Tina Brown told NY1 tonight that the internet is a lot like theater; the audience gives instant feedback. But what to do about hecklers? Brown's two college-aged children knew: Heckle back, viciously and covertly.
What does Brown make of this anonymous bloodsport? Well, consider that when she was atop Vanity Fair and feuding with Vogue's Anna Wintour, Brown published a take-down on Wintour's womanizing then-boyfriend — and pillaged for quotes a private lunch Wintour invited her to with Princess Diana. So, yes, Brown approves. And probably would still approve if the perpetrators weren't her own flesh and blood.
