Stephen Henderson was the far left opinion editor of the Detroit Free Press. He once claimed that the national anthem is racist. Now he has been fired for alleged sexual misconduct.

Editor Who Bashed The GOP Just Got Fired For Alleged Sexual Harassment
A liberal editor who bashed the GOP just got fired for alleged sexual harassment, according to a Friday report.
Stephen Henderson, the managing director of opinion and commentary at The Detroit Free Press and a Pulitzer Prize Winner, was fired for alleged sexual misconduct, the outlet reported. Henderson is accused of sexual harassment to women over the years following the results of an internal investigation.
“This is a devastatingly sad day for us at the Free Press. Stephen is a magnificent journalist and a treasured colleague who has done so much for Detroit,” said Free Press editor and Vice President Peter Bhatia. Henderson won a Pulitzer Price in 2014.
Here’s part of the statement from the Detroit Free Press:
Free Press’ Stephen Henderson terminated for misconduct
Stephen Henderson, managing director of opinion and commentary, was terminated from the Free Press on Friday, Free Press Editor and Vice President Peter Bhatia announced.
At a Dec. 6 news conference, Detroit minister W.J. Rideout III mentioned Henderson and two other members of the local media as individuals who had engaged in acts of sexual harassment. Rideout did not cite any evidence or specifics about Henderson and this week the minister’s radio show was suspended over that lack of evidence. The Free Press immediately launched an investigation and subsequently uncovered examples of inappropriate behavior by Henderson with female colleagues dating back several years.
Maybe he can get a job at CNN or MSNBC.
