Tina Brown’s Morning Routine
“You know, it was very funny — when I looked at the document of sale, it was like the vestiges of the great galleon it had been. It was like that wreck of the Titanic in the James Cameron film — they’re swimming through the rooms, and you see the chandeliers. Every so often, you would swim around a corner and see a chandelier — things like private dining. You suddenly realize, this was an era when there were things like private dining rooms.”
—Tina Brown talks with Michael Kinsley about the fall of Newsweek, the old days of magazine publishing, the future, and the internet. Also about David Petraeus, money, Twitter, and “disgusting, sexually incontinent gargoyle[s].” It’s great.
