It isn't a bombshell.
This latest expose, which you can read here, is pretty damning, though. And as Moonves exits CBS, with probably a nice severance package, he won't be going gently into the night.
Likely lawyer Dan Petrocelli's role in representing Moonves during the internal investigation was to negotiate that deal. However, we all wonder what legal shoes will drop. Will criminal legal actions be taken against Moonves and the network?
The new report of six more women who accuse Moonves creates a portrait of a violent power-mad sexual predator. Surely, this will become an episode on "Law & Order SUV."
One of the women - Phyllis Golden-Gottlieb - alleges that Moonves kept her captive, forced her into oral sex, and threw her against the wall. Others note the kind of alleged retaliation by him which ruins careers.
What we think is: monster.
Now, of course, CBS will have to tell this story. Other media as well as public relations players and legal analysts will assess how comprehensively and accurately it does that.
With Moonves' exit power will shift inside CBC. Employees at all levels have to be prepared for terminations. With so much consolidation in media, this is a lousy era in which to look for comparable jobs.
