If Imt guess about her being the sole writer previously is right, she can't
let go of the idea that nobody can do it as well as she did and is
sabotaging the second writer she deep down didn't really want hired in the
first place, whether she's aware of it or not.

I agree with Gene, though I'd be surprised if the boss was formerly a tech
writer herself, as she seems to be denying Kari the very things a writer
needs — access to sources and useful feedback on her work.
