ITN: Paris Review Editor Resigns for Misconduct

Recommended Posts



"At times in the past, I blurred the personal and the professional in ways that were, I now recognize, disrespectful of my colleagues and our contributors, and that made them feel uncomfortable or demeaned,” he wrote. “I am very sorry for any hurt I caused them.”

The board of the magazine was set to meet Thursday to discuss its internal investigation, which began in October and was conducted by a subcommittee formed by the board, according to a person familiar with the internal investigation. Lawyers from Debevoise & Plimpton, the publication’s longtime counsel, as well as members of the subcommittee spoke to current and former employees, and also received complaints from at least two female writers who said they had negative encounters with Mr. Stein, 44. The board had yet to decide what action to take in the matter.


As a side note, famed novelist/memoirist/journalist Roxane Gay hinted at this on Twitter, when Paris Review published the article "What To Do With The Art of Monstrous Men?" by Claire Dederer.

I was wondering if France had that problem...I wouldn't worry about it, there's a LOT of men getting busted essentially for being a little too Unkle Feelballs and Unkle Horndog  in animation, film, TV, and publishing. It's a shame, but facts are facts......Thankfully, for the most part, I behave myself around women, as should all men in showbusiness. It's important not to demean women.

Jeez, can't anyone in the animation have attractive female friends without MOLESTING THEM?? God I hope so, Not all girls want their editors to be fuck buddies. Many women just want friends. Someone to talk to who won't abuse them, and ask permission before you go on a date. IS  that really that difficult to achieve, a PLATONIC male-female friendship?
