WAR ON WOMEN?: REPORT SAYS NYT’S FIRST FEMALE EDITOR OUSTED FOR ASKING FOR ‘EQUAL PAY’
Breitbart ^ | May 14, 2014 | By Tony Lee

Posted on 05/14/2014 5:43:44 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The New York Times, which has actively helped Democrats and the White House perpetuate the phony "war on women" campaign against Republicans, reportedly fired its female executive editor because she complained about pay inequality at the so-called "paper of record."

On Wednesday, the Times announced that Dean Baquet, the managing editor, would replace Jill Abramson, becoming the paper's first black executive editor. Abramson was promoted to executive editor with much fanfare in 2011.

"Several weeks ago," according to The New Yorker, "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."

Another associate reportedly said that Abramson also found out that a male who was a former deputy managing editor "made more money than she did." When Abramson "had a lawyer make polite inquiries about the pay and pension disparities," it reportedly "set them off" and led management to fire her. On Friday, Sulzberger reportedly told Abramson that it was time to make "a change" and made it official.

A "close associate" of hers told The New Yorker's Ken Auletta that Abramson "confronted the top brass" about the pay disparity, and Abramson's pay gap was reportedly closed after she complained, but, "to women at an institution that was once sued by its female employees for discriminatory practices, the question brings up ugly memories."

NYT Editor Rejects ‘Atmosphere of Scandal,Public Wants to Give Obama Credit for Improving Economy’

News Busters ^ | June 02, 2013 | Brent Baker
Posted on 6/5/2013 6:55:07 AM by IbJensen

See no scandal, report no scandal. Jill Abramson, Executive Editor of the New York Times, came down to DC on Sunday to defend President Obama on the scandals and the economy, stressing the leaks cases is the only supposed scandal she cares about as she contended “I’m just not sure” the leaks cases, IRS and Benghazi “come together and create, you know — quote, unquote — ‘an atmosphere of scandal.’”

An atmosphere the New York Times is working to prevent.

Asked by Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer about how “nobody seems to know anything” in the administration, so the scandals may go beyond just the leaks prosecutions involving journalists, Abramson hit back: “I’m not sure how much any of these particular issues has absorbed the American public who I think are hoping against hope that the economy is at last showing some strength and maybe giving the President some credit for the fact that there are some hopeful signs.”

Schieffer responded: “You wouldn’t say that you think it’s not something we ought to be concerned about?”

Abramson skipped IRS and Benghazi as she affirmed how “clearly I’m very concerned about the leak cases,” explaining that’s “why I came here to talk to you this morning,” but insisted: “I’m just not sure, you know, they come together and create, you know — quote, unquote — ‘an atmosphere of scandal.’”

the irony is, in a normal world, the times has a legitimate reason to pay her less than her predecessor. less time on the job. which would account for the disparity in the pension benefit also. but, since the times chose to overlook those type of differences in the 77% argument, they forfeit that right now.

Bossy didn’t work this time did it? Management was probably looking for an excuse to get rid of her and she handed them an excuse on a golden platter.

If they pay the new guy at Keller’s level, that will confirm the sex discrimination—and of they don’t, it’ll be racial discrimination.

equal to whom?

and madam, do you have identical background and experience of whomever you want equal pay?

did you take time off for children, where you weren’t working? are there gaps in your work record? did you hold lesser positions than who you want to be compared against? did you do just as important and critical work as whom you want to be paid equally?

i am so sick of this crap.

She recently made some ‘not so nice’ comments about the Obama Administration. I suspect that had more to do with her firing... The Times is NOT known for diversity of thought...

But never fear, she was replaced by a black man.

Maybe she was guilty of facecrime??

1984 : The Novel
Book One, Chapter 5

“It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself—anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face… was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime…”

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?… Has it ever occurred to your, Winston, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?…The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact, there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Orthodoxy means not thinking—not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.” - Syme
