The New Yorker has a terrific piece by Ken Auletta about the still-new executive editor at the New York Times, Jill Abramson. (Full disclosure dept: I have known Jill since we were college classmates; I like her; and I admire her professionally. And I think her voice is charming.)
Much as I enjoy Auletta, I thought this piece could have focused a little less on management issues and more on politics. So, I would say the definitive piece may still be waiting to be written.
