As with any such upheaval, there’s a history behind it. Several weeks ago, I’m told, Abramson discovered that her pay and her pension benefits as both executive editor and, before that, as managing editor were considerably less than the pay and pension benefits of Bill Keller, the male editor whom she replaced in both jobs. ‘She confronted the top brass,’one close associate said, and this may have fed into the management’s narrative that she was ‘pushy,’ a characterization that, for many, has an inescapably gendered aspect.

The New York Times' Most Popular Story of 2013 Wasn't an Article

The New York Times has released its list of most-visited stories of 2013. As The Atlantic’s business editor Derek Thompson noted, they include four breaking news articles, one of which was a map; three health stories; a long narrative about poverty in New York; and two celebrity op-eds.
What interests me most about the list, though, is what’s at the number one spot: A news interactive made by Josh Katz and Wilson Andrews called “How Y’all, Youse, and You Guys Talk.” It was one of many stories that news organizations published about dialect this year—The Atlantic made a video!—all inspired by a North Carolina State University dialect quiz, but it was, for the Times, the most-visited thing.

That’s cool and all, but the most interesting part? One of the creators of the graphic, Josh Katz, was an intern. An intern drew more traffic to the NYT than any of their writers. Think about that.

In case you were wondering, The New York Times isn’t for sale. Why was this an issue? Ask Jeff Bezos.

An Instagram image of a surly A-Rod graces the NYT homepage right now.

I look at this image and all I see are pictures of people jumping over sharks.

NYTimes has a dazzling, in-depth piece on owls. There is a video, a podcast, recordings of various calls, and interviews. Excellent.

I thought of half a dozen puns to write with this piece. I’m not going to use any of them in honor of how great this piece is.
