Tina Brown, the former Vanity Fair
and New Yorker
editor, now hopes to conquer a new medium: the Internet. Her new site, "The Daily Beast," just launched a trial version. It's funded by
Barry Diller's IAC new media empire. Named after a fictional newspaper in Evelyn Waugh famed satire "Scoop," the site aggregates news and has a host of name bloggers, like Christopher Buckley and
Nigella Lawson, the British celebrity chef. "The Daily Beast" is targeting high-end advertisers that supported Brown's print efforts.
