CBS and Moonves are also immediately donating $20 million to organizations that support the #metoo movement.

The donation, to be made immediately, has been deducted from severance benefits that may be due Moonves following the CBS board's ongoing independent investigation into accusations against him.

In August, the CBS board of directors hired two outside law firms to investigate the initial claims against Moonves, as well as other reports of sexual harassment and an inappropriate culture for women throughout CBS and the CBS News division.

The New Yorker reported on Sunday that the additional six women said Moonves also retaliated after they rebuffed him, damaging their careers.

This tweet came on the heels of journalist Ronan Farrow's July report where the first of many womne would come forward to speak about their experiences with Moonves; sexual harassment and/or sexual assaults and then retibution.

Moonves, in a statement to The New Yorker, acknowledged three of the encounters while maintaining that they were consensual.

CNN reported a slightly different arrangement, citing the previously-reported $100 million number but adding: "the compensation will be deferred until the harassment investigations are completed, some of the sources said". "And I have never used my position to hinder the advancement or careers of women", Moonves said in response to Farrow's report.
