A re­port by CBS lawyers out­lines more al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct by long­time chief Les Moonves, The New York Times re­ported.

The re­port al­leges that Moonves de­stroyed ev­i­dence and mis­led in­ves­ti­ga­tors as he at­tempted to pro­tect his rep­u­ta­tion and sev­er­ance pay­ments. It says in­ves­ti­ga­tors had re­ceived “mul­ti­ple re­ports” about a net­work em­ployee who was “on call” to per­form oral sex on Moonves.

CBS de­clined to com­ment Wed­nes­day and lawyers for Moonves did not im­me­di­ately re­spond. The 59-page re­port is to be pre­sented to CBS’s board of di­rec­tors next week, it said.

‘Daily Show’ host Trevor Noah si­lenced by voice is­sue

Fans of “The Daily Show” got to see Trevor Noah host Tues­day night’s Com­edy Cen­tral broad­cast. But they didn’t get to hear him. The rea­son: Noah has lost his voice and is un­der doc­tor’s or­ders not to ut­ter a word.

The show be­gan as usual, with the theme song play­ing and the au­di­ence cheer­ing as the South African-born co­me­dian walked onto the set and sat at his desk. But when the cam­era pointed at the desk, the TV au­di­ence saw co­me­dian Mike Acosta there.

Speak­ing for Noah, Acosta told the au­di­ence that, in­deed, the show “was a lit­tle dif­fer­ent” in that Noah was or­dered not to speak – or risk need­ing surgery. He didn’t elab­o­rate on what caused the vo­cal prob­lem or how long Noah will be un­able to speak.
