NY Times Editor: Obama Administration ‘Most Secretive White House’ in Recent Years

Jill Abramson, in her third year as the first female executive editor of The New York Times, describes President Obama’s administration as extremely secretive.

“The Obama years are a benchmark for a new level of secrecy and control,” Abramson said in an interview with The Takeaway. “It’s created quite a challenging atmosphere for The New York Times, and for some of the best reporters in my newsroom who cover national security issues in Washington.”

She continues:

I would say it is the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering, and that includes — I spent 22 years of my career in Washington and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush’s first term.”

Last month, New York Times reporter and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner James Risen said the Obama administration is “the greatest enemy of press freedom that we have encountered in at least a generation.”
