Kristol on NYT: Liberals Worried About ‘Persecution’ of Someone Making $750K (Mediaite)
On This Week with George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning, Weekly Standard editor and ABC News contributor Bill Kristol reveled in the fallout from the messy firing of New York Times’ former executive editor Jill Abramson, given the Times’ liberal reputation but high salaries.
“I love the idea that the liberal elite is not very worried about the persecution of Jill Abramson, who made only $750,000 a year in last year at the New York Times,” Kristol said. “I think you should be more upset about Arthur Sulzberger. …Why does he run New York Times’? Because he inherited it. Shouldn’t you be more upset about that? Shouldn’t you be more upset about the top-1% thing?”
