Tina Brown, Revisited

02_dillerbrown_lg.jpgWe now have more details on the Tina Brown/Barry Diller online partnership that Radar reported on in April. During a chat with Hillary Clinton and Liz Smith Brown revealed that the upcoming news aggregator website will be called The Daily Beast, in homage to Evelyn Waugh’s novel Scoop. Back in April Brown said that the site will not be in direct competition with HuffPo, nor have any ideological stance. Says Smith: “Barry, I suppose, will play the role of the Beast’s Lord Copper.” Should anyone be interested in going head to head with the beast, TheDailyBeast.com is apparently still available.
