“Sulzberger Needs a PR Advisor More Than He Needs a New Editor”

Hamilton Nolan:

Even if, to play devil’s advocate, this decision turns out to have been a good one, Sulzberger has already blown it. Had he allowed Abramson a graceful exit, been open and honest about the reasons for the move, and taken the blame for the mistakes that created the situation in the first place, the publisher might have emerged from this looking like a competent manager. Instead, he emerges from it looking like a befuddled, craven sexist.
