IT’S NOT X NOR Y NOR Z — SO IS ANYONE INTERESTED?: Newsweek is still on the hunt for its next editor, and it appears there is still no timetable on a successor for Jon Meacham. The initial guessing game produced big names such as Adam Moss (who apparently turned the job down), Tina Brown (who has said she’s happy in her current role at the Daily Beast) and Texas Tribune’s Evan Smith, who told WWD he hasn’t spoken to new owner Sidney Harman about the job. Jacob Weisberg’s name also has been mentioned. He said he’d rather “steer clear of the whole subject.” Regardless, interest in Newsweek’s future appears to be waning, at least among some editors, one of whom sniped that “no one finds this interesting,” while another insider called the newsweekly a “major and probably futile rebuilding job.” Harman’s lawyer, Robert Barnett, declined to comment on the editor search.
