Ms. Abramson was not an outside hire, nor an unknown entity within the NY Times organization. From the outside I have to think that both parties lost out on this one, and that clearly in the end both parties will prevail. God bless the Times, and great journalists. We need you in any context that works.

Excuse me for the double post, but did you really have to choose that frame as the poster image for the video? Really?

She may be a great journalist, but that doesn't make her even a decent manager by default. I worked in newspapers for over 15 years, and good journalists don't tend to end up doing well in management positions. I certainly don't want anything to do with managing. Paper pushing is what I avoided when I chose journalism as a profession.


Do yourself a favor Ms. Abramson and do what you're good at. Forget ego. Forget money (a sure sign of a true journalist is that they do exactly that) and forget status. They won't make you half as happy as being a good reporter who can change people's lives for the better.

What's with all the Jill Abramson stories at Re/Code today? There were at least four by several different Re/Code reporters in the Re/Code headlines email I got. How is this related to technology, especially when the Times is old media?


Ms. Abramson may have gotten a raw deal at the Times, but I don't see how an employment spat affects the vast majority of people.
