Laurene Powell Jobs is Steve Jobs' widow. I suspect she is not amused by Mr. Wieseltier's behavior.
Leon Wieseltier, a prominent editor at The New Republic for three decades who was preparing to unveil a new magazine next week, apologized on Tuesday for "offenses against some of my colleagues in the past" after several women accused him of sexual harassment and inappropriate advances.
As those allegations came to light, Laurene Powell Jobs, a leading philanthropist whose for-profit organization, Emerson Collective, was backing Mr. Wieseltier's endeavor, decided to pull the plug on it.
"Upon receiving information related to past inappropriate workplace conduct, Emerson Collective ended its business relationship with Leon Wieseltier, including a journal planned for publication under his editorial direction," the organization said in a statement on Tuesday. "The production and distribution of the journal has been suspended."
After Mr. Wieseltier's departure from The New Republic, he landed on his feet, becoming the Isaiah Berlin senior fellow in culture and policy at the Brookings Institution as well as a contributing writer and critic at The Atlantic magazine. His friendship with Ms. Powell Jobs helped lead to Emerson Collective's purchasing a majority stake in The Atlantic this past summer.
