“There are a lot of executives looking around corners, hoping they’re not named in the story,” an industry insider told us. “[CBS is] trying to suppress [the story] by using the NDAs.” Meanwhile, said the source, “Jeff, Ryan and David are all waiting for the other shoe to drop.”

Kadro oversaw Rose — who was fired in November 2017 after the Washington Post reported that eight women alleged he had sexually harassed them — while Fager was Rose’s boss at “60 Minutes” and Licht hired Rose to co-anchor “CBS This Morning.”

“A lot of people have NDAs, and CBS [execs] have told staff who they believe have spoken to the Washington Post that they’ll enforce them,” said another network source.

NDA’s? Looks like the FBI should knock down their doors and raid the offices. Oh wait, they are a protected class.

The Donald is making a lot of people pay for them going after him in the run up to the 2016 election. And it feels DAMN GOOD.

What else do we need to know about Charlie that is not already known? We don’t need ‘blow by blow’ transcripts.
At least I don’t.

I sort of feel sorry for Charlie in a way. He was on top, status-wise for decades. I think Charlie became famous shortly after Tom Snyder’s show went off the air.
