Well fortunately women to have legal means to redress companies' discriminatory pay practices, in the Lily Ledbetter Act.  And act which, if you'll recall, was fought tooth and nail by... oh who was it, again?

On a separate note: I love how Schlesinger thought putting a gag order on this story would stop any info from getting out.  "Hey all you world-class newsies: don't ask no questions, don't answer no questions, and don't talk to nobody."  Brilliant.

I presume you mean Arthur Sulzberger Jr.?

How about the DailyKos guy? He's probably less Republican.

What I'm curious about is, as a publicly traded company, isn't the NYT required to publicly disclose the pay for all their senior executives? Did they avoid having to do that for Keller for some reason?

Can you show us his voting record?

"This man treated a woman unfairly. He's not a Republican in congress, ergo both sides are bad!"

Many times I lamented that there were no pictures for an article when one would have been interesting. This article didn't need a picture.

The New York Times is the ultimate example of "Do what I  say, not what I do."  And ALWAYS has been.

God dammit... that's what I get for just replying instead of looking it up.

I don't know if the editorial staff are board members, and the board members' salary are the ones subject to disclosure.

Is it only board members? That's stupid - everyone knows boards of directors in American corporations don't do jack shiat.

According to the SEC, it is "executive pay," and that means at least certain members of the board.   https://www.sec.gov/answers/execomp.htm  Now, the NYT Company board does include Abramson's former post (http://www.nytco.com/executives/ ) so perhaps that position is not open to disclosure, or it took her a while to dig it up.

I think it's important for the media to note in every feature that they do on her that she has a vagina.
It's very important. Almost as important as them replacing her with a black man.

She ugly.

FTA: But three factors guarantee that this move will ricochet longer and more intensely than just another job shuffle atop a newspaper struggling to reinvent itself in a new era of media.


 'Ricochet' is not the term they're looking for.  The term is 'reverberate'.  It took two damn people to write this article.
