Emily Steel writes in a piece in Saturday’s New York Times that she uncovered at least four settlements by Vice Media “involving allegations of sexual harassment or defamation against Vice employees, including its current president,” as well as dozens of accounts of sexual misconduct.

Here’s an overview of her piece:

In a statement, Vice Media said that it had “failed as a company to create a safe and inclusive workplace” and acknowledged that it had allowed a  detrimental “boy’s club” culture to flourish at the company.

One former Vice employee, Helena Donahue, wrote of her own experiences in a Twitter thread:

Very believable, actually. Just look at the culture of sexual harassment that was allowed to thrive in both progressive Hollywood and at PBS.
