Former NYT Exec Editor Jill Abramson: I Would Do "Due Diligence" On How Kavanaugh Error Happened


In an interview presented today on FOX News Channel's 'Outnumbered Overtime,' former executive editor of The New York Times Jill Abramson reacted to the now-revised piece in the New York Times surrounding allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"I think my move would have been the moves that the Times has made," Abramson told host Harris Faulkner. "I mean, no one has challenged the basic accuracy of the story that they published or of what’s in the book. It’s true that a material fact was left out and the Times ran an editor’s note explaining that, which is what you do when you leave something out. But it was no conspiracy to, you know, leave out that fact. It was, unfortunately, cut from the piece as I understand it."

"I would certainly do due diligence on exactly how that material fact got cut," she said. "But I have supreme faith and confidence in the top editors of The New York Times both on the news side and the opinion side."
