It will be nice to see Tina Brown back in print, just two years after starting The Daily Beast for Barry Diller at IAC and making it clear that she was crossing over to digital media and had no intention of coming back.
“I would hate to be in the magazine world. It’s a really tough world to have to compete in,” said Ms. Brown at the EconWomen conference in 2008. But that clear-eyed assessment seemed very far away on Thursday night. Never mind all that black crepe; bring on the Champagne!
