Scott Pelley unloaded on former CBS News management – specifically ex-news division president David Rhodes – for being "incompetent" and creating a "hostile work environment."

"Well, we've been through a dark period of the last several years of incompetent management and sort of a hostile work environment within the news division," Pelley told CNN's "Reliable Sources." 

"I lost my job at the '[CBS] Evening News' because I wouldn't stop complaining about the hostile work environment."

Pelley says changes leave "all blue skies from here" and "I know we're on the right track," pointing to the likes of CBS News President Susan Zirinsky.

The "hostile" environment existed for both women and men, Pelley claimed, taking his concerns past CBS News to the chairman of CBS.

"I didn't hear back from him, but in the next opportunity in my contract, I was let go from the 'Evening News," Pelley told host Brian Stelter.

Rhodes denied the allegations to The Daily Beast.

"That simply never happened," Rhodes told the Beast of the Pelley's claim if he kept "agitating him" over the accusations he would lose his job. "And if he had those conversations about this with anybody, it wasn’t with me."
