging Viacom, and wanted Moonves to run the combined company.
