Politico: NYT Boss Lady Too Bossy
Politico's Dylan Byers writes an unsourced hatchet job about New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson's scandalous lack of warm-fuzziness; Twitter media watchers see it for what it is.

- — Jeremy Littau (@JeremyLittau)Tue, Apr 23 2013 19:37:55Why is Baquet portrayed as victim after throwing a temper tantrum while in same breath Abramson is accused of doing same? Sexist framing.
- — Lauren Rabaino (@laurenrabaino)Tue, Apr 23 2013 18:55:24I wonder how the language in this story (and sentiment in the newsroom) would be different if Abramson was a man: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/new-york-times-turbulence-90544.html?hp=t1_3 …3/04/…

- — yung dilettante (@rawiya)Wed, Apr 24 2013 04:48:08god this politico story on jill abramson is like one step away from asking whether she's pmsing http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/new-york-times-turbulence-90544.html …3/04/…
- — Rachel Schallom (@rschallom)Tue, Apr 23 2013 19:48:11Some of the turbulence at the NYT is likely valid, but would Jill Abramson get this much criticism if she was a man? http://politi.co/14NRyZP

- — Lisa McIntire (@LisaMcIntire)Tue, Apr 23 2013 19:17:44I struggle to find any specific behavior of Abramson's that is critiqued here other than the tone of her voice: http://politi.co/13ZqsOS

- — Lisa McIntire (@LisaMcIntire)Tue, Apr 23 2013 19:25:15"Jill Abramson is IMPOSSIBLE, guys. Sometimes she opens her mouth and says things and makes decisions. WHO DOES SHE THINK SHE IS???"
- — Meg Heckman (@meg_heckman)Tue, Apr 23 2013 19:04:04This Politico story on Jill Abramson is odd, especially if you imagine the same piece written about a man. http://www.politico.com/story/2013/04/new-york-times-turbulence-90544.html …3/04/…
