Observer Editor Kyle Pope on His ‘Necessary Tension’ with Jared Kushner

We couldn’t get Kyle Pope of The New York Observer in our Media Beat studio without asking him about his experience working with the paper’s headline-making publisher, real estate mogul Jared Kushner.

“I think there’s a necessary tension between an owner and an editor, and he and I have that. That said, I think he has been terrific for the newspaper,” Pope said. “He, himself, is fairly high-profile, and I think his profile has helped the paper.”

In the second part of our interview, the Observer editor discusses the future of the Observer in print and why he thinks the Times vs. Journal battle is “great in every way.”
