The New York Times has suspended one of its most high-profile reporters, White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush, after several women accused him of sexually inappropriate behavior in a Vox report.

Why it matters: Thrush is the latest in a string of powerful men in media to be accused. Several Washington reporters told Vox they were disappointed by the news, as Thrush has repeatedly presented himself as an advocate for women journalists.
