Tina Brown As Bad At Charity As She Is At Running Magazines And Websites

Tina Brown As Bad At Charity As She Is At Running Magazines And WebsitesFormer wunderkind editor and Number One Zombie Princess Di Fangirl Tina Brown has had a Very Bad Week. First came Buzzfeed’s report that Barry Diller will finally push her out on her toned and shapely bottom, and now the New York Post has decided to publish a scurrilous report, titled “Tina Brown’s Charity Gave Out Just $10K,” explaining that her charity, the Women in the World Foundation, only gave out a single $10 thousand grant on its $1.2 million in receipts. That is some Sarah Palin-level grifting right there. OR IS IT?

NO IT IS NOT. Because after the Post hammers away at that paltry grant, it goes on to explain that oh, that was in 2011, and after that first year, they actually gave away more than a million in charity thingies, on receipts of $2.6 million.

Which of course is its own level of being BAD AT CHARITY — hiiiiii $400 thousand in office rent; hiiiiiii $168 thousand party — but it’s no single $10 thousand grant either. BAD NEW YORK POST. BAD.

When will Barry Diller fire the New York Post???

      I’m pretty sure we can yell at it though.

  • Well clearly they needed all that money to build their charity support structure to give out ALL THE GRANTS next year!(Also that cover is still creepy as fuck.)

  • SullivanSt

    Oo, crossposty goodness. But is it happy nice time?

    • DrShitferbrains

      Well, it’s “time” at least. I think it’s not-nice imaginary time?

    The New York Post, almost as accurate as The Daily FailETA: I see linkies are just as difficult to see, although slightly differently colored, than they are in RawStory’s Disqus. Bah!

    • glasspusher

      yes, I noticed the same thing with linkies- two different shades of black? Is this a tacit concession to emmelemm?

  • CSW64MM

    There is the other site that doesn’t allow comments where I read this same dang thing. Double your pleasure.

    At lest Zombie Diana is nice and toned, just like Tina’s bottom….

  • Vienna Woods

    That front cover is easily one of the most offensive ever. Tina Brown has no taste.

    • DrShitferbrains

      And what’s with Diana’s hat? Is she my hamper for halloween?

  • BeastyJ

    But we don’t have to be nice about Tina Brown, do we? That would be asking a lot, even if she is charitable.

    Day 1 and the definition of “Happy Nice Time” is already being stretched to the limit.

    Glad to see one of the NY neocons who joined in the chorus for a bogus war against Iraq is now out of favor.

    That cover is so crass and tasteless. My god what next? A pic of Princess Di next to Lady Gaga dismantling land mines in Cambodia?
