New York Times reporter suspended after misconduct allegations surface

The allegations relate to a time when Glenn Thrush worked for Politico.

THE NEW YORK Times said it has suspended White House reporter Glenn Thrush while it investigates charges that he made unwanted advances on young women while he worked as a reporter at Politico.

Laura McGann, a Politico colleague of Thrush’s, wrote on Vox today that Thrush kissed her and placed his hand on her thigh one night in a bar, after urging another person who had been sitting with them to leave.

The Times, in a statement, said “the alleged behaviour is very concerning and not in keeping with the Times’ standards”.

The newspaper said it supports Thrush’s decision to enter a substance abuse programme. Thrush didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment. He worked at Politico from 2009 to 2016.
