After a scandal at Fox, sexual harassment in the news business is making news


BURY THE LEDE: After a male colleague screamed at her for rejecting his advances, this journalist started spending more time away from the office, and her work suffered.

CLARA WAS AN 18-year-old high school student and photography intern at a newspaper in the southeastern United States when a section editor asked if she’d ever had sex. He also sent Clara (not her real name) several flirtatious texts during her two years at the paper, asking if she would come to his house and whether she “would do anything for him.” A teacher at her high school sensed something bad was happening and told her to be careful, a warning Clara didn’t heed.

The editor implied that “I wouldn’t get a recommendation from him for any other internships, or further work, if I didn’t,” says Clara, now a 23-year-old general assignment reporter at a different news outlet. “I didn’t know what else to do. I was afraid saying no would mean I wouldn’t collect any more clips.”
