Charlie Rose is planning a comeback that centers around rehabilitating men named in the #MeToo reckoning

Published

Talk show host and women’s advocate, Tina Brown, said she was approached by CBS to produce a show that would give a mic to the men who have been slashed by the #MeToo movement.

According to Page Six News, a source said: “Tina said she’d just been e-mailed about co-hosting a new show with Charlie Rose, in which they’d interview Louis C.K., Matt Lauer.”

CBS anchor Charlie Rose is set to host the new show. During a panel discussion at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy’s Women’s Luncheon, Brown said that she was disgusted by the show idea and declined the offer.

“These guys are already planning their comebacks!” Brown said.

It’s speculated that several high profile men who have lost their jobs due to sexual abuse claims might be planning to share their side of events.

“I’m nowhere near ready to see Matt Lauer, Louis C.K., Charlie Rose, Mario Batali, or any of the host of other powerful men brought down by the #MeToo movement return to public life,” Kristen Bellstorm, a writer for Fortune said. “Yet in the past week or so, there’s been an ominous drip-drip-drip of stories reporting on how these men are faring  in ‘exile’ and speculating about how they might stage their comebacks.”

Rose did not respond to a request for comment.

On July 3, 1945, the great atomic scientist Leo Szilard finished a letter/petition that would become the strongest (virtually the only) real attempt at halting President Truman's march to using the atomic bomb--still almost two weeks from its first test at Trinity--against Japanese cities.

A ranger at Carlsbad Caverns National Park tased and then fatally shot a man during a New Mexico traffic stop and then handcuffed his lifeless body.

Charles "Gage" Lorentz was traveling March 21 from his work site in Pecos, Texas, to his family's home in southwest Colorado when he detoured at the national park to meet a friend, and that's where he encountered National Park Ranger Robert Mitchell, reported KOB-TV.

The ranger stopped the 25-year-old Lorentz for speeding on a dirt road near the park's Rattlesnake Springs area, and Mitchell's lapel video shows him ordering Lorentz to spread his feet and move closer to a railing.

Sessions, one of Trump's earliest supporters who was later fired after years of attacks from the president, is currently attempting to reclaim his old Senate seat in Alabama. Sessions has desperately tried to tout his Trumpist credentials on the campaign trail, even as the president has waged a campaign aimed at sabotaging his primary bid.
