Here’s the cover of the new issue of Newsweek:
It’s 2011. It’s not 1997. Tina Brown, the hottest editor of the Nineties, is living in a time warp. The celebrity-mad editrix has actually put Jerry Seinfeld and Regis Philbin on the cover of her weekly newsmagazine — this, in the week that the Penn State scandal blew up and Europe is on the brink of fiscal Armageddon.
I guess nothing moves issues off the newsstand faster than celebrities who were sizzling over a decade ago. I guess that’s why Tina’s doing so well.
