Leslie Moonves departs as chief of CBS, financial package to be withheld pending investigation

CBS Corporation announced on Sunday that chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves is departing the company, effective immediately. Moonves' exit comes hours after The New Yorker published accounts from six women with allegations of sexual assault or misconduct, following allegations by six other women in July.

A financial exit package for Moonves will be withheld pending the results of an ongoing investigation into the allegations against him. Moonves was eligible for as much as $180 million if fired without cause, according to an employment contract he signed in May 2017. Recent reports indicated a potential payout in the range of $100 million.

The company said in a statement that CBS and Moonves will donate $20 million to one or more organizations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace. The donation will be made immediately, the statement said, and deducted from any severance he ultimately receives.

Joseph Ianniello, the current Chief Operating Officer and deputy to Moonves, will serve as interim CEO while the board searches for a permanent leader.

Standard Operating Procedure for MoonVes Company ?

Taboo subject> ... for Media Masters (or only the Jooish ones?)
6 MORE WOMEN...

COO Joseph Ianniello will serve as president and acting chief while the board conducts a search for a permanent successor.

Just over six weeks after allegations of sexual misconduct were leveled against Leslie Moonves by on the record accusers, the CBS Corp. chief is departing a role he has held for more than a decade. 

On Sunday, hours after a second New Yorker exposé by Ronan Farrow detailed six more allegations of misconduct, CBS said that it was parting ways with Moonves, appointing chief operating officer Joseph Ianniello as acting CEO and pledging that the outgoing executive would not receive severance benefits "at this time." The company's Sunday statement also noted that there would be no imminent proposal to merge CBS and Viacom, a move that had been sought by Shari Redstone and controlling stakeholder National Amusements Inc. 

Ianniello will serve as president and acting CEO while the board conducts a search for a permanent successor. Ianniello, who joined the company in 2005, has been COO of CBS since June 2013. The chairman position will remain open pending the appointment of a permanent CEO.

In addition, Moonves and CBS will donate $20 million to one or more organizations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace. CBS said that the donation, which will be made immediately, has been deducted from any severance benefits that may be due Moonves following the board’s ongoing independent investigation led by the law firms of Covington & Burling and Debevoise & Plimpton. "Moonves will not receive any severance benefits at this time (other than certain fully accrued and vested compensation and benefits); any payments to be made in the future will depend upon the results of the independent investigation and subsequent Board evaluation," CBS added.

CBS also said it reached a settlement agreement with National Amusements Inc. and that five current independent directors and one NAI-affiliated director have stepped down from the board. The board members that have stepped down are Joseph Califano Jr., Charles Gifford, Leonard Goldberg, Arnold Kopelson, Douglas Morris and NAI-affiliated David Andelman.

Six new independent directors have been elected in their place: Candace Beinecke, Barbara Byrne, Brian Goldner, Richard D. Parsons, Susan Schuman and Strauss Zelnick. The new board will be comprised of 11 independent directors and two NAI-affiliated directors.

A Surrender to ME-too activitists?

Mr. Moonves is the latest high-powered entertainment figure to be ousted from his perch in the#MeToo era. Harvey Weinstein has been accused by scores of women of sexual assault and now faces felony charges. Matt Lauer stepped down as the anchor of NBC’s most valuable news program, “Today,” after several women alleged incidents of sexual harassment spanning years. Charlie Rose of CBS and PBS left the airwaves after he, too, was implicated by multiple women. All of those men have denied any nonconsensual sexual activity.

For several weeks, Mr. Moonves has been grappling with two separate but equally fateful issues while negotiating a settlement with CBS Corporation’s board of directors on his exit. In addition to the multiple harassment allegations against him, Mr. Moonves has been involved in a protracted legal fight with the company’s controlling shareholder, Shari Redstone. All parties have now agreed to dismiss the lawsuit. The company also announced that five members of its board will be replaced with new directors. The new slate of directors adds three women to the 12-member board, raising the number of female members to six.

Jane Fonda says Moonves ouster 'only the beginning'...

Jane Fonda believes the downfall of Leslie Moonveswon’t be the last we’ll see among powerful entertainment industry executives.

“It’s a shame he didn’t behave, [but now] it’s come back to get him,” Fonda said at Thursday night’s Los Angeles premiere of the HBO documentary “Jane Fonda in Five Acts” at the Armand Hammer Museum.

Moonves departed on Sunday amid a cascade of sexual assault and misconduct allegations.

“This has been happening for a long time and it’s been an epidemic of behavior like this on the part of people who have power,” Fonda said. “I think the #MeToo movement has started an avalanche. And it’s only the beginning.”

Fonda also said she wasn’t surprised when Robert Redford recently announced he was retiring from acting by revealing that his new drama, “The Old Man & the Gun,” would likely be the last time audiences will see him on the big screen.

Fonda said she’s known of Redford’s intentions since they collaborated two years ago on the romantic drama “Our Souls at Night.”

Is it Moonves?  Or Moonbeam? ... Who will go?

Wall Street Journal

Elon Musk’s SpaceX, demonstrating its founder and chief executive’s penchant for showmanship, announced that it had signed up the first private passenger seeking to fly around the moon. But the company provided no timetable or other details about the plan.

In a message on Twitter on Thursday, closely held Space Exploration Technologies Corp. said the mission is slated to use its largest rocket, dubbed the BFR, which is still under development and, according to some industry officials, may be at least a year or two from an initial test flight. Others speculated that, based on SpaceX’s history, the BFR may not launch humans until the middle of the next decade.

In the message, however, SpaceX described the latest plan as “an important step toward enabling access for everyday people who dream of traveling to space.” The identity of the passenger and other specifics are expected to be disclosed Monday.

On Thursday, Musk tweeted a picture of a Japanese flag. He followed that up on Sunday with tweets showing new artist renderings of the Big Falcon Rocket, or BFR, the super heavy-lift launch vehicle that Musk promises will shuttle the passenger to the moon and eventually fly humans and cargo to Mars, using the hashtag #OccupyMars.

Sumner Redstone : “yes,” “no,” and “fuck you” buttons on his iPad

THE MOONVES NIGHTMARE ONLY BEGINNING...

SHARI TAKES CONTROL OF CBS...

REPORT: FEDS EYE REDSTONES...

Earlier this month, federal prosecutors investigating possible tax-related financial crimes issued grand jury subpoenas for information regarding Manuela Herzer and the Redstone family—the latest stunning jolt to CBS, a company already reeling from the sudden departure of Les Moonves.

battle-for-cbs-drama-2.jpg

As CBS tries to forget Les Moonves, its disgraced ex-C.E.O., an even more portentous question hangs over the $20 billion company. It’s not the issue of Moonves’s potential $120 million severance, which could provide a humiliating coda to his resignation, or the search for his successor, or even the labyrinthine legal squabble about the issuance of dilutive dividends between the CBS board and the Redstone family, the company’s controlling shareholder, which was dropped when Moonves agreed to step down. Rather, it is a separate legal case winding its way through a California court that threatens to make the Moonves scandal an anecdote in the broader fight over the future of CBS.

Since 2015, Sumner Redstone’s ex-girlfriend, Manuela Herzer, has been battling to have herself reinstated into his will, arguing that Sumner, the family’s 95-year-old patriarch, was mentally incapable of exiling her, and that Sumner’s daughter, Shari, had manipulated him into removing her from his estate. A related federal RICO lawsuit was dismissed in July, but Herzer is still seeking damages in state court that could amount to tens of millions of dollars. More important, from the point of view of CBS shareholders, the case could prove that Sumner—who is immobile and is relegated to poking “yes,” “no,” and “fuck you” buttons on his iPad—was not of sound mind when Shari assumed control of his media empire nearly three years ago.

  Authorities Probe CBS Over Moonves, 'Culture' Concerns...

The New York investigations could add significantly to the upheaval at the company in the wake of Moonves’ forced resignation on Sept. 9 and the ongoing internal probe. Moonves is accused of sexual misconduct dating back years and of using his clout to harm the careers of women who rebuffed him; he has denied most of the allegations. The New Yorker expose also zeroed in on what numerous sources told Farrow was a frequently hostile working environment for women at CBS News, particularly “60 Minutes,” where longtime executive producer Jeff Fager was fired earlier this month.

CBS has been engulfed in corporate drama in recent months after launching a legal battle in May against its controlling shareholder, National Amusements Inc. That case was also settled on Sept. 9 amid Moonves’ ouster along with the installation of six new board members on the 13-member panel. Two other longtime board members resigned earlier this week as new member Richard Parsons, former head of Time Warner, was named interim chairman.

CBS is also in the midst of a search for a new CEO. Joe Ianniello, CBS’ chief operating officer, has taken on acting CEO duties in the interim.

'If Bobbie Talks, I'm Finished': How Moonves Tried to Silence Accuser...

CBS’s Moonves Accused of Coverup Scheme with Latest Accuser

Former CBS chairman and CEO Les Moonves allegedly sexually assaulted actress Bobbie Phillip and help hatched a plan to cover-up the 20-plus-year-old incident, according to a report released Wednesday.

The New York Times reports Phillip’s manager Marv Dauer set up a meeting between the actress and Moonves, who was president of Warner Bros. at the time, in March 1995. Mooves is said to have promised Philips that he would connect her with casting director John Levey to mull over potential roles for the actress.

During the meeting, Phillips alleges Moonves had unbuttoned his pants and exposed his genitals to the horrified actress. “Look how hard you make me,” the Warner Bros. executive allegedly told Philips. “Be my girlfriend and I’ll put you on any show.”

Governor Moonbeam Jerry Brown: Democrats Becoming Too Radical for Majority of Voters

Outgoing California Governor Jerry Brown told National Public Radio (NPR) that the Democratic Party is becoming more radical than the majority of voters would prefer — though he blamed Republicans for the shift.

“The weakness of the Republican Party has let the Democratic Party, I think, go get further out than I think the majority of people want,” Brown told NPR’s Ari Shapiro on Tuesday’s edition of All Things Considered. “So there’s plenty of opportunity for Republicans if they just pause, look at the world as it really is, and try to come up with something in the tradition of Lincoln and Eisenhower and other great Republicans.”

Democrats regained a supermajority in the state legislature in last month’s elections, allowing the party to pass legislation at will. Incoming Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has already staked out positions to the left of Brown on a variety of issues, though he is attempting to appeal to a cross-section of the state’s electorate, appearing at a town hall in Fresno as recently as last week.
