Wave Of Sexual Harassment Charges Hits Democrats And Left-Wing Media

A wave of sexual harassment charges is hitting Democrats and leading figures of the left-wing media.

Outrageous examples of sexual harassment first hit Hollywood and now new charges are sweeping through Washington, D.C. and the left-wing media.

News broke that Representative John Conyers (D-MI) settled sexual harassment claims against him.

The Hill.com reports:

A wave of sexual harassment allegations is ripping through the White House press corps and broadcast networks, forcing a reckoning on sexism and power dynamics inside newsrooms at a time when the media’s credibility is already under attack.

The list of men in political media accused of sexual misconduct is long and growing by the day.

Glenn Thrush of The New York Times, Charlie Rose of CBS, author Mark Halperin, NBC’s Matthew Zimmerman, NPR’s Michael Oreskes, Vox’s Lockhart Steele, the New Republic’s Hamilton Fish and the Atlantic’s Leon Wieseltier have all been suspended or fired in the last month over varying degrees of alleged harassment or assault.

Not everyone in the media was concerned about the outrageous behavior of their media colleagues.

A CNN reporter expressed concern about a loss of media talent.

The Wrap reports:

CNN senior reporter Dylan Byers apologized (sort of) on Tuesday night after launching one of the more memorably tone-deaf takes on the current epidemic of sexual harassment allegations against big media figures.

“Beyond the pain/humiliation women have endured (which is of course the paramount issue), it’s worth taking stock of the incredible drain of talent from media/entertainment taking place right now,” he wrote.

“Never has so much talent left the industry all at once.”

The wave of sexual harassment charges continues to flow throughout institutions and the public is wondering who is next.
