As I predicted, Tina Brown has been all over the Elizabeth Edwards deathfest, despite having chastised her while she was alive for repeatedly and “inexplicably” making a “ghastly spectacle” of her book publicity tour by admitting she was, actually, pissed that her pathological liar husband had made a sex tape with some kind of Stevie Nicks without the talent manic blonde dilettante lady while she was dying of cancer, then pawned off their love child on an aide. As Pareene pointed out yesterday Mark Halperin was the first shameless hack to pull this “reversal” on Edwards after opportunistically vilifying her during her life for no good reason other than, I guess pageviews?
