The New York Post reports ousted New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, who learned her male predecessor was earning more than she was, is not writing a “score-settling book”. Rather, according to the statement Abramson sent to the Post, the book will follow “news media’s battles to remain the bedrock of an informed society.” Abramson added, “…I’m going to wear my reporter’s hat again to tell the full drama of that story in a book, focusing on both traditional and new media players in the digital age.” Simon and Schuster bought the book at auction last Wednesday for a reported $1 million after Abramson and her agent Suzanne Gluck approached publishers last week.

Post-New York Times, Abramson has been making select appearances and working on launching a start-up that will pay journalists $100,000 for long-form pieces.
