We're willing to bet that Jill Abramson, executive editor of The New York Times, has one of the hardest jobs in NYC. Not only is she responsible for the content and overall well-being of the paper, but she's perpetually faced with tough decisions when it comes to covering sensitive topics, as was the case during the Boston bombings. Recently, Abramson sat down to address media trends at the Wired conference, shedding enormous insight into her daily dealings.
