  1. Wage Gap Dispute Reportedly Linked to Jill Abramson’s NYT Ouster

    Reporters at The New York Times were left reeling yesterday after the newspaper’s first female executive editor, Jill Abramson, was suddenly replaced. Her former deputy, Dean Baquet, has become the first African-American head of the 163-year-old newspaper. Publisher Arthur Sulzberger said Abramson left over an “issue with management.” While Abramson’s brusque management style was known to irk some, The New Yorker reports that she had a falling out over a pay gap after discovering her male predecessor earned more than she did.
