Chief Editor Of Right-Wing German Tabloid Bild Fired As Sexual Misconduct Allegations Come To Light

Axel Springer, Germany’s publishing behemoth, said on Monday that Julian Reichelt, the chief editor of Bild, the country’s best-selling daily, had been fired. The decision occurred a day after the New York Times (NYT) published an exposé detailing allegations of workplace misbehavior under Reichelt’s supervision. Reichelt, 41, was appointed as Bild’s editor-in-chief in 2018. Johannes Boie, who serves as the editor-in-chief of Springer’s conservative weekly broadsheet Welt am Sonntag, will take his position.
