I guess the other part of my question #1 is why does this story obsess so much over the value of his real estate holdings? It fawns over it in the body of the story, and then just in case we missed it, gives us a summary at the end. Rose owns a $5M home in the Hamptons, a $3M apartment in Manhattan, a $2M pad in Georgetown and a farm of unreported value in North Carolina. If Charlie Rose’s sexual misbehavior is related to his growing belief that his own shit didn’t stink, then it might have something to do with getting so grossly overpaid to do interviews about which the most complimentary thing one might saw is that they were better than Barbara Walters or Larry King.
