On shedding tears for dead Murdoch projects

thecallus says: Shed no tears for dead Murdoch projects.

» SFB says: Why not? Does it make the people who worked on it terrible people because of the guy who kept the lights on? I understand the hate for Murdoch, but let’s put it this way: Real people work/worked these jobs (including, as I pointed out, some people who work on this site), and The Daily had few of the ideological issues that Murdoch’s oft-criticized tabloids or Fox News did. Maybe it didn’t work, but it was a constructive idea, not a destructive one. — Ernie @ SFB

First iPad-only newspaper ‘The Daily’ shutting down on December 15th

:( A real heartbreaker. As you guys might know, some of SFB’s staff worked for The Daily until a recent round of layoffs. (I also did a piece for the publication a while back.) Peter, who you might know as BrooklynMutt, also worked on it. They also ran one of the best big-media Tumblrs. It was a great publication with solid design and a forward-looking approach — a real trailblazer. Its death is all-around sad. — Ernie @ SFB
