New Republic publisher resigns after harassment allegations

November 3, 2017
Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — The publisher of The New Republic, Hamilton Fish, has resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment.

In a company memo shared Friday with The Associated Press, magazine owner Win McCormack wrote that Fish's resignation was effective immediately and that an internal investigation would continue. Fish, who joined The New Republic in 2016, had been placed on leave of absence last week. He is a former publisher of The Nation.

Fish is among a wave of celebrities and media figures stepping down or being fired since reports in October of alleged harassment and assault by Harvey Weinstein. Others departing include author and former NBC analyst Mark Halperin, former NPR chief editor Michael Oreskes and former New Republic literary editor Leon Wieseltier.

Fish did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
