Well holy smokes. Tina Brown‘s SEVENTH ACT in media, her website under the auspices of Barry Diller‘s IAC, is coming very, very soon, we hear. Finally, it has a name! Says, of course, Liz Smith today:
Tina Brown and I had an excellent chat before Hillary showed. The senator’s biographer has been busy showing her mock-up of a new journalism Web site to entrepreneur Barry Diller. It will be called The Daily Beast, in homage to Evelyn Waugh’s classic novel Scoop. And Barry, I suppose, will play the role of the Beast’s Lord Copper.
