New Yorker Fires Ryan Lizza for Sexual Misconduct


According to Joe Concha, a reporter for the Hill, the New Yorker has fired its longtime writer Ryan Lizza amid allegations of “improper sexual conduct.” 

The 43-year-old reporter joined the New Yorker in 2007 as a Washington correspondent. Since joining the New Yorker, Lizza has profiled important figures in politics such as former President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and Mitt Romney. 

Lizza is also an on-air political contributor for CNN

According to Politico, CNN said Lizza would not appear “while we look into this matter.”

On December 11, reporter Joe Concha confirmed on Twitter that the New Yorker has severed ties with Lizza due to the sexual misconduct accusations

Shortly after news of his release was reported, Lizza made a statement via Buzzfeed

“The New Yorker was unable to cite any company policy that was violated,” Lizza writes in the statement, adding that “this decision which was made hastily and without a full investigation of the relevant facts, was a terrible mistake.”

Lizza’s statement is contradictory to one made by the firm representing his accuser. 

According to the accuser, Lizza’s behavior did not constitute a “respectful relationship” like he claims. 

According to a list of media personalities entitled “Shitty Media Men,” Lizza allegedly sent some sexually inappropriate direct messages to people. 

Although the list is full of unconfirmed accusations, at least six names that appear have either resigned or have been fired from their positions due to the allegations made against them. 

Michael Hafford, Leon Wieseltier, Hamilton Fish, Lorin Stein, Rupert Myers, and David Corn have all left their previous positions due to accusations of misconduct, Cerno reports.
