PutzBeast is Hiring!

Internal Memo: Tina Brown @ Newsweak
Hiring. Staff. People. Sometimes I sit up at night wondering, Who is the most brilliant hire I've made so far? Michelle Cottle? I love her Southern drawl! Whenever she drops into my office, it's like we have William Faulkner or Huey Long on staff. Andrew Sullivan? BeastDish! DishBeast! Dieasht! Peter Boyer? Since I hired him, I've received so many odd "Thank You" notes from New Yorker subscribers begging me to hire Malcolm Gladwell as well. I should do it. Malcolm is the one writer in English language who perfectly embodies my theories of multiple points of entry in his prose—you never have to look past the subhead to know what he'll say. Soon I'll have him.

Your Say

" multiple points of entry?" Since when did that become a job requirement for writers? Politicians, yes, butt writers?

I prefer to say that Newsweek and The Daily Beast made The Beast With Two Backs.
