The Inquirer and Daily News Websites Are No More

Voila_Capture 2014-12-10_09-26-22_AM

Congratulations to the Inquirer and Daily News, whose misguided attempt at spinning off the city’s largest journalistic operations from the city’s most-read website to poorly-designed, confusing, promo code-needing micro sites has finally come to an end:

Today, Inquirer.com and PhiladelphiaDailyNews.com became part of Philly.com, our flagship website. When you visit www.Inquirer.com or www.PhiladelphiaDailyNews.com, your browser will redirect you to an Inquirer page or a Daily News page on Philly.com.

There you will find the journalism you are used to reading on Inquirer.com and PhiladelphiaDailyNews.com, as part of one easily accessible website with content from all of our award-winning publications.

New-ish director of digital strategy for the papers Eric Ulken told me on Twitter that all digital subscriptions to the Inquirer and Daily News will still unlock the digital replica of the papers (…). Inquirer and Daily News content will, once again, be FREE on Philly.com.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I must step off my journalistic snark sled so I can post another Taylor Swift video from last night:

Is there like a, I don’t know, director’s cut or something from this?

  1. “poorly-designed, confusing, promo code-needing micro sites”

    I didn’t know we were talking about Crossing Broad???

  2. Fuck You Kyle.

    Kidding. Just wanted to say that I love where you’re taking the site, podcast, liberty broadcasting, etc. Brilliant stuff. Would like more consistency on Crossing Streams releases (which has been PHENOMENAL) but I guess beggars can’t be choosers. Would also like to get your buddy you had on regularly last year back on the podcast, but I guess he has a full time gig now. Both you guys had great chemistry. But Jim’s cool too ( as is his writing. I will never understand the hate towards Jim from mouth-breathing commenters. And the whole “comma thing” is so over blown it hurts my face. They can proverbially suck Jim’s balls.)

  3. Fuck you Kyle

    For all the potshots to take at “traditional” “journalists,” you’d take the first job the Inquirer offered you if it gave you the chance to be “legit”

    then the hand would be on the other foot

      1. No offers yet? Once again, all roads lead to Mr. Wonderful. I don’t want any equity in your site, because quite frankly, it’s awful. But I will accept a $0.25 royalty in perpetuity for each time someone posts a comment on an article. That’s the only thing valuable on your site.

  4. Answer these 6 survey questions so you can unlock an article where Kyle Scott criticizes someone else’s poor website decisions. As usual, not a drop of self-awareness.

  5. Am I a bad person for automatically thinking less of an adult person when I learn they are a Taylor Swift fan? Or is it the adult Taylor Swift fan that’s a bad person?>/
