Pay had no part in New York Times editor’s ouster, publisher says

NEW YORK — Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the publisher of the New York Times and chairman of its parent company, is denying media reports that executive editor Jill Abramson’s dismissal had to do with her complaints over unequal pay.

The Times replaced Abramson Wednesday and promoted managing editor Dean Baquet to executive editor. The decision was made due to Abramson’s newsroom management, according to Sulzberger. Abramson had spent two-and-a-half years in the newspaper’s highest editorial position.
