  • New Yorker editor watches cartoons come to life on ‘Late Night’

    Late Night With Seth Meyers

    Talk about sketch comedy.

    David Remnick appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night for a discussion about the international tension between Russia and Ukraine, in which Remnick compared Russia’s state-controlled media to a legion of Glenn Beck clones:

    “Imagine if Glenn Beck were appointed by the president — hard to imagine this president — but appointed by George Bush, as it were; and there were many Glenn Becks all over television, and that was all the information you were getting about the world.”

    Then, he stood next to Meyers and watched as The Late Night Players re-enacted cartoons that have appeared in The New Yorker over the years. Watch as Remnick and Meyers play for the camera while the New Yorker editor explains the high-brow punchlines that were once confined to bubbles:

    Police commander Naqibullah, who goes by one name, was given an additional sentence of four years for wounding correspondent Kathy Gannon, the AP reports.

    Naqibullah surrendered shortly after the slaying, according to the report:

    “Gannon and Niedringhaus traveled to Khost under the protection of Afghan forces and were at a district police headquarters in a village outside the city on April 4 when witnesses say Naqibullah walked up to their hired car, yelled “Allahu Akbar” — God is Great — and fired on them in the back seat with a Kalashnikov assault rifle.

  • 2 bosses depart Condé Nast, former Time Inc. exec joins as CFO

    Condé Nast CEO Charles Townsend announced Wednesday the hiring of a new chief financial officer and the departure of two company executives.

    In a memo to employees, Townsend announced that David Geithner will be joining the company as CFO, replacing John Bellando, who “has decided to leave the company.” Geithner is a former Time Inc. executive who lost his job when the company was reorganized earlier this year. Also gone is Thomas Wallace, Condé Nast’s editorial director since 2005.

    The memo does not say why Wallace and Bellando left.

    Bob Sauerberg, president of Condé Nast, will take on an expanded role in the company’s financial operations, taking leadership of “revenue generation activities” and “brand revenue growth,” according to the memo. Townsend and Sauerberg plan to make further announcements about the company’s business strategy.… Read more
