Head Of National Enquirer, Us Weekly Reportedly Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Facebook

Dylan Howard, who is the chief content officer of American Media Inc. -the parent company of publications like National Enquirer, Us Weeklyand Radar Online-was accused of sexually harassing women who worked in the Los Angeles office in the mid-2000s, according to a Tuesday Associated Press report.

Howard allegedly forced women to watch and listen to porn as well as describing his sexual partners in the office and inquiring about female employee's sex lives. Howard also talked about his sex life and even provided descriptions about his partners, Page and other employees said. Page had complained to the human resources department on behalf of two women reporters at the company.

A lawyer for AMI, Cam Stracher, stated that the 2012 investigation didn't show any "serious wrongdoing" and that Howard's behavior never "rose to the level of harassment that would require termination".

Howard had dispatched a reporter to uncover derogatory information about an actress who had accused Weinstein of rape, and then shared that information with Weinstein, according to the AP. He left the company soon after, but was rehired the following year with a promotion to the NY office.

Actor Terry Crews chimed in on the sexual misconduct allegations against Howard.

Howard allegedly made inappropriate comments to her and six other former employees, suggesting creating "a Facebook account on behalf of the woman's vagina", as well as forcing the women to watch or listen to graphic sex recordings.

Analysts Recommendations American Express Company (AXP)
American Express Company has $106 highest and $54 lowest target. 443,597 are owned by Douglass Winthrop Limited Liability Company. Finally, SRS Capital Advisors Inc. increased its holdings in shares of American Express by 10.3% in the 1st quarter.

A former cast member of the reality TV show "The Apprentice" who accused Donald Trump of unwanted sexual contact and filed a NY defamation lawsuit against him has thanked her lawyers and says the case should go forward.

Nevertheless, Howard left AMI shortly after the investigation was completed to serve as the editor-in-chief of Celebuzz.com.

Liz Crokin, another former reporter, alleged that Howard once asked her whether she was "going to be walking the streets tonight" when she wore heels to the office.

For his 30th birthday party, Howard invited a dozen employees to Las Vegas in January 2012 for an all-expenses-paid, three-day party he dubbed "Dildo's Dirty 30", according to a copy of the professionally designed invitation obtained by the AP.

Several of the former employees made a decision to come forward about Howard's alleged misconduct after the New Yorker and other outlets published emails revealing Howard had attempted to dig up sensitive information about one of Weinstein's alleged rape victims and share that information with Weinstein.
