    ANother update on the Moonves Outrage

    The ousted mogul's security detail and office space remains on the network's dime for the next two years, an arrangement some call "unacceptable."
    Leslie Moonves may have resigned as CEO of CBS Corp. on Sept. 9 following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, but the company is retaining him for up to two more years as an unpaid adviser, supplying him an office and paying for a security detail. Why?

    While a departing CEO is often retained — usually with a hefty salary — to help transition the newcomer, the arrangement with Moonves is raising some eyebrows. "Les Moonves is a serial sexual predator," says Shaunna Thomas, executive director of the women's group UltraViolet. "For CBS to keep him on — even as an unpaid adviser — is wholly unacceptable. He is a danger to their employees and should have no relationship with the company going forward." (Moonves has denied the claims.)

    CBS had no comment on the arrangement. But people close to the situation tell THR that the office the company is providing Moonves is likely in Los Angeles near his homes in Malibu and Beverly Hills (he also keeps a residence in New York) at property not owned by CBS, so there's no reason employees need to encounter their embattled former leader.

    CBS laid out the plan in an SEC filing that doesn't mention how much it will spend on Moonves, but in 2017 it shelled out $640,552 for his security alone. It shouldn't cost that much going forward, though, since Moonves won't be traveling as often as a mere adviser — and won't be using the company plane. Plus, the filing stipulates only "security services at executive's home."

    The protest in that story is crazy. It's like refusing to hire someone because he is an ex-con or recovering alcoholic. That's prejudice. He won't be coming into contact with employees, and having a company-paid security team pretty much guarantees that he won't be making any unwanted advances to anyone.

    However in this era people want the Dexter Morgan solution. Basically like this link.
