Jesse Angelo, The Daily’s editor-in-chief, has heard all the chatter about his publication being put on probation for losing too much money. In a memo to staffers, Angelo says that everything is fine and anyone saying otherwise should be ignored:
Since before we launched, our dear friends at competing media outlets have done their best to wish us ill and gleefully ‘report’ on what they think is going on here. The truth is we have over 100,000 paying subs who are renewing their subscriptions at a 98% rate and fantastic advertisers who love our brand and keep coming back for more because they get results. Pay attention to them, not the haters.
Hopefully Angelo likes this “report” better than our previous “report,” but even if he doesn’t, we’re happy to see that he uses such hip words as “haters.” Even if it’s not 1998 anymore.
