Marianne Stanton Advocates for Jill Abramson

Marianne Stanton Advocates for Jill Abramson Picture

Jill Abramson, the former executive editor of The New York Times, takes a look at the dramatic changes in American journalism since the disruptive forces of the internet, through the lens of four businesses. We see the arrogance of legacy media and missed opportunities by The New York Times and Washington Post, who were both late to the party in understanding the importance digital information delivery would play in future successes. And we see the birth of BuzzFeed and Vice, two newcomers who started eating the lunch of traditional media. As a career journalist, I found Merchants of Truth terribly sad, yet compelling – a car accident on the highway of life that riveted my attention.
