It's not clear whether Rose will look for a new distribution partner, or whether he will simply air the show online, as Bill O'Reilly has been doing since he got booted from Fox News this spring.

"This is a moment that demands a frank and honest assessment about where we stand and more generally the safety of women", she said.

Gyllenhaal stars as a meek secretary who becomes engaged in a sexually dominant relationship with her boss, played by Spader. That's hard.' Then I think about what these women were going through.

Rose made the claim to a reporter from TMZ as he walked back to his NY city apartment Monday evening, responding to a question about multiple allegations of wrongdoing toward women who worked on his PBS talk show. While Rose himself offered a kind of apology, he also issued a statementsaying in part, "I do not believe all of these allegations are accurate".

The women's allegations against Rose date back to the 1990s, when Rose turned nascent acclaim for his self-titled show into one of the most powerful programs in journalism. One of the women says Rose whispered a sexual innuendo in her ear while touching her inappropriately at a work-related event, CBS2's Janelle Burrell reported.

The "CBS This Morning" eye-opener segment, a 90-second collection of film clips about the day, also led with the Rose story and quoted two pundits speculating the charges may end his career. Rose also faces several allegations of unwanted groping from six separate women.

"I am greatly embarrassed".

"It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behaviour".

"I failed", said Vega, 52, who has worked with Rose since the show was created in 1991.

It was a Washington Post article that exposed the 75-year-old Rose after eight women came forward accusing him of sexual misconduct.
