Or so we think. New York has obtained a memo from iPad newspaper The Daily editor Jesse Angelo that is apparently supposed to be encouraging, but whatever.
“We need to get out there and start finding more compelling stories from around the country – not just scraping the web and the wires, but getting out on the ground and reporting.”
Then he suggests:
“Find me something new, different, exclusive and awesome. Find me the oldest dog in America, or the richest man in South Dakota. Force the new White House press secretary to download The Daily for the first time because everyone at the gaggle is asking about a story we broke. Get in front of a story and make it ours – force the rest of the media to follow us.”
We’re just happy this guy isn’t our boss.
