NY Times editor: there's no trouble in our newsroom

New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson denies a new report that there's discord in her newsroom between journalists and the paper's opinion editor Andrew Rosenthal.

Abramson told Capital New York:

“The piece is comically inaccurate and filled with basic misunderstandings about Andy, the Times, the structure and reporting lines at most reputable newspapers, and any number of other things," ... One wonders about the motivation or competence of a writer who would suggest that based on his conversations with 24 (current and/or former) of 1200 (current) newsroom staff, he could state that there is a ‘near universality of [a] view within the Times that the opinion pages have grown tired and irrelevant.’"

The Observer's Ken Kurson reported on Tuesday that Rosenthal, who crafts the paper's unsigned editorials and other things, is viewed by many of his colleagues as "lazy," "bullying" and "petty."
