The Beast is Back

posted by on August 11 at 13:55 PM

Tina Brown’s attempt to unseat the Huffington Post (or Drudge, or possibly both at the same time) is going to be called The Daily Beast, which is a great name, adopted from Waugh’s Scoop. Unfortunately, there’s already a great magazine named The Beast, in Buffalo. I hope they don’t get buried by Brown’s latest venture.

Scoop is my favorite Waugh book. And as far as the Buffalo Beast... even though Buffalo is a dying city, it's smart money at the moment to bet against Tina Brown. The Buffalo Beast will probably live on.

I agree, The Beast will probably outlive Tina Brown's new "me too" venture. After all, Tina's not likely to sneak across the Canadian border in a canoe and back just to prove a point.
