Former CBS chairman Les Moonves fired for cause, will not receive severance in wake of sexual misconduct allegations

By Elahe Izadi and Travis M. Andrews December 17 at 7:02 PM

Les Moonves, the once-powerful head of CBS, will not receive any severance payment in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations, CBS’s board of directors announced Monday.

The network made the announcement after the completion of a company investigation that found Moonves guilty of “willful and material malfeasance” and a failure to comply with the investigation. He was set to receive as much as $120 million as part of his severance package, depending on the results of the inquiry.

Moonves resigned in September after several women accused him of sexual misconduct in a pair of scathing exposes in the New Yorker.

A lawyer for Moonves called the CBS board’s conclusions “without merit.”

1. I believe that they are being far too generous

He needs to pay them back for all the money they lost or will lose to settle with those affected by his misconduct.

Penniless on the street is far too good for this "charming" gentleman.
