Charlie Rose was a lousy, biased left-stream reporter and that made him a good candidate for ASU’s Walter Cronkite Award. Finally the Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication recognized what an embarrassment Rose is to journalism and it’s taking back the award it gave to Rose two years. Variety reports:
TV journalist and talk show host Rose has been accused of sexually harassing several women and was fired by CBS. He apologized for ” inappropriate behavior” but said “I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate.”
“The Cronkite School is rescinding the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism given to Charlie Rose in 2015,” the statement read.
“This unprecedented action is taken with the utmost seriousness and deliberation. We are not in the business of trying to rewrite history.
“When new information about a recipient surfaces, the question we ask is not whether the award would be given again with a new set of facts, but whether the transgressions are so egregious that they demand nothing less than a reversal of history.”
