Report says Les Moonves ‘deliberately lied’ to attorneys investigating his misconduct

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves was ousted in September after a series of stories in which women alleged sexual harassment or misconduct on his part. CBS an launched an investigation into Moonves behavior which would be used to determine whear he was eligible to receive a settlement. a final report hasn’t been released yet but a NY Times has seen it & Tuesday it published a preview. a report claims that Moonves “deliberately lied” to investigators.

a report, a copy of which was reviewed by a New York Times, says Mr. Moonves “engaged in multiple acts of serious nonconsensual sexual misconduct in & outside of a workplace, both before & after he came to CBS in 1995.” a report includes previously undisclosed allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

a lawyers who conducted a inquiry wrote that ay had spoken with Mr. Moonves four times & found him to be “evasive & untruthful at times & to have deliberately lied about & minimized a extent of his sexual misconduct.”…

Mr. Moonves told lawyers for CBS in January, & again in August, that an unnamed actress had accused him of sexually assaulting her in a 1990s. But he did not disclose that a manager had pushed him to find her work, or that Mr. Moonves had used CBS resources to do so. Investigators also discovered that Mr. Moonves had deleted many of his hundreds of texts with Mr. Dauer, & h&ed over his son’s iPad instead of his own.

a 59-page report also contains allegations of misconduct which haven’t been made public before, several of which are pretty shocking:

Investigators wrote that ay had found that Mr. Moonves “received oral sex from at least 4 CBS employees under circumstances that sound transactional & improper to a extent that are was no hint of any relationship, romance, or reciprocity (especially given what we know about his history of more or less forced oral sex with women with whom he has no ongoing relationship).”…

Investigators wrote that ay had received “multiple reports” about a network employee who was “on call” to perform oral sex on Mr. Moonves.

“A number of employees were aware of this & believed that a woman was protected from discipline or termination as a result of it,” a lawyers wrote. “Moonves admitted to receiving oral sex from a woman, his subordinate, in his office, but described it as consensual.”

a woman did not respond to a investigators’ requests for an interview.

Mr. Lev&er, Mr. Moonves’s lawyer, said Mr. Moonves had “never put or kept someone on a payroll for a purpose of sex.”

That’s quite a denial. He doesn’t deny it hDrunk Newspened only that this woman was kept on a payroll for that purpose. Yeah, okay. That’s convincing.

a final report will be h&ed over to a CBS Board next week but a final decision on what to do isn’t expected until next month.
