The editor in chief of The New York Times was fired for reporting from Slavyansk

121
According to the "Reedus"Jill Abramson, editor-in-chief of The New York Times, has lost her position because of excessive autonomy and refusal to comply with "corporate standards". According to local media, the owners of the publication decided to replace it with the former Los Angeles Times editor Dean Beckett in connection with the publication of a report from Slavyansk on May 3.


In particular, in a published article, journalists reported that there were no citizens of the Russian Federation in the pro-Russian militia, noting that for the most part it consists of local residents, some of whom had previously served in the Ukrainian and Soviet armies. This is one of the few reports that presented an "alternative point of view," which caused criticism from representatives of the US State Department.

It is worth noting that Jill Abramson has a reputation as a stubborn and aggressive leader. She often made policy decisions that contradicted the opinion of New York Times CEO Mark Thompson.

“Abramson made voluntaristic decisions without consulting with colleagues and not wanting to build productive relations with me. In the end, I came to the conclusion that she had completely lost the support of her colleagues, ”said publisher of The New York Times Arthur Sulzberger Jr. in an interview on one of the TV channels.

      As early as 1789, the US Congress, under pressure from public opinion and democratic legislators in the states, adopted the Bill of Rights - the first 10 amendments to the Constitution, which proclaimed the political, personal and procedural rights of citizens. The first amendment declared the main achievement of a democratic society - freedom of speech, press, and assembly.

    Defending the truth, kindness and honesty in the United States have long moved to cinemas from Hollywood, and even there they are catastrophically losing their positions. The State Department says that, for example, he is fighting global terrorism. However, in his opinion. terrorists are those who are against US policy. If they organize terrorist attacks on US territory, then they are terrorists, if on the territory of their "partner" (by the way, with the money of American taxpayers), then they are "rebels are fighting for freedom with truly democratic means." ... Their consciousness is "dislocated" - "Everything that we say (even if there is no connection with reality) is true what others say - (even if it is actually true) - a lie!" Previously, they, illnesses, had to do auto-training (self-hypnosis). Now everything is easier - consciousness is disabled!
    But there are also smart people in the camp of rams, proving that white is white and nothing else! But they are fired, hushed up, suspended! Free Speech in America - MYTH!

    The Americans are an "exceptional nation", they teach everyone when to consider terrorists, and when to be "desperate people", when buildings can be seized, and when not, when force can be used and when not. And the dismissal of a journalist is not an example of total pressure on the media, but the editorial policy. How did these guys get everyone, both "friends" and enemies. But the joke is that the current administration of the State Department is somehow petty, touchy, hysterical, not far-sighted, not professional. There is no need for strength, but it was not there. In our time, everything has changed, both in information technology, and in the alignment of forces and means in the world, and in the heads of people.

      Those who in the USSR dragged a centner of potatoes on themselves knew that all this was for the sake of the country. And the slaves, the characters of the mentioned film, and those on whom these historical realities can be projected, knew that all their work was for the benefit of the Master. There is a difference.

    Well, even such a precedent already says a lot, so I think many NYT readers will notice after what events ch. the editor lost his post.

    For me, with this dismissal, she showed the people how the State Department actually uses the first for editing! (I'm talking about the people who still know how to think)

      Yes, the whole question is that at first she was accused of being imperious, rude to people.
      At first they lied to her!
      And now it turned out FOR WHAT REALLY she was fired.
      Now, not only does she DO NOT BELIEVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AMERICAN, but also other Americans.
      Well, of course we knew everything in advance. Here we are so smart.

          You must be able to distinguish irony from self-irony.
          And I don’t put you cons.
          You just did not understand the meaning of my last line.

    American Journalism: There are two opinions - the State Department and the wrong one. And they are still trying to teach someone to live. Ghouls

    It is fashionable now to declare journalists as terrorists. This is what they do to our journalists, and soon, apparently, our entire RT channel will be declared a terrorist organization in order to ban it completely. And we have today on the 1st channel celebrated in the morning "jeans birthday". A week ago, we celebrated the birthday of the "American bubble gum". If we compare the information war with the war of 1941-1945, then the Americans are already near Smolensk, they have already captured Kiev. Of course, silence is golden. But how not to be silent in today's environment.

    And here is what Svetlana Aliluyeva (Stalin's daughter) wrote, in the seventies, having lived in America for several years:
    "... America's best people suffer from the 'free press' and find it vulgar, ignorant, distorting the truth, and deeply negative about everything ...
    ... The militaristic aspirations and propaganda in America is truly as wild and full of hatred as can be observed in the USSR ... "

    And about ordinary people, about the country itself it spoke well.

      100%! I completely agree with Aliluyeva! Itself went through this here in the USA. And ordinary people here are the same as ours ... in the Union.
