Jill Abramson Joins The Guardian

She'll serve as a political columnist.


Former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson has joined The Guardian as a political columnist.

“For over 40 years, Jill has been a trailblazer for women in journalism, and brings an unparalleled knowledge of the relationship between politics and the media in the U.S.,” said Guardian US editor Lee Glendinning, in a statement. “We’re delighted to add her experience, depth and gravitas to our distinct take on this fascinating election.”

Abramson, who was controversially fired by the Times in 2014, has contributed to The Guardian in the past. Her latest column is titled “This May Shock You: Hillary Clinton is Fundamentally Honest,” so Hillary haters, be careful.
