Tina Brown appeared on Bloomberg Television's "Market Makers" Friday, and the former Newsweek editor said she's supportive of the venerable title's return to print.

But if its big Bitcoin story turns out to be a dud, "That would be rough. All I can think of is I'm so glad I'm not the editor," Brown said.

She also said that while she "actually always thought there should have been a print component to the digital Newsweek," the "ship has sailed."
