First Amendment Breakfast: A Conversation with The New Yorker's David Remnick
Floyd Abrams, the William J. Brennan Jr. Visiting Professor of First Amendment Issues, sat down with David Remnick, editor-in-chief of The New Yorker, to discuss the difficulties and successes of "one of the greatest magazines in history." During their Jan. 26 conversation, Remnick detailed the magazine's endorsement of John Kerry, the "existential crisis" of print in the new media, and the importance of continuing to evolve the style and substance of the magazine. "[The New Yorker] is not a museum that one is the curator of," says Remnick. "If you go in that direction, the magazine will die."
