Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter sounds positively exasperated that Toby Young is still stuck—gum-like—to his shoe. A decade after the British hack's disastrous six-month stint at the Conde Nast magazine, Young's account of epic failure to take New York by storm comes to screens later this week. "I can only compare it with a brief one-night stand that results in octuplets," says Carter, who is played by Jeff Bridges in the movie version of How To Lose Friends And Alienate People. But the Vanity Fair poo-bah ought to show more respect for noble failure. After all, Carter's own reputation was made by Spy, a magazine that won plaudits but lost money in all but one year of its existence. Disclosure: despite a history of mutual abuse, Gawker is co-hosting a party for Toby Young on Wednesday.
