Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson to discuss new book "Merchants of Truth" at National Press Club Headliners breakfast event, February 14

National Press Club

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2019 — Award-winning journalist Jill Abramson, former executive editor of The New York Times, will deliver an insider’s look at the transformation of journalism and the business of news at a Headliners breakfast conversation on February 14 at 9 a.m. in the National Press Club’s Fourth Estate Restaurant.

Abramson will discuss and sign her new book, “Merchants of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts.”

Doors will open with a light breakfast of coffee and tea at 8:30 a.m. The program will begin promptly at 9 a.m.

You will also have the option of purchasing a copy of the book, which will be available for pick up and signing at the event.

The book, using the examples of two legacy heavyweights, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and two digital upstarts, BuzzFeed and Vice, dissects the disruption of the news media, its attempts to adjust and its uncertain future amid President Trump’s war on the press.

Abramson, who witnessed the struggles firsthand in senior editorial positions at the Times and the Wall Street Journal, gives readers insight into the biggest players in media including Jeff Bezos, Marty Baron, Arthur Sulzberger, Dean Banquet, Jonah Peretti and Shane Smith.

Walter Isaacson called the book “essential for anyone who wants to understand today’s media and how it is affecting our society.”
