Scandal hits German media giant Axel Springer

New Delhi, Oct 22 (TIWN) German media giant Axel Springer SE has suspended the editor-in-chief of Europes highest-selling tabloid, Bild, after articles in the New York Times and Der Spiegel revealed unknown details of a compliance investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct and bullying, The Guardian reported.

Axel Springer, a media empire built on digging up stories of sex and sleaze among the rich and famous, should have turned a blind eye to sex and sleaze within its own offices will hardly have come as a shock to its readers, the report said.  A chauvinistic "Wolf of Wall Street" office culture at its flagship title Bild has always been plain to see, say former staff members at the German media giant, named after its five-times-married founder who died in 1985.
