A managing editor at the New York Daily News is under investigation for sexual harassment allegations, according to a report Monday.
Robert Moore, an editor of the Daily News since 2011 who previously wrote for the publication, is being investigated for alleged sexual harassment after being probed by the Chicago-based parent company Tronc after a sexual misconduct complaint was filed in December, reported the New York Post.
Moore allegedly created a sexualized atmosphere and punished women who did not want to give him attention, reported NPR.
Moore previously helped the Daily News investigative reporting team led by reporter Sarah Ryley that received a 2017 Pulitzer Prize Award for uncovering abusive practices by the New York Police Department against minorities. The team also won the James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism. He celebrated the win on Twitter in 2018.
