Navy Commander Accuses Miami Herald Reporter Of Sexual Harassment

miami.pngFishbowlDC reported exclusively Friday on a sexual harassment case that involves a role reversal of sorts. Not only does it involve a man filing suit against a woman, but the sexual harassment allegations were brought by a Navy commander against a reporter.

According to FishbowlDC‘s report:

US Navy Commander Jeffrey D. Gordon has filed a sexual harassment complaint against the Miami Herald‘s Carol Rosenberg.

FishbowlDC obtained a copy of the July 22, 2009 letter addressed to Miami Herald Senior VP and Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal. In the complaint, Gordon calls for a “thorough investigation” to put an end to Rosenberg’s “appalling behavior” that includes comments about the Commander’s sexual orientation.

The complaint outlines examples of Rosenberg’s alleged “abusive and degrading, comments of an explicitly sexual nature.”

We spied some bigwigs of New York media, like Bill Keller celebrating The New York Times‘ five award haul (“I feel pretty damn good,” he told FishbowlNY) and Newsweek editor Jon Meacham, a Pulitzer Prize winner himself for his biography of Andrew Jackson, “American Lion.”

There were also some representatives from smaller press outlets, like Mark Mahoney of The Post-Star in Glens Falls, N.Y., who was awarded the Pulitzer for editorial writing.

Overall, the mood of the day was celebratory but somber (and the rainy weather didn’t help). Pulitzer Prize board co-chair, Anders Gyllenhaal (shown above), touched briefly on the sad state of traditional media today in his opening remarks and noted, although this was the first year that online-only publications could submit entries for Pulitzers, that he believed that online journalism still has a ways to go.

“Start-ups are not yet delivering the kind of probing, authoritative work that journalism’s service to the community should be about,” he said.
