News Corp. shuts down The Daily

News Corp. is shuttering The Daily, the iPad-based publication/app that launched in February 2011. The news, which comes as News Corp. is busy turning its publishing assets into a separate company, is far from surprising. The publication was hemorrhaging money and cutting staff, so it was a matter of when, not if, it would close up shop. Felix Salmon and Will Oremus have some thoughts about tablet-centric journalism (and about the extreme shortsightedness of creating a publication solely focused on a single product, particularly at a time when creating content that can be viewed across many/all platforms is sort of the only sensible way to go).Still, as always, it’s never fun to see journalists and other workers lose their jobs.
