  • '60 Minutes' executive producer Jeff Fager out at CBS

"However, he violated company policy and it is our commitment to uphold those policies at every level", wrote Rhodes in a note to staff.

"This action today is not".

"There are people who lost their jobs trying to harm me and if you pass on these damaging claims without your own reporting to back them up that will become a serious problem", Fager wrote, according to Duncan.

Rhodes said Fager violated company policy but did not specify the policy. It came only three days after CBS Corp. She also created the Burt Reynolds comedy, Evening Shade, and was an early writer for the CBS sitcoms M*A*S*H, Rhoda, and One Day at a Time.

In the first New Yorker report, former colleagues also accused Mr Fager of inappropriate touching, and of protecting men accused of sexual misconduct.

Previously, playing online was free, but once Switch Online debuts, everyone will need to pay to play online. A year and a half after launching, the Nintendo Switch is finally getting an official online service.

Duncan tweeted later Wednesday that the text message was sent to her.

In a statement, Moonves said, "Untrue allegations from decades ago are now being made against me that are not consistent with who I am".

In a new story on Sunday, Farrow cited a former intern who said that Fager once groped her at an office function and described the culture as "sexist" and a "boy's club". In the end, she questioned why Moonves wouldn't just tell her that he had no intention of ever putting one of her shows on his network instead of just keeping her "hopping and hoping".

"Over the years, even when an actress managed to get one of my scripts through an agent, the deal would immediately be killed".

His second-in-command, Bill Owens, has been put in charge temporarily.

The hurricane's impacts could range from a strong storm surge to flooding from torrential rainfall and hurricane-force winds. The storm was located roughly 1,170 miles east-southeast of the Cape Fear region, and remained a unsafe Category 4 storm .

A representative for Fager said he had no further comment on Wednesday night.

In a statement to CNN, Fager said his axing "had nothing to do with the false allegations printed in The New Yorker".

"Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace - a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work", Rhodes said in a memo previous year. Moonves has left his post but is now staying on in an advisory role while outside law firms investigate the accusations brought by 12 different women against him.

Original series creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason and executive producer Harry Thomason are behind the new multi-cam series, which will "follow the next generation of Sugarbakers with a crop of new, young, female designers at an Atlanta interior design firm". In November, the company fired longtime TV personality Charlie Rose over allegations of harassment.
