Female NYT Scribe Calls Editor ‘Passive Aggressive’

One takeaway by reporters from Politico media reporter Dylan Byers‘ much-discussed piece on NYT Executive Editor Jill Abramson is that she’s portrayed as kind of a “brusque” figure while her Managing Editor counterpart Dean Baquet is the good cop, if a little hotheaded at times.

Not so, according to one female NYT staffer who attended The New Republic‘s oparty Friday, which celebrated the opening of its new office space in Chinatown.

Byers’ piece recounted a recent tiff between Abramson and Baquet inside the the NYT newsroom that ended with Baquet slamming his hand against a wall in frustration and then storming out of the office.

“I don’t think he’s an angry man,” said the staffer at TNR‘s party directly to Byers, who was also in attendance. “He’s more passive aggressive.”
