Jill Abramson, the executive editor of The New York Times, is unexpectedly leaving her post.
Abramson, the first woman but hardly the first Jew to hold the top editorial position at the paper, lasted less than three years. The Times did not explain the reason for her departure. She will be replaced by Dean Baquet, the managing editor.
Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the Times’ publisher and chairman of its parent company, announced the change in the Times newsroom on Wednesday afternoon. Sulzberger said Abramson’s departure was related to “an issue with management in the newsroom” and did not have to do with the quality of journalism during her tenure. Abramson was not present for the announcement.
Abramson, 60, had worked at The Wall Street Journal for about a decade before joining the Times in 1997. She worked as an investigative reporter and Washington bureau chief before being named executive editor in May 2011.
During her tenure as editor, revenue from readers and subscribers surpassed advertising for the first time. The Times had 760,000 digital subscribers at the end of 2013

Political Strategist Elie Pieprz and Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan join Yishai to “talk Pesach” and and share their tips for the dreaded Passover preparations(i.e. clean early, clean often.) The issue of food, of course, comes up: What tastes better — Pesach lazagna or matza Pizza? Why do Sephardi Jews eat things during the holiday that Ashkenazi Jews do not? And what the heck is “gebrachats”? Then, Ayala Shapiro, aged 11, was critically wounded by a Molotov cocktail hurled by a terrorist. Ayala, who suffered third-degree burns over 40% of her body, is facing a long, complicated and painful road to recovery, after days of hovering between life and death. But you can help. Tune in to hear how. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to get ready for the BIG Shabbat — “Shabbat HaGadaol” — before Passover. Tune in to find out more!
Seth Frantzman and Mati Wagner, op-ed and editorial page editors (respectively) at The Jerusalem Post, join Yishai in-studio. Seth just returned to Israel from a food-filled and uber-capitalist trip to Dubai. Mati just came back from a fact-finding mission about slain Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman. Having both spent election night at the headquarters of the Joint Arab List in Nazareth, they discuss the accusations of bigotry against PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Then, the recent J Street conference featured remarks by White House Chief-of-Staff Denis McDonough, who said that Israel is engaged in a 50-year occupation which “must end.” The Jews in the audience clapped wildly and showed great excitement when the potential advent of a Palestinian state was discussed. Finally, Alan Elsner, Vice President for Communications at J Street, an organization that identifies itself as the “political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans,” joins Yishai from Washington to explain.
In the 1950s, the Israel Defense Forces engaged in retaliatory missions after terrorist attacks. Was this a legitimate expression of defense? Is the spirit of robust deterrence still alive in Israel? Yishai shares an incredible story with Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan about the three kidnapped youths who were massacred last summer, and how justice came to their killers. Jeremy also weighs in on potential foreign “punishment” of Israel and provides coalition updates.
Then, Pastor Dave McGarrah and Charlie Schiffman, co-hosts of the popular radio show, “The Teacher and the Preacher,” join Yishai in-studio. In Israel on tour with his flock, Pastor Dave, a Christian, and Charlie, a Jew, prove that Christian-Jewish relations can reach a new level. Listen in!

Yishai rants about Ahmed Tibi, leader of the Arab Movement for Change, an Israeli political party, who said, “We thought the Israeli public wanted change, but instead acted in a tribal way, and therefore we are left with Netanyahu.” Then, Zeev Ben-Shachar, director of Israel Education at Jerusalem U., joins Yishai in-studio to deconstruct the techniques of the Israel-haters and to lay out a strategy for fighting anti-Israel bias on campuses. Finally, Rabbi Mike Feuer and Yishai take the studio outside on a beautiful Jerusalem day to talk about the challenging issues of faith when things don’t go our way and the resulting anger. They also provide an “intro” to the Book of Leviticus and discuss the challenging issue of animal sacrifice.
Yishai is joined first by Knesset Insider Jeremy Saltan and then by VOI Bureau Chief Daniel Seaman to discuss how PM Benjamin Netanyahu beat the New York Times, the V-15 campaign, US President Barack Obama — and how the strategies of his enemies backfired. Then, David P. Goldman (known as “Spengler” in his erudite columns), is Senior Fellow at the London Center for Policy Research, Associate Fellow at the Middle East Forum and author of “How Civilizations Die (and Why Islam is Dying, Too”. He joins Yishai to discuss the hegemonic appetite of Iran, America’s explicit acceptance of it, and the mandate that PM Netanyahu has received from Israel’s voters to fight it.
Finally, Alex Traiman joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the upcoming coalition and the spiritual significance of the Likud victory, using the Purim miracle as a parable.
