Tina Brown Reacts to Newsweek Critics

As you know, a lot of criticism was lumped on to the new Newsweek when it launched. Now Tina Brown has responded to those attacks, and from what she tells Business Insider, it seems like she’s taking it all in stride:

I’m very proud and excited about the issue. We didn’t go for the big hyped launch, we went for an iterative evolution… We showed a new structure to the books.  But at the same time, we’re going to be doing a great many other changes to the magazine. And you’ll see it’s rolling over over the next year.

Of course she’s excited, but that’s not the issue (oh, Pun Friday!). Keeping readers excited – that’s the task at hand. As Brown notes though, it’s just the beginning. The Newsweek revitalization is far from over.
