Vanity Fair is probably the strongest of the magazines left in terms of having A-list people hamming it up on their covers, but not even all the media coverage over Tina Brown's book has given it any sales lift.
No one is buying the book. It almost seems like more people in the news media wrote about it than actually went out and bought a copy.
This is an unmitigated disaster for the press. I almost did not even mention this debacle, but it goes to show how irrelevant the press has become to modern life.
Tina Brown had to struggle in a sexist profession her entire adult life. She was a transforming figure in the magazine industry...and now, nothing.
She cannot bring a corpse back to life, even with her wit and shrewdness.
