Scientific American blog editor admits to sexual harassment. | Knight Science Journalism Program at MIT
Early this afternoon, Scientific American's press spokesperson sent me the following statement from Scientific American's editor, Mariette DiChristina:Mariette DiChristina (mdichristina) on TwitterWe take allegations such as Ms. Byrne’s very seriously. A year ago we investigated the incident. Bora Zivkovic issued a statement and an apology: http://blog.coturnix.org/2013/10/15/this-happenned/. We also offered our apologies at the time and Ms. Byrne acknowledged in her blog that she was satisfied with our response. We will investigate any such incidents that are reported to us and take whatever additional action we deem necessary.So it seems Zivkovic will keep his job at Scientific American--for now.
