The news today is about the new “The Daily” app for the iPad that’s been produced by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

I can honestly say that this is one app that I won’t be purchasing. News Corp. has systematically bent the spine of journalism in a single direction, against the truth, over the last decades.

I honestly don’t care how many good people are working on this (unlike Joshua Benton), I hope it fails, and fails hard. Not because I want journalism to fail, but because Rupert Murdoch and News Corp. deserve to fail.
