Memo Pad: Colbert Talks News... OK's Baby Buy... Rethinking the Atlantic...

Stephen Colbert spoke to Ariel Levy, saying he preferred to be viewed as a comedian, not a crusader.

NOT OUT OF THE GAME: Though recent reports have said that OK is no longer in the market to buy celebrity photos, the magazine is, in fact, shelling out six figures for pictures of Jamie Lynn Spears and her baby daddy, Casey Aldridge. The teenage parents sat for an exclusive interview with the magazine to speak about marriage, parenthood and Aldridge’s supposed infidelities. OK has featured Spears and her sister, Britney, and their offspring in the magazine regularly (Jamie Lynn has appeared on five covers in 12 months, with and without her newborn).

While the parents certainly didn’t fetch Brangelina-like fees for the images, the magazine paid upward of $100,000 for the photos. As for who will be named the magazine’s next editor in chief to replace Sarah Ivens, OK’s new U.S. boss Kent Brownridge said an announcement could come in the next week or three. — S.D.S.
