Michael Hirschorn Talks About Newsweeklies
The Atlantic's Michael Hirschorn -- formerly of VH1 and Spin -- has probably forgotten more about the media than most people will ever know. Michael, whom this blogger has met, is an interesting guy. As The Observer's Felix Gillette has written: "(H)ow did Mr. Hirschorn — who earned a master’s degree in comparative literature from Columbia University, producing a thesis that analyzed a linguistic riddle in Nabokov’s Pale Fire — get from studying the language of Vladimir Nabokov to subtitling the language of Flavor Flav?"
Here Hirschorn talks about the state of newsweeklies like Time, Newsweek and The Economist.
