Former Observer EIC Under Jared Kushner Finds His Business Acumen Wanting

"Not everything that works in the private sector is transferrable to the public sector — and even if it were, Kushner isn’t the best person to transfer it"

Elizabeth Spiers, who had been editor in chief of the New York Observer at the same time presidential senior advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner had been owner of the publication, puts forth a common-sense proposal in The Washington Post. If Kushner’s qualifications for the job of leading the new White House Office of American Innovation are tied to his experience running businesses, including the Observer, then his suitability for the job should be judged on the basis of past performance.
