Murdoch’s Daily doesn’t cross the pond

without comments

Much as we would love to bring you a review of Rupert Murdoch’s iPad newspaper The Daily, we cannot.  It is not available in the UK app store, nor is there any indication that it will be.  There is a cheat to get hold of a copy – detailed here, but we are not going to admit to such chicanery.

There has been a relatively enthusiastic response from those who have seen it – thenextweb.com note that the news is a shade lightweight and it more closely resembles a magazine than a newspaper.  Ian Beteridge, in The Guardian opines that at less than $1 a week, he would subscribe.  And, Neiman Journalism Lab thinks that its success will depend on how well it meets its readers’ desire to interact with stories.
