Sidney Deane, the hustler charachter from White Men Can’t Jump, once said, “I don’t mean to brag, but I’m the greatest!” After today, FishbowlNY imagines Tina Brown might want to add that quote to her repertoire as well.
The Newsweek/Daily Beast venture she’s in charge of keeps adding elite talent, showing that Brown knows how to put together a winning squad. The latest additions include Peter Boyer from The New Yorker and Wayne Barrett, most recently from The Village Voice.
According to Jeremy Peters at Media Decoder, Boyer will be a correspondent for news and politics, and Barrett will do what he does best – investigative reporting.
Once the Newsweek/Daily Beast entity gets launched we fully expect Brown to send out an email to competitors with the subject, “It’s hard work makin’ you look this bad.”
