In summing up Tyson’s “remarkable career,” he wrote, “She was dignity. It was there always.” Rose also pasted a transcript from an interview he’d done with the star in 1994. What’s curious is that it is perhaps the first professional communication in many months from Rose, whose career and reputation were destroyed after The Washington Post reported in 2018 that more than two dozen women had accused him of sexual harassment.
Rose, now 79, exited his posts at CBS and PBS and has since kept a low profile. Aside from two retweets and a March 2018 tweet with the letter “H,” Rose hasn’t communicated at all beyond an official statement posted on Nov. 20, 2017, that included an apology. “I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that,” he wrote, adding that, “I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate.”
So, what to make of his Tyson email? Is he prepping a comeback or just taking a walk down memory lane? For what it’s worth, his website still lists him as the anchor and executive producer of the nightly program Charlie Rose and as the co-anchor of CBS This Morning and contributing correspondent to 60 Minutes.
THR sent several emails to Rose that were unreturned as of press time.
