Late Nite FDL: Comity
Time Magazine’s new managing editor Richard Stengel has a vision for the magazine:
Stengel, 51, said that he sees Time, the top-selling newsmagazine, as "a guide through the media chaos" and that he hopes to hire and develop more "star writers" in the mold of columnist Joe Klein. As a "writer’s editor," he said, "I’d like us to have a stronger point of view about things."
I’d like to extend the welcome to Stengel myself and express my sincere hope that he does just that.
It’s hard to imagine Time with any more pompous, condescending, bloviating egomaniacs skating on decade-stale political hokum than they already have, but it’s a nice thought.
We’ll be in business forever.
