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