Skip to comments.Arianna Huffington Ignored Sexual Misconduct at The Huffington Post

When Susan Fowler rocked Ubers world with a meticulous account of the companys sexual harassment and gender discrimination issues, the ride-sharing service turned to its only female board member to help clean up its culture (and its image). Arianna Huffington was perfectly poised to position herself as the feminist savior who would advocate for Ubers womenshe oversaw the subsequent Eric Holder investigation, and promised that no brilliant jerks will be allowed, and no one will be protected because they are top performers. But being a powerful woman with a stake in a company, and its profits, doesnt mean Huffington was actually the best choice to champion women struggling to make their voices heard.
Huffingtons well-documented history of fostering a toxic work culture, and failing to address inappropriate behavior from a brilliant jerk in her own midst, calls into question the sincerity behind her pledge to help bring positive change to Ubers culture. Most notably, her history with a former managing editor whose transfer to launch HuffPost India was later revealed to be result of an HR investigation into whether he had sexually harassed multiple young women in the New York office. Gizmodo recently revisited those allegations and not only independently confirmed that the investigation was indeed the reason for that managing editors transfer, but that Huffington knew about his actions before they were reported to HR, according to a former employee with direct knowledge of the investigation.

You know what - I’ve gotten to where I simply don’t care about sexual “misconduct” any more. If no laws were broken, I no longer care. This whole thing is getting nuts.

Note: I do care if it relates to the job they are hired/elected to do.
Remember, the man after God’s own heart also murdered a man to get his wife. i.e. looking at people’s distant past is not what counts. Where they’ve ended up, character-wise is what is relevant.
these self appointed effete elite media types would be shocked and have the vapors if they discovered sex at the playboy mansion.
But its OK for demon dressed perverted trannies to twerk with children at the library...
