Abramson angered Baquet by trying to bring on a co-Managing Editor

The New York Times' own reporting on the NYT adds a new axis of conflict to the story saying that Dean Baquet, number two under Abramson and now the new boss, was "angered over a decision by Ms. Abramson to try to hire an editor from The Guardian, Janine Gibson, and install her alongside Mr. Baquet in a co-managing editor position without consulting him."

Easy to see why that would anger someone, but it's still not every day that when boss and subordinate disagree about something, the boss gets fired and the subordinate gets to take over.
