Lizza had been the New Yorker’s Washington correspondent since 2007. He is known for a memorable July interview with Anthony Scaramucci , in which the former White House communications director bashed colleagues in vulgar language. Scaramucci was ousted shortly afterward.
The New Yorker magazine said Monday it has cut ties with well-known political reporter Ryan Lizza for alleged sexual misconduct.
The magazine recently learned Lizza had “engaged in what we believe was improper sexual conduct,” a spokeswoman said. After reviewing the matter, it cut ties with the reporter.
Lizza is also a contributor on CNN. A spokeswoman for the cable news network said he will not appear on air while it looks into the matter.
