New Yorker Magazine Piece Details Sexual Misconduct Accusations Against CBS CEO Les Moonves

Ronan Farrow, The New Yorker contributor whose reporting on sexual harassment led to the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, is reportedly poised to release a new piece about CBS CEO Leslie Moonves. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Farrow’s forthcoming piece will detail harassment allegations against Moonves that go as far back as 20 years, as well as some that are more recent. The New Yorker, however, says it does not comment on unpublished stories.

On this week’s edition of Beat the Press, Emily Rooney was joined by Dan Kennedy of Northeastern University, Callie Crossley of WGBH News, Tom Fiedler of Boston University and Roy Harris, a former journalist at The Wall Street Journal.
