Radar: Tina Brown to take on Arianna online?

Fresh Intelligence : Radar Online : Tina Brown to Partner with Barry Diller on News Aggregation Site: "Former Vanity Fair and New Yorker editor Tina Brown has more than her much-ballyhooed bio of Bill and Hillary Clinton coming down the pipeline: Radar has learned that the erstwhile 'Queen of Buzz' is partnering with InterActiveCorp honcho Barry Diller to launch her own news aggregator website.

The site, Brown tells Radar, will have 'no ideological stance' and will be edited by Edward Felsenthal, the former deputy managing editor of the Wall Street Journal who is currently a consultant at Portfolio. (We hear that two business editors at the New York Times were also contacted about jobs, but didn't bite.) Brown declined to offer specifics on either a launch date or about what, exactly, the site hopes to accomplish, saying only that it would be 'a new take on an aggregator website.'"
