- Veteran reporter ‘deeply sorry’ after five women say he sexually harassed them
- Alleged incidents occurred at ABC in early 2000s
Prominent MSNBC journalist Mark Halperin – co-author of a best-selling book about Barack Obama – has been suspended from his role as a contributor to the network following charges from five women who claimed he sexually harassed them while he was an ABC News executive.
MSNBC said on Thursday it found Halperin’s conduct as described in a CNN story “very troubling” and that the veteran political reporter would be off the air until questions about his past are fully understood. Halperin has apologized for what he termed inappropriate behavior.
