Stephen Colbert shocked by CBS CEO allegations

[van id=”cnnmoney/2018/07/31/colbert-moonves-cbs-wmj-orig.cnn”]

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert addressed recent allegations against his boss, CBS CEO Les Moonves, during his show Monday night, urging accountability, but stopping short of calling for specific action as the network executive faces allegations of sexual harassment.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I do believe in accountability,” Colbert said. “And not just for politicians you disagree with. Everybody believes in accountability until it’s their guy.”

Colbert discussed his history with Moonves, who brought Colbert to the prestigious late-night gig from Comedy Central following David Letterman’s 2015 retirement.

“He hired me to sit in this chair. He stood behind this show while we were struggling to find our voice. He gave us the time and the resources to succeed and he has stood by us when people were mad at me. And I like working for him.”

United CEO in Hospital

(CHICAGO) United CEO Oscar Munoz is in a Chicago hospital after reportedly suffering a heart attack.  No word on his condition.

United says Munoz’s family tells them that the 56-year old CEO was admitted yesterday and the company is respecting their privacy.

Just last month, Oscar Munoz was appointed to the CEO position telling reporters that – even with management changes at United over the last couple of years, “We’re really not that unstable.  Clearly, there has been organizational changes and operational and systems issues and all that but we made significant progress over the past few years – and certainly this year and we also have a very, very actively involved board made up of members – several whom have a lot of industry experience,” said Munoz.

Munoz replaced Jeff Smisek in September.  Smisek has been one of the targets of a probe into improprieties with the authority that runs airports in the New York area.
