Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the publisher of the New York Times and chairman of its parent company, is denying media reports that executive editor Jill Abramson's dismissal had to do with her complaints over unequal pay.

In a memo to New York Times staff on Thursday, Sulzberger said it is "simply not true that Jill's compensation was significantly less than her predecessors." He adds that neither compensation nor any discussion about compensation played any part in his decision that Abramson, quote, "could not remain as executive editor."

Rather, Sulzberger says the reason for the decision was a concern about Abramson's management of the newsroom.
