The New York Times announced that star reporter Glenn Thrush will not be fired but will be removed from the team of reporters covering the White House after he was suspended last month amid allegations he sexually harassed co-workers.
“While we believe that Glenn has acted offensively, we have decided that he does not deserve to be fired,” New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet said in a statement.
Thrush will remain suspended until late January, when the paper moves him to a different beat. Thrush is also an MSNBC contributor but hasn’t appeared on the network since he was sidelined by the paper, as MSNBC was “awaiting the outcome of The Times’s investigation.” MSNBC declined comment over when he might be welcomed back.
The Times did not mention where Thrush would be assigned or who would replace him at the White House. Baquet said Thrush was undergoing counseling and substance abuse rehabilitation and would receive training “to improve his workplace conduct.” – READ MORE
