After the Washington Post released an article on Monday where eight women accused Rose of sexual harassment, the 75-year-old newsman posted a statement on Twitter where he apologized.
“In my 45 years in journalism, I have prided myself on being an advocate for the careers of the women with whom I have worked,” reads Rose's statement. “Nevertheless, in the past few days, claims have been made about my behavior toward some former female colleagues. It is essential that these women know I hear them and that I deeply apologize for my inappropriate behavior."
The statement continues, "I am greatly embarrassed. I have behaved insensitively at times, and I accept responsibility for that, though I do not believe that all of these allegations are accurate. I always felt that I was pursuing shared feelings, even though I now realize I was mistaken."
