At press time, NBC News had suspended contributor Mark Halperin pending an investigation into allegations by five women that he sexually harassed them during his stint as an executive ABC News. Showtime, for which Halperin is co-host of the series The Circus, was evaluating its relationship with him. CNN broke the story Wednesday night, and NBC News responded yesterday with a statement: “We find the story and the allegations very troubling. Mark Halperin is leaving his role as a contributor until the questions around his past conduct are fully understood.” Halperin responded with a statement: “During this period, I did pursue relationships with women that I worked with, including some junior to me…I now understand from these accounts that my behavior was inappropriate and caused others pain. For that, I am deeply sorry and I apologize.”
