Eichenwald resigns from Portfolio magazine
Michael Calderone of The New York Observer reports that Kurt Eichenwald has resigned from Conde Nast Portfolio.
Eichenwald is currently under scrutiny for making payments to someone who was involved in child pornography. Eichenwald wrote a story about the topic while at the New York Times.
Calderone wrote, “Back in February 2007, Mr. Eichenwald was very excited about his new position at Portfolio, telling The Observer that ‘very few startups have the kind of bankroll behind it that this one does.’
“Regarding the simultaneous print and online launch, he added: ‘Portfolio is a magazine being born in the 21st century. Any magazine coming out now cannot look at the Web as just something to put an article on; it has to be viewed as part of the whole.’
“When contacted by The Observer today, Mr. Eichenwald declined to comment.”
