Ink-Stained Wretch Dept., Profile of Jill Abramson

morelogo.gifI profiled Jill Abramson for More Magazine this month. A newswoman and a smart fighter, also a dog-lover, her appointment as the first female editor in chief of the nation's paper of record is of course, encouraging to me and any woman in the business.
However, lest we celebrate a "trend" prematurely, I note that there is only ONE other major newspaper with a woman at the top, and it's in Ohio.
Men still run everything at all the high-culture publications, and they pick their own gender to write, and review other people's writing whenever possible.  Actually, when I told one of these entitled lads that I was writing this profile for More he sniffed condescendingly: 'Uhh, does 'More" even exist anymore?"
Yes, apparently it's doing pretty well, thanks.
That's why I read the Lives of the Saints for style tips before writing about Jill.
She also talked about her regrets regarding the Judy Miller/Iraq war p.r. campaign, the full story is linked here.
