The New York Post is gambling that this “smartphone” trend is going to stick with the launch of Internet Action Force, a comedy site with a mobile-friendly lean.
IAF features short, original videos that glean their subjects from social media trends. One focuses on Hillary Clinton’s email fiasco. Another takes issue with the recently released third season of House of Cards. Each video is funny — or at least, attempts to be — and custom built for viewing on a phone.
John DeVore has been tapped as IAF’s editor-in-chief. DeVore is the former managing editor of Conan O’Brien’s TeamCoco.com, so IAF has some potential. Hopefully enough people tune-in to give the site a chance at success.
