Ken Auletta of The New Yorker reports that, “several weeks ago,” fired New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson “discovered that her pay and her pension benefits as both executive editor and, before that, managing editor, were considerably less than the pay and pension benefits of Bill Keller, the male editor whom she replaced in both jobs.”

“She confronted the top brass,” an associate of Abramson told Auletta, which “may have fed into the management’s narrative that she was ‘pushy.’”
