Jill Abramson, Framed by Gender PDF Print

Published: 19 May 2014

Region: Worldwide

Jill_AbramsonJill Abramson was the first female executive editor of the New York Times in the paper’s 160-year history. When she was unexpectedly fired last week by the paper’s publisher and chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr., some speculated, including New Yorker, that was because Abramson raised an issue about getting lower compensation than her male predecessor.

Sulzberger has denied the sacking of Abramson was due to gender bias, and listed ways in which she was a bad manager. This story is still unfolding, but one fact remains unchanged – women are paid less than men.

Region: Worldwide

UkraineIt seems like the journalists have not learned a lesson. Truth and facts are again the first casualties of a conflict.

Ukraine might be, as some suggested, on the edge of a civil war; but the media war has been going on for some time now. Political leaders from Russia and from the West use every opportunity to use and, some could argue, abuse the media and its role in the crisis such as the Ukrainian one.

Eurovision: Diversity or Divide PDF Print

Published: 12 May 2014

Region: Europe

Eurovision_WinnerThis year Eurovision Contest and its winner, Conchita Wurst of Austria, inspired many columnists and analysts to examine whether media in Europe showed greater tolerance and diversity since the most votes went to the performance by the drag queen or, as some media outlets descriptively put it, “lady with the beard”.

Others wonder whether the Eurovision and the voting by each country show, yet again, a divide and the political preferences.
