Soak it up, media junkies. Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s editor-in-chief gives a candid Q&A to magazine veteran Michael Kinsley in this week’s New York, discussing the demise of her magazine’s print edition and sharing thoughts on David Petraeus, Hillary Clinton, and more. “Let’s face it—when I look back on it, taking over Newsweek, it just seems completely insane,” Brown says, citing a horrific ad climate and the $42 million cost of the printing process alone. Elsewhere, Brown calls David Petraeus’s affair “piffling” and hopes for a “short and dignified” penance. Brown also says she’d “hike across America” in support of Hillary Clinton if she were to run for president in 2016.
