Tina Brown gets her due

Interesting longish post on the blog Gawker making the case that much of the good at David Remnick's New Yorker magazine is due to the superlative hires made by his predecessors, most particularly Tina Brown. Fascinating as such a parsing of the comings and goings can be for magazine junkies, even more fascinating is the sheer volume of talent that has flushed in and out of this iconic title in the past 10 years. No matter how much it might be said that Brown trashed the venerable title, she also had an eye for good people, good writers and editors, many of whom make the magazine what it is today.
