Les Moonves Saddened To Leave CBS After Misconduct Allegations

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves says he's "deeply saddened" to be leaving the company following accusations of sexual misconduct.  In a statement, Moonves said the numerous allegations were not true and not consistent with who he is.  A dozen women have accused Moonves of misconduct, with six of the 12 claims coming to light this weekend.  In a New Yorker article published Sunday morning, the women claimed Moonves exposed himself to them, was physically violent and threatened to hurt their careers.  As part of a deal that brought about his exit, Moonves and CBS will donate $20M towards the #MeToo movement.  COO Joseph Ianniello will serve as president and acting CEO until a permanent successor is selected.
