, All MEN ARE IN DANGER OF HAVING THEIR LIVES DESTROYED BY FALSE ALLEGATIONS WITHOUT PROOF!!
ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME WHEN FALSE ACCUSATIONS WILL APPEAR AT YOUR DOORSTEP!!
FEMINIST TAKEOVER OF AMERICA THOUGH LYING AND DECEPTION!!
WAKE UP MEN!!

Earl Vaughn says:

Fake news consuming itself with its own double standards. Lol. Guilty until proven innocent.

phuoi trinh says:

You need to cut off the head of snakes otherwise they come back to life. This must be done in men with power and money that can destroy women's lives!

ZACH. says:

It’s awesome that they are reporting the news even though it’s from their own people. And the woman whom was doing the report was also the one who was assaulted by him.
They have true journalism standards.

Iman Amatullah says:

This is unfair. Guilty until proven innocent?! These men and their accusers deserve their day in court and a fair investigation

roal ik says:

The same lefties that have stood up for this 'guilty upon accusation' standard, are being knocked down by it. Fager himself, was taken down by the "If I am offended, you have committed a crime" horse5hit; also a lefty invention. Serves you right.

Sandy Hagey says:

3 powerful men by CBS have been accused of sexual harassment. What is going on by CBS?

Amethyst Perez says:

What's going on on CBS!!

frank Jones says:

I thought it wasn't that bad. I mean all he really said was if you don't have facts to back this up I'll get you fired. Which I think if your a reporter you should have the facts before trying to ruin someone's life

MarbleWhornets says:

CBS is like one big creepy, pervy, swamp!

Dasia Braxton says:

Wade in the water children, GODS GONE TROUBLE THE WATERS. I SEE U YOUR PAIN WILL BE WORSE THEN MINE.LET MY PEOPLE GO.

M. Clarkebrkly says:

Cbs showed real leadership. All others need take a read from the Cbs disciplinary pamphlet.

M. Clarkebrkly says:

The real story is, who is this black woman that think she can investigate me.

M. Clarkebrkly says:

This Jeff Fager would be great at Columbia University Medical Center. They cover up misconduct against black people. They engage in misconduct against black people at that place I wouldn't even say institution. They fall short of meeting the standards to be deemed institution.

Marcos Santana says:

Text message seals the deal for me

Timmy E says:

The Unveiling has just started…Amen!

Larry Dustin says:

Swamp is being drained!

Yousir Cantknow says:

The new way to get the old white guy who didn't give you a raise, fired.

badabing badabing says:

Show your text!

Rand Huso says:

It's time to appoint a woman executive producer who can drive that division out of business.

1aikane says:

I will never watch CBS news or 60 minutes again.

Ken says:

Well he deserved to be fired making threats to subordinates who are doing their job. One thing I will give CBS News that Fox News didn’t do was investigate themselves in a fair manner.

Brian D says:

There's no fighting this criminalization of being a man. Even if the allegations are true, a guy coming on to a woman, to lose his career means that men cannot be alone with women.

Matt Renfro says:

Almost 20 years?
