More on Jill Abramson and The New York Times

From The New Yorker: “Jill Abramson and The Times: What Went Wrong?” by Ken Auletta

Buy me a Coffee! If you find this post or this site interesting, and would like to see more, buy me a coffee. While I may actually buy coffee, I’ll probably buy books to review.

There is one more question: Why did the Times, which so heralded the hiring of its first female executive editor, terminate Abramson in such a brutal fashion? What else happened between Thompson’s April 28th plea for her to stay longer and her termination by Sulzberger, eleven days later, on Friday, May 9th?

She plays o' the viol-de-gamboys, speaks three or four languages word for word without book, hath all the good gifts of nature, knows a hawk from a handsaw, and can see a church by daylight. The rest is subject to fancy.
