Michael Oreskes, NPR exec, resigns amid secual harassment charges

National Public Radio's news chief Michael Oreskes resigned Wednesday following allegations he had kissed two women who were seeking jobs while he was Washington bureau chief at The New York Times in the 1990s.

NPR CEO Jarl Mohn said he asked Oreskes for his resignation "because of inappropriate behavior," in a note to NPR's staff.

Oreskes had been placed on leave Tuesday, the same day a story in The Washington Post detailed two women's stories about meeting with Oreskes to talk about job prospects and his unexpectedly kissing of them and sticking his tongue in their mouths

TVNL Comment: Someone has to publish a directory of all the powerful men who now are being accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault.  The truth is coming out in all venues of American industry and in every profession imaginable.  This has to be the turning point.  It has to stop.
