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.

NYT D.C. Bureau All Shook Up

David Leonhardt is out as The New York Times DC Bureau Chief and Carolyn Ryan is in, according to Dylan Byers:

Leonhardt, who was appointed bureau chief shortly after Jill Abramson became executive editor, served in that position for just two years. A Pulitzer Prize-winning economic columnist, Leonhardt was seen as a gifted writer with little editing experience, and thus an unnatural fit to lead the Times’ bureau.

Leonhardt is now expected to oversee a column that will focus on data and polling, effectively replacing Nate Silver, the famed statistician who decamped to ESPN earlier this year. One source described Leonhardt as the paper’s “next Nate Silver,” another as “the new Nate.”

A memo from Executive Editor Jill Abramson also details “an early morning news tip sheet that sets up the Washington day for our readers, much as the popular New York Today report does for our readers in the metropolitan area.” Carl Hulse will be the Managing Editor of the tip sheet and also Chief Washington Correspondent. Former Chief Washington Correspondent David Sanger will now cover cyber warfare and national security. Both Leonhardt’s column and Hulse’s tip sheet have yet to be named. All of these changes will be effective December 15th.

Full memo after the jump.

Big Get: NYT’s Berke To Politico

berke100This just in…

NYT‘s Rick Berke joins Politico as Executive Editor, which was Jim VandeHei‘s old position before he got the fancier title of President and CEO.

See the sentimental memo NYT‘s Jill Abramson via Politico‘s Dylan Byers here.

Hey Politico, No Hard Feelings, XOXO, NYT

Politico and the NYT haven’t been on the best of terms as of late. But kind of like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, friends sometimes get jealous and combative. Back in late April, Politico published a piece by media writer Dylan Byers about a newsroom on the outs with Executive Editor Jill Abramson. The Daily Beast eventually reported that Abramson shed tears over the story. Byers retweeted that news and Gawker called him the “grossest reporter” for the perceived brazenness of his RT. The NYT followed up this week by writing a petty-toned piece about the new Allbritton-acquired CapitalNY. In it, they misspelled Byers’ name.

Chances are high it was an innocent mistake and they corrected it quick enough. But today the NYT struck back with a note of politeness by issuing a formal correction about it.

 

Correction: Unfortunately we’re tired as hell today and misspelled the word “feelings” in the headline. It has been fixed to reflect the correct spelling.

 

NYT Smacks Politico: Jill’s Revenge?

It’s tricky to write a story about a new competitor and not come off as a tad defensive and afraid.

The NYT, which has “obsessively” covered every “twitch and shiver” of Politico‘s existence, has a piece out by Leslie Kaufman that appears to be some sort of preemptive strike against the new Robert Allbritton publication – CapitalNY – that claims to be taking aim at the powerful and complex New York media machine that includes the NYT.

To be sure, the story, which published Sunday, adopts a snide tone against Politico. Kaufman describes Allbritton Communications as “the cash-rich media company that owns Politico, which obsessively covers every twitch and shiver of Washington.”

Every inch of the story oozes with the notion that Allbritton – like the failure spinoff pub TBD – may have bitten off more than he can chew. “Is this Jill’s revenge?” asks a Washington media insider on condition of anonymity and referring to NYT Executive Editor Jill Abramson. “She was clearly outraged at that Politico piece on her controversial management style. What better way to hit back than to order up a condescending piece about their new pet project. What’s weird is the purpose seems so transparent.” That story, published in April, can be found here.

The downside of the piece: the NYT‘s smacks the newly owned operation down before they’ve even had a chance to find their sea legs. The upside: People like an underdog, they may want a scrappy pub like CapitalNY to show up the NYT.

On an amusing note, they spelled Politico Dylan Byers‘ surname like this: “Byars.” The mistake was corrected by 8:45 a.m.

And something else: The writer explains that Byers jumped in to help CapitalNY “post news” but never explains that he and CapitalNY writer Joe Pompeo beat the NYT on the story of Rick Stengel leaving TIME for the State Department. This story, like the one they published last week, fails to credit Politico/CapitalNY for that story, although sources tell us that the NYT astonishingly explained to them why they wouldn’t be crediting them. Byers and Pompeo contacted NYT Media Desk Editor Bruce Headlam on the matter. Bruce replied to Pompeo’s emails and took Byers’ call.
