Glenn Thrush Will Resume Work At Times After Suspension
NEW YORK (JTA) — The New York Times said Glenn Thrush, who was suspended following allegations he made unwanted advances toward female journalists, will resume reporting duties.
The Times said on Wednesday that Thrush will be suspended until late January and then return to work. However, the paper said Thrush, who was its prominent Washington, D.C., correspondent, will no longer be covering the White House.
The Times conducted an investigation that found that the Jewish reporter had “behaved in ways that we do not condone.”
“While we believe that Glenn has acted offensively, we have decided that he does not deserve to be fired,” said Times executive editor Dean Baquet, adding that Thrush was receiving counseling, including for substance abuse.
Last month, The Times said that it was looking into allegations made by four women that Thrush made sexual advances, including kissing and touching them.
