Calling BULLSHIT on NYT

HIGH STANDARDS?

New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. is denying the “shallow and factually incorrect” allegations that the paper’s executive editor, Jill Abramson, was fired over her complaints that she was paid less than her male colleagues. Women at the Times, Sulzberger argues in a memo to Times staffers on Saturday, “do not look for special treatment”

But the last editor (with Judy Miller) was kept on for years after he supported the invasion of Iraq based on WMD. After it was disclosed that he sat on an NSA story for over a year until after Bush was reelected. After he had been giving all of their content away for free online for years.



It just seems hard to believe that he suddenly has such high standards.

1. She is pushy, he is aggressive

always been like that. One would have thought that we left this distinction in the 20th centrury.
