Ex-NY Times CEO clashed with chairman's girlfriend-report
Reuters 6 hours ago
REUTERS - Arthur Sulzberger Jr.'s new girlfriend and the New York Times Co's declining business led to the ousting of Janet Robinson as the newspaper company's chief executive in December.
A New York magazine article published this week reconstructs the events that led to Robinson's departure after 28 years of service, working her way up from advertising sales to the corner office in 2004, becoming Sulzberger's most trusted lieutenant in the process. http://tinyurl.com/6oameoz
The article is based on interviews with more than 30 sources described as "intimately familiar with different aspects of the Times' business."
Robinson chafed at Sulzberger's increasing preoccupation with his girlfriend Claudia Gonzalez. Robinson felt Gonzalez either took Sulzberger's attention away from company business for long stretches of time or inserted herself into it at her expense, the magazine reported.
A New York Times spokesman and Janet Robinson declined to comment. Sulzberger did not immediately respond to a request for comment. An automatic e-mail response from Gonzalez said she was traveling in the Himalayas with "almost no access to e-mail or phone."

Pinch grew a beard?

Years ago a publisher of a well known paper was arrested for driving under the influence. The newsroom didn't know how to cover the story - and asked him. He looked over the room and said if another person of his importance was arrested for a DUI it would go on the front page - and that's where the story belonged. And that's where it went. True story - and a reminder of why the press was once respected...
