NYT: Tattoo This, Jill Abramson!

th-1The struggling New York Times has fired executive editor Jill Abramson, and it appears not to have come as a shock to anyone but Jill Abramson.

New Yorker:

At the annual City University Journalism School dinner, on Monday, Dean Baquet, the managing editor of the New York Times, was seated with Arthur Sulzberger, Jr., the paper’s publisher. At the time, I did not give a moment’s thought to why Jill Abramson, the paper’s executive editor, was not at their table. Then, at 2:36 P.M. on Wednesday, an announcement from the Times hit my e-mail, saying that Baquet would replace Abramson, less than three years after she was appointed the first woman in the top job. Baquet will be the first African-American to lead the Times. …

As with any such upheaval, there’s a history behind it. Several weeks ago, I’m told, Abramson discovered that her pay and her pension benefits as both executive editor and, before that, as managing editor were considerably less than the pay and pension benefits of Bill Keller, the male editor whom she replaced in both jobs. “She confronted the top brass,” one close associate said, and this may have fed into the management’s narrative that she was “pushy,” a characterization that, for many, has an inescapably gendered aspect. …

In a reflection of the fractious relationship that Baquet and others had with Abramson, the Times reported that Baquet, speaking to the newsroom after his appointment, “praised Ms. Abramson for teaching him ‘the value of great ambition’ and then added that John Carroll, whom he worked for at The Los Angeles Times, ‘told me that great editors can also be humane editors.’”

Ouch! That baby crossed the plate in the high two-digits and right down the middle.

By many accounts Jill Abramson was “stubborn, condescending, difficult to please and rude to underlings,” and it became her undoing. This is a clear blow to the income inequality bell ringing being touted by the Left. You can complain all you want on the inequities in life, but in the end you are only worth what others think of you.

I guess this means that New York Times tattoo Jill ran out and got wasn’t such a good idea, after all. It’ll probably have to go. Unless of course Abramson is intending to ink her entire curriculum vitae on her obnoxious liberal @$$.

UPDATE: Here’s another take by Robert Stacy McCain.
