Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson, whose firing brought out nasty attacks and allegations of sexism at the Times, was interviewed by Greta van Susteren On the Record last night.
While she played close to the vest about the reasons for her firing, she didnt hold back on the Obama administration, defending her earlier branding of it as the most secretive she has ever deal with since President Carter, and elaborated:
I have never dealt with an administration where more officialssome of whom are actually paid to be the spokesmen for various federal agenciesdemand that everything be off the record. So, thats secretive and not transparent. But the most serious thing the Obama administration has [done is its] launched eight criminal leak investigations against sources and whistleblowers
And they have tried to sweep in journalists, includingits almost the one-year anniversary exactly that your colleague, James Rosen, had his record secretly looked at by the government in a leak investigation.

By the way, miss Romney yet? Same thing will happen in 2014 with some ignorant Republicans. No different in 2016.
vocal frrrrrrrryyyyy to the max during that interview.
Propagandists carrying water for totalitarians are upset when they’re drowned in it? Where are the rest of the JournoLists?
Have you noticed all the “FUMR” posts on various threads? Here’s a hint. That means very few of us ‘miss’ Obama’s lighter twin”. So you might wanna stop asking that asinine question. You have an answer. No. We don’t. The few remaining Mitt supporters are becoming fewer by the day as he ramps his liberal campaign for 16 back up.
“I have devoted my career to truth-telling, so why hide that? “
LOL. She was the editor of the NYT. She was not interested in truth-telling. She is part of the problem, not part of the solution. She crossed someone in the Obama admin and got fired. That’s what happens when you make a deal with the devil.
Like Obama, Jill is impervious to the facts until they affect her personally...
Before too long, the American Government is going to need its own “glasnost” and “Perestroika.”
First they went after the Tea Partiers, and I said nothing...
She also said NYT is not biased
Miss Romney, he needs to go away to be missed and you think he would have been better? That’s possible but his campaign was dirty, he is dirty and folded to allow O to win again.
We need to stop letting liberals and the media select our candidates even though I’m sure they have our best interests at heart...
Typical of liberals. They need more pain before they see that conservatives were right all along.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM
(paid) "spokesmen for various federal agencies"?
There is no shortage of paid hit men of BIG GOVERNMENT & BIG PROPAGANDA to take you apart by any and all means.
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat
The debt/death train rolls on. ALL ABOARD!
> All hail dictator King Obama and his communists corrupt empire.
In the end we all know what happens to tyrants. I wonder if 0 has read his history books? Or maybe he thinks Sporos will protect him in the end.
That end is slow with Marxism. But it eventually comes.
“By the way, miss Romney yet?”
No, I don’t miss a quisling like Romneycare, Do you?
“We need to stop letting liberals and the media select our candidates even though Im sure they have our best interests at heart...”
I believe you miss-spoke here, The correct statment is “Im sure they have desire to enslave us all”
She still doesn’t understand or support the TP or the Constitution and Bill Of Rights, she’s just mad that her ox got gored this time.
Yet she said nothing about any of this when she actually worked for the paper....
“She still doesnt understand or support the TP or the Constitution and Bill Of Rights, shes just mad that her ox got gored this time.”
It is somewhat disappointing that we do not have a repeat of Stalin vs. Trotsky.
