I never realized how many clowns are such pigs and have no game.
The New York Times White House correspondent Glenn Thrush has been suspended pending an investigation into sexual harassment allegations.
Three young women I interviewed, including the young woman who met Thrush in June, described to me a range of similar experiences, from unwanted groping and kissing to
wet kisses out of nowhere to hazy sexual encounters that played out under the influence of alcohol. Each woman described feeling differently about these experiences: scared, violated, ashamed, weirded out. I was — and am — angry.
Details of their stories suggest a pattern. All of the women were in their 20s at the time. They were relatively early in their careers compared to Thrush, who was the kind of seasoned journalist who would be good to know. At an event with alcohol, he made advances. Afterward, they (as I did) thought it best to stay on good terms with Thrush, whatever their feelings.
From The New York Times:
“The behavior attributed to Glenn in this Vox story is very concerning and not in keeping with the standards and values of The New York Times,” The Times said in a statement on Monday. “We intend to fully investigate and while we do, Glenn will be suspended.”-RW
The Times also said Mr. Thrush had said he planned to enter a substance abuse program and that the newspaper supported his decision.
Re: Glenn Thrush, harassment, and where the lines are: i don't think it's really that complicated or that most men honestly don't know. I was always taught that the standard for navigating ambiguity w/r/t ethics was, don't do anything you wouldn't want to see on A1 of the Times— Elizabeth Spiers (@espiers) November 20, 2017
