NYT: We've Admonished Glenn Thrush Over His Sexual Harassment Allegations, And We're Taking Him Off the White House Beat, But We're Letting Him Keep His Job

He'll also be taking some kind of sexual harassment lessons or something.

The New York Times announced that star [whuh?! -- ace] reporter Glenn Thrush will not be fired but will be removed from the team of reporters covering the White House after he was suspended last month amid allegations he sexually harassed co-workers.

"While we believe that Glenn has acted offensively, we have decided that he does not deserve to be fired," New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet said in a statement.

...

The Times did not mention where Thrush would be assigned or who would replace him at the White House. Baquet said Thrush was undergoing counseling and substance abuse rehabilitation and would receive training "to improve his workplace conduct."

The substance he was abusing? Ass. You know what I'm talkin' 'bout.

MSNBC has not said yet whether they'd welcome him back as a Talking Thumb.

I don't get the point of taking him off the White House beat but assigning him to another one -- except for partisan political reasons. Like, the New York Times cannot keep pushing its Trump Sexual Harassment storyline when its "star" White House reporter is accused of sexual harassment.

But that's not punitive, and that doesn't protect any women. It just makes the New York Times' partisan agitation easier.
