Murdoch iPad daily failure a lesson for digital news
France 24 - 12/03/2012
The failure of Rupert Murdoch’s pioneering iPad newspaper The Daily underscores the problems of the news industry as it seeks a paid model for the digital age, analysts said.
Murdoch announced Monday that The Daily, launched as a paid subscription for the Apple tablet, would be shuttered December 15 due to a lack of readers.
Dan Kennedy, a Northeastern University journalism professor, said the reasons for the failure are now obvious.
