Jill Abramson might be more gifted in impression management that she is in managing people. Could be that her Next might be to head up a major public relations agency in Manhattan.
At Wake Forest Commencement she piled on inspirational words about the importance of resilience. She threw in a joke about checking with the career counselors there about her unemployed state. My hunch is that that her address at Wake Forest will become as iconic as Steve Jobs' at Stanford.
For her latest move she has done a 180. She has chosen silence. When the team from Page Six at the New York Post asked her about her employment situation she gave no answer. Nada. That, of course, received prominent placement on the Post's web site. Here you can read it.
Perhaps since she doesn't have to go into the office she might be reading more. She could have picked up the biography of Henry Ford. His meme was: Never complain, never explain.
Abramson can maintain the silence. Or she can execute another move. Meanwhile her nemesis Arthur appears so not in control.
