DOES ANYBODY EDIT THE TIMES EDITOR?:

'I Fell Short': Jill Abramson Responds To Charges Of Plagiarism, Inaccuracies (LAUREL WAMSLEY, 2/07/19, NPR)

Jill Abramson, former New York Times executive editor, finds herself embroiled in controversy over charges of inaccuracies and plagiarism in her new book Merchants of Truth, out this week.

The book was skewered by Vice correspondent Michael Moynihan in a series of tweets Wednesday that showed passages where Abramson's language strongly echoed that of articles penned by others.

In an interview Thursday with NPR's Michel Martin, Abramson admits she "fell short" in attributing her sources for some passages of the book.
