US editor Michael Oreskes 'kissed women' in business meetings
Women working in US media have said a senior editor kissed them without their consent during business meetings. Michael Oreskes, 63, has been placed on indefinite leave by the National Public Radio network in response. The incidents allegedly occurred in the late 1990s, when Mr Oreskes worked at the New York Times. One of the women said that while she met Mr Oreskes in the hope of getting a job with the New York Times, he suggested that they eat room service lunch in a hotel, before he unexpectedly kissed her and "Slipped his tongue into her mouth". A third woman, a current NPR employee, has detailed a formal complaint she filed against Mr Oreskes with the network back in 2015 after a business advice session she had with him turned into a long evening dinner.
