Source Says Charlie Rose Forced CBS to Fire Potential Replacement Josh Elliott: ‘Stabbed Him in the Back’

It looks like Charlie Rose, accused serial harasser and haver of ye olde “Crusty Paw,” screwed CBS even more than previously thought. Thanks to his alleged shenanigans, and some behind the scenes machinations earlier this year, the network is without a big-name host for CBS This Morning. CBS was grooming anchor Josh Elliott for the job but, according to an unnamed source who spoke to New York Post, Rose was threatened by the upstart and arranged for him to get fired, despite acting friendly to his face. “Josh was ousted by Charlie and his monstrous ego,” the source said. “Charlie flattered Josh to his face, invited him to cover on his PBS show, then stabbed him in the back by issuing an ultimatum to [CBS News President] David Rhodes, who has made a huge mistake.
