The text message from Fager represents an attempt to pull rank and intimidate a reporter, something that surely happens to investigative reporters all the time at CBS News. "Since Jeff Fager publicly referred to our exchange today, I want to be transparent about it. It was. I'll have more reporting on this tonight", she tweeted.
Some CBS board members wanted to stand by Les Moonves in the face of his swelling sexual misconduct scandal - but they turned on him after learning he was trying to buy one accuser's silence, according to a new report.
In a statement sent to CNN's Brian Stelter, Fager said his ouster had nothing to do with the New Yorker story. "My language was harsh and, despite the fact that all journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it". However, Moonves wasn't the only CBS honcho named and the spotlight was placed on Fager after Moonves' exit. In August, he denied the allegations, telling The New Yorker that his accusers were "using an important movement as a weapon", apparently referencing the "Me Too" movement. Fager's ouster comes just days after CBS CEO Les Moonves was forced to step down over his own allegations of sexual misconduct and attempts to suppress his victims.

Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Thomason - creator of one of CBS" biggest "80s and '90s sitcoms, "Designing Women" - claimed the disgraced mogul kept her shows off the air for seven years. "However, he violated company policy and it is our commitment to uphold those policies at every level", wrote Rhodes.
Following her report, evening news anchor Jeff Glor told Duncan that Fager's message was "unacceptable", and that everyone at the broadcast supported her.
The directors then began planning his exit - but reportedly still planned on giving him a $90 million exit package, until the New Yorker published a second story Sunday with six more accusers who also slammed the possibility of a golden parachute.
In two New Yorker articles, the latest posted on Saturday, some women described the "60 Minutes" culture as a boy's club that's rough on women.
Farrow also cited "nineteen current and former employees" who said Fager "allowed harassment in the division". He succeeded founding executive producer Don Hewitt in 2004, and has kept it the most influential news programs on television.
