On Thursday, the New York Times quoted its new top editor Jill Abramson as saying the paper had been a substitute for religion to her. Among the tens of thousands of words published on the paper’s website that day, these were the most interesting. Yet they subsequently disappeared from the site, apparently permanently, to be replaced by far more anodyne remarks by Abramson about how she is grateful to women colleagues and previous executive editors and wants to master this whole digital revolution thingy. What gives? I have an op-ed in the Post today on the matter.
