New York Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. sent a memo to the paper's staff Thursday afternoon disputing reports former Executive Editor Jill Abramson was fired after complaining her pay was lower than that of her male predecessor, Bill Keller. In fact, according to a copy of the memo obtained by Daily Intelligencer, Sulzberger said Abramson's "total compensation package was more than 10% higher than that of her predecessor, Bill Keller."
