Coatney: It seemed only natural to use Newsweek Tumblr to respond to critics

New York
“I’ve never talked to [editor Jon] Meacham about this,” says Mark Coatney. “And I don’t clear it with anyone here, or even let them know I’m doing it. I’ve long used this as a space to talk about Newsweek, and what we hope to accomplish online, and it seemed only natural and honest to use it as a venue to talk about the sale, which in recent weeks has meant answering criticism.”
