Oh The Daily! Rupert Murdoch's Sisyphean battle with the impassable forces of the Internet really reminds me of those humans playing Watson on Jeopardy, it's really hard to figure out who to root for. Well this week, New York Magazine made that decision a little bit easier for us, leaking The Daily EIC Jesse Angelo's ridiculous motivational memo to staffers of Murdoch's nascent iPad-only offering. Of course bloggers had a field day . The memo (included below) is absurd for a variety of reasons but namely because it demonstrates a complete editorial disconnect with today's online media ecosystem as well as a lack of understanding on Angelo's part of the types of stuff people actually want to read on a tablet.
