[Newspapers] are important assets, we care about them…but that’s not going to drive our future. Our future is being driven by those big, broad content platform channel businesses.
The Daily is the most exciting news media start-up of the millennium!
The Daily is doomed. A horrible venture from a horrible man.
On the sleek iPad, it is indescribably magical to touch the news.
Apple is a fascist censor with onerous terms.
News Corp. is paying journalists, and paying them well!
