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?
