At Hero Summit, Brown Calls Zuckerberg ‘Opportunistic, Narcissistic’


In a public interview with “The Newsroom” creator Aaron Sorkin Thursday, Newsweek and Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown described Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg as “opportunistic” and “narcissistic.”

Brown’s interview with Sorkin was part of the Daily Beast’s “Hero Summit” event that began Wednesday in Washington, D.C.

Sorkin won a best adapted screenplay Academy Award in 2011 for “The Social Network,” which chronicled the rise of both Facebook and Zuckerberg.

Brown’s magazine will cease print publication at the conclusion of 2012.
