10 Women Who Could Replace Charlie Rose

CBS has officially fired Charlie Rose, the longtime journalist and television host, following a number of sexual harassment allegations reported this week in The Washington Post. A memo was sent out to CBS News staffers that reads: “Despite Charlie’s important contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace—a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work. We need to be such a place.”

Agreed, CBS. Which is why, as Mother Jones Editor-in-Chief Clara Jeffrey suggests, it’d be a great idea to offer the spot to one of the many competent, successful female journalists working today. Following her lead, we break down a few choice candidates. Male CBS News execs, don’t pretend you don’t have options!

What the new wave of true-crime TV could teach us – if we let it

True-crime stories used to keep me awake nights.

Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood; Ann Rule, writing about her old friend, serial killer Ted Bundy, in The Stranger Beside Me: These were the gateways to an addiction that left me more nervous about violent crime — not to mention the possibility that casual acquaintances might be homicidal psychopaths — than  I had any right to be statistically.

When I eventually kicked the habit and returned to novels, I breathed easier. Turns out I’m fine with murder mysteries as long as they’re fictional.

On television, I learned to avoid those 48 Hours episodes that might trigger a relapse, and if I was watching the Investigation Discovery channel, you can bet it was work-related. Because I don’t think it’s an accident that the network of  Evil Twins and Deadly Women offers a prize for the “ID Addict of the

DeOrr’s father disputes claims in new video that he could hurt his child

IDAHO FALLS — The father of missing Idaho Falls toddler DeOrr Kunz Jr. says he would never hurt or do anything to his child, despite what his ex-girlfriend says in a newly released video.

Vernal DeOrr Kunz spoke with EastIdahoNews.com on Monday after learning Jessica Mitchell, his ex-girlfriend, made claims about him in a nearly eight-minute long Investigation Discovery video.

“I believe Deorr’s father could have hurt him,” Mitchell says in the video. “He’s living his life like it’s nothing and I’m falling apart every day.”

Mitchell and Kunz were camping with Mitchell’s grandfather, Robert Walton, and Isaac Reinwand, a friend of Walton’s, at Timber Creek Campground in Lemhi County in July 2015 when DeOrr vanished.

After numerous searches of the campground and surrounding areas, no clues of DeOrr’s whereabouts have ever been found.

In January 2016, former Lemhi County Sheriff Lynn Bowerman named Kunz and Mitchell as suspects in DeOrr’s disappearance, but the
