Mark Halperin got a second chance. He isn’t the only one.

In late October 2017, as the sexual-abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein reverberated across the landscape of American power, five women told CNN’s Oliver Darcy that Mark Halperin, a high-profile political journalist, had harassed them at work. The allegations dated to Halperin’s time at ABC News, where he worked as political director from the late 1990s through the mid-2000s: three of the women said Halperin pressed his genitals against them, and others said he propositioned them for sex on the campaign trail. Two days after his initial story, Darcy relayed the accounts of four more women, one of whom claimed Halperin masturbated in front of her in his office, another of whom said Halperin threw her against the window of a restaurant, tried forcibly to kiss her, and then, after she rebuffed him, called her and said she would never work in media or politics. At least three other women made allegations against Halperin, bringing the total to a dozen. In the wake of these claims, NBC, MSNBC, and Showtime all axed Halperin as a commentator. HBO scrapped plans to base a miniseries on his books; Penguin dropped a new book project. At the time, Halperin’s career seemed like it was over.

He wasn’t just shouting into the void: last fall, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of Morning Joe, where Halperin was a frequent... Continue reading at 'Columbia Journalism Review'
