So, now that Thrush has been suspended from the New York Times, will MSNBC — where he’s worked as a contributor since May — follow suit?

More from The Hill:
An MSNBC spokesperson tells The Hill the network will await the outcome of the New York Times investigation into sexual harassment allegations against White House correspondent Glenn Thrush before making any decisions on the journalist.
Thrush, 50, was signed by the network on May 1 as a contributor.”We’re awaiting the outcome of the Times’ investigation. He currently has no scheduled appearances,” reads the statement from MSNBC.
Wow. Way to step up, MSNBC.

Have @KasieDC do an investigative piece on Thrush. I'm sure it was just mere mock groping.
