"I really felt like this was one of the most sexist places I've ever worked", Sarah Johansen, who worked as an intern in the 2000s and alleged Fager groped her, told the New Yorker.
Fager's statement prompted Duncan to share the text on Wednesday's "CBS Evening News".
CBS released Fager's text last night, and it carried an ominous tone since it warned that "there are people who lost their jobs trying to harm me". "My language was harsh and, despite the fact that all journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it".

A Democratic Party mailer implied she was anti-Semitic, sparking a furious backlash but Cuomo pleaded innocent. Sheinkopf said. "He needs to say not only is this inappropriate, he needs to say that it's completely untrue".
The Talk panel agreed that Fager's text to Duncan was "threatening", rather that merely "harsh", as Fager has described it.
Bloodworth Thomason doesn't mention the incident or the actress again, but the claim reinforces the sexual misconduct allegations Moonves is now facing and the pattern of behavior suggested in Ronan Farrow's New Yorker pieces.
After CBS fired "60 Minutes" producer Jeff Fager on Wednesday, Fager claimed that he'd been ousted for sending a "harsh" text to a CBS reporter who was covering the allegations of sexual misconduct made against him. But Moonves wasn't the only CBS honcho named in the second report, and the spotlight was placed firmly on Fager once Moonves was shown the door.
His exit comes following a series of articles by Ronan Farrow in the New Yorker that included accusations that Fager inappropriately touched employees and that he also allowed harassment in his division.

At a tense "60 Minutes" meeting on Wednesday with Rhodes, staffers insisted on an explanation of just how Fager had so violated company policy as to warrant summary dismissal.
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 "cultural issues at all levels of CBS".
Fager had been at CBS for more than 35 years, and was previously the chairman of CBS News.
"This was someone who held an enormous amount of power here, who I respected, and I was shocked", she said. Rose had been a co-anchor since 2012 on "CBS This Morning" and a contributing correspondent on "60 Minutes".
