This wasn’t how they drew it up. The journalists who accused Trump of sexual misconduct have now been fired due to harassment allegations of their own.
Tronc, the parent company of The New York Daily News, confirmed to the Huffington Post that two of their top editors were fired as a result of harassment allegations made against them by current and former employees.
Per Conservative Tribune:
One of the accused men, managing editor Rob Moore, “had a habit of calling employees over to show them photos of women he’d slept with.”
“When it came to his sexual harassment, it often consisted of him bragging about his sexual exploits,” one unnamed staffer said to the Post. “He would often make co-workers uncomfortable with his bragging, sometimes showing pictures — not naked pictures, but certainly suggestive pictures — of women he was with.”
Another staffer claimed Moore sometimes remarked on her appearance, calling her “hot” and encouraging her to spend time with him outside the office.
Many at the Daily News knew about Moore’s behavior but kept it under wraps because of threats that he would fire anyone who dared complain about him.
Tronc only recently “launched an investigation into Moore after NPR asked the company about a sexual harassment complaint lodged against him in December, soon after he reportedly interviewed to become the newspaper’s new editor-in-chief,” the Post reported.
According to the report, the other accused man, Sunday editor Alexander “Doc” Jones, made “unwanted physical contact with female employees such as kissing them, hugging them and/or grabbing their hands.” This was according to an internal email that the Post was able to review.
The HR department of the Daily News knew about Jones’ behavior, but “not take proper action on complaints against” it.
Even though all of this has went down, the Daily News continues to run hit pieces on President Trump. Of course they haven’t ran a single piece on Moore or Johnson. Why would they? It’s clear their only goal is to make President Trump look bad and make themselves look good. Which is getting harder and harder by the day.
Two editors at Daily News under investigation for sexual harassment have been fired. Alexander “Doc” Jones the Sunday editor and Rob Moore, the managing editor/news “are no longer with the company” a spokeswoman for parent company Tronc confirmed Thursday.
