Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson is out with a new book today. She’s called it “Merchants of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts.” We haven’t read it, but we feel pretty safe assuming it’s supposed to make journalists look good.

We’re not journalists ourselves, and we don’t have much sympathy for most of them these days, but we can understand why they’d be facepalming over Abramson’s, um, journalistic technique:

Oh man.

Good question.


Well, at least she’s confirming what we already knew.

Credit where it’s due: Unlike many others, Jill Abramson’s owning her penchant for journalistic malpractice.
