Former wunderkind editor and Number One Zombie Princess Di Fangirl Tina Brown has had a Very Bad Week. First came Buzzfeed’s report that Barry Diller will finally push her out on her toned and shapely bottom, and now the New York Post has decided to publish a scurrilous report, titled “Tina Brown’s Charity Gave Out [...]
Today we bid farewell — or prepare to bid farewell, if “a source with direct knowledge” has given the straight dope to Buzzfeed — to Tina Brown as editor of The Daily Beast, and maybe, who knows, to the Beast itself: According to a source with direct knowledge of the situation, The Daily Beast parent [...]
While much of Twitter yesterday was given over to plaintive wailing about how announcing the Royal Spawn was a “boy” was an offensive worldwide assault of heteronormative cispression (TRIGGER WARNING!), Tina Brown was doing that thing Tina Brown does, and making us like her less than we like gender studies majors and the children today [...]
We hope you damn hipsters with your Kindlepads and iNookies are happy. Newsweek, a bastion of middle-brow media culture since its 1933 inception, will convert to an all-digital format in 2013, according to an announcement today on Tina Brown’s Internet Tendency.

After Christopher Buckley insulted his dead father’s National Review magazine by endorsing a liberal black Maoist over the Crazyfarts McBombs and Sideshow Moosetits ticket, every editor at the National Review and every wingnut with an AOL account called him a traitor to his own family, Jesus, and The Cause. And so Buckley has now quit [...]
NEW THING DEBUTS, ON INTERNET! Tina Brown has a Webzine! It is called The Daily Beast, which is an elitist reference to an Englishman’s books. It looks nice, and kind of busy, and tabloidy, which we always like. Somebody read it and tell us about it, okay? [The Daily Beast]
Have you heard about Tina Brown’s provocative New Yorker cartoon magazine? Well, some wacky kids in Georgetown claim to have found some rejected Barack Obama cover illustrations, such as this one, showing the Maoist basketball Soviet with his Nazi car loaded with change he stole from Christian collection plates, in Pennsylvania.
