The Boston Globe says an independent investigation has cleared the Globe's editor of charges of harassment.

The paper launched an investigation into Brian McGrory, after former Boston.com editor Hilary Sargent accused McGrory of sending her sexually suggestive and inappropriate text messages. That investigation, according to the Globe, "found that they were initiated by and reciprocated by both parties, and did not violate our anti-harassment policy."
