Go New Yorker!

Remnick isn’t swearing off the app store, but in remarks at a Condé Nast breakfast discussion in New York, he made it clear that The New Yorker had no intention of catering to Apple’s whims.

“Quite frankly, when it comes to the question of, you know, Apple being stern about what it’s going to put on there, the hell with it,” Remnick said. “We’re going to publish what we’re going to publish.”

“If the Pentagon is not going to talk me out of a story, then Apple in Cupertino [California] is not going to talk me out of it either, and if that means that they throw me off, then they throw me off. But we’re going to do what we’re going to do, whether it’s to be serious, whether it’s to be funny, whether it’s to be provocative on the cover or inside, we are going to do what we are going to do. I don’t say that out of arrogance but I say it out of a sense of journalistic mission, out of a sense of fun, and out of a sense of wanting to be provocative.”
