‘60 Minutes’ Chief Jeff Fager Fired from CBS After Groping Allegations

NEW YORK — CBS News on Wednesday fired “60 Minutes” top executive Jeff Fager, who has been under investigation following reports that he groped women at parties and tolerated an abusive workplace.

The network news president, David Rhodes, said Fager’s firing was “not directly related” to the allegations against him, but because he violated company policy. Fager said it was because of a text message he sent to a CBS News reporter who was covering the story about him.

“My language was harsh and, despite the fact that journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it,” Fager said.

Accused = guilty = judgement=public shaming, loss of career, house, car. Spouse, kids, all friends. Courts are no longer needed.

This is wrong on so many levels, he didn't do anything more than Uncle Joe Biden did while at the Whitehouse.
