Jill Abramson Recalls ‘Stern’ Meeting with Condi Rice to Pull James Risen Piece for NYTimes

Screen Shot 2014-10-13 at 14.43.29Former executive editor of The New York Times Jill Abramson sat down with Lesley Stahl for “60 Minutes Overtime” to discuss a 2003 conversation with then National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice who asked her to stop a piece from being published and prevent further coverage of the CIA’s efforts to thwart Iranian nuclear initiatives by the paper’s then national security reporter James Risen.

“She had a legal yellow notebook on her lap with lots of notes on it, and once I had taken a seat across from her, she barely looked up,” said Abramson. “She basically read in a very stern manner from her notes on this legal pad, which were just point after point about why this story would be damaging to the national security. I don’t think I uttered, Lesley, in this meeting, much more than ‘hello,’ and ‘I will think about what you said.’” Read more

Hillary Clinton Responds to Criticisms by Jill Abramson on Media Expectations

logo2During an interview with guest host John Harwood on NPR’s “On Point,” Hillary Clinton admitted that she might expect more than she should from her relationships with members of the media.

Clinton’s comments were made in response to criticism by Jill Abramson in a POLITICO Magazine piece in which the former New York Times editor said, “Hillary is incredibly unrealistic about journalists…She expects you to be 100 percent in her corner, especially women journalists. She got angry with me because when I became the top-ranking woman at the New York Times, she thought I should be loyal. An editor is going to be independent, always.”

Abramson’s comments were made more than two months after the media blitz surrounding the release of Hard Choices began, first with a taped television interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, a live interview with Robin Roberts for “Good Morning America,” a joint interview by Fox News’ Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren, and a slew of other interviews, conversations, town halls, and book signings in Washington and throughout the country.

She’s Backkk! Jill Abramson Remembers Arthur Gelb for The Huffington Post

abramsonA week after being fired as executive editor of The New York Times, Jill Abramson has resurfaced, penning a piece in remembrance of former NYTimes managing editor Arthur Gelb for The Huffington Post.

“His eyes danced when he told stories about dreaming up the multi-sectioned New York Times,” Abramson remembers of Gelb in the piece. “His daring creativity helped save the newspaper at an earlier secular choke point that was every bit as life-threatening as the transition from print to digital happening now.”

Former NYT Executive Editor Jill Abramson Delivers Wake Forest Commencement Address

This morning at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC, ousted New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson delivered the university’s commencement address to graduates and their guests.

She opened her speech poking fun that her remarks have garnered so much media interest.

“I think the only real news here today is your graduation from this great university…I’m impressed that your achievements have attracted so much media attention, as well they should.”

Abramson’s speech intertwined the topics of resilience and family, recalling, “Very early last Thursday, my sister called me. She said ‘I know dad would be as proud of you today as the day you became executive editor of The New York Times.’ I’d been fired the previous day. So I knew what she was trying to say. It meant more to our father to see us deal with a set back and try to bounce back, than to watch how we handled our successes.”

Dean Baquet to Replace Jill Abramson as Executive Editor of NYTimes

The New York TimesAccording to The New York Times, Executive Editor Jill Abramson is “unexpectedly leaving” her position as top editor at the newspaper and will be replaced by managing editor Dean Baquet. Abramson served as executive editor since 2011 and was the first woman in the role.

According to New York Times coverage of the announcement, “The reasons for the switch were not immediately clear.”

Baquet will be the first African-American executive editor of the newspaper. He returned to the Times as chief of its Washington bureau and an assistant managing editor in 2007 after being fired the previous November as editor of the Los Angeles Times for refusing to cut jobs from his newsroom.
