NYT Reporter (Exposed As Hack By WikiLeaks) Suspended After Sexual Misconduct Claims
New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush has been suspended from the paper after details emerged about his alleged “bad judgment around young women journalists.”
According to Bianca Padró Ocasio, a friend of one of the women Thrush made unwanted sexual advances towards, the New York Times reporter was well known for telling others he was a mentor to aspiring women and was disgusted by the toxic culture created by sexual harassers.
Vox recounts multiple incidents of Thrush’s alleged sexual misconduct.
Thrush and the young woman met at her colleague’s going-away party at a bar near the Politico newsroom, she told me, and shared a few rounds of drinks in a booth. The night, she said, ended on a Washington street corner, where Thrush left her in tears after she resisted his advances.
The encounter was troubling enough to the woman that her friend Bianca Padró Ocasio, also 23 and a journalist, confronted Thrush about his behavior via text message the next day.
“I want to make sure you don’t lure young women aspiring journalists into those situations ever again,” she texted. “So help me out here. How can I do that?”

Another woman says Thrush made aggressive and unwanted sexual advances towards her during a night at D.C. bar “Continental.”
On that night five years ago, I joined Thrush and a handful of other reporters for a few rounds at the Continental, a Politico hangout in Rosslyn, Virginia. At first, nothing seemed strange, until the crowd had dwindled down to Thrush, me, and one other female colleague.
Thrush tossed a $20 bill at her and told her to take a cab and leave us, “the grown-ups,” alone. He slid into my side of the booth, blocking me in. I was wearing a skirt, and he put his hand on my thigh. He started kissing me. I pulled myself together and got out of there, shoving him on my way out.
In the morning, Thrush sent me an apologetic email. I didn’t save it, but I recall it as similar to the one he would later send to Padró Ocasio’s friend in June. He said he was sorry, but he didn’t say for what, exactly.
“The New York Times said on Monday that it was suspending Glenn Thrush, one of its most prominent reporters, after he was accused of sexually inappropriate behavior,” reports the Times’ Sydney Ember.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported, Glenn Thrush was caught colluding with the Hillary Clinton Campaign during the 2016 election.
Thrush was sharing his articles with John Podesta before they went to print.
The New York Times knew Thrush was a dishonest “hack” (his words) but hired him anyway.
Maggie Haberman was also a Hillary Clinton operative during the 2016 election.
Thanks to Wikileaks the entire world knows she is a leftwing hack.
