Jeff Fager was fired after sending a warning to CBS News Reporter

Jeff Fager, former head of "60 Minutes", was fired for sending a harsh warning via text message to the CBS News journalist who is covering the sexual harassment scandals that have rocked CBS in recent weeks.

Fager was left on Wednesday amid increasing pressure from sexual harassment by many women, as reported by Ronan Farrow in the New Yorker.

CBS News president David Rhodes said Wednesday that Fager was fired for violating company policy. Fager issued a statement referring to the text message sent by correspondent Jericka Duncan after he contacted him for a comment on Sunday, the day when Farrow's last exposure was published.

According to Farrow's report, Fager was accused of trying to grope or inappropriately touched CBS News female staff at corporate events.
