“Was ousted New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson paid less than her predecessor, Bill Keller, and other male colleagues who held lesser titles at the paper? The Times has several different answers.
“After news of Abramson’s firing became public, The New Yorker’s Ken Auletta reported that Abramson confronted Times executives after she learned that she was paid less than Keller.
“Spokesperson Eileen Murphy (sort of) shot down Auletta’s report in an email to Politico’s Dylan Byers:
“Jill’s total compensation as executive editor was not less than Bill Keller’s, so that is just incorrect. Her pension benefit, like all Times employees, is based on her years of service and compensation. The pension benefit was frozen in 2009.”
