No blood in ants

No blood in ants


Tom Ferrick is out with some ideas for the Philadelphia newspapers including, um, "saving" the Daily News:

Convert the Daily News into a sports daily, Monday through Friday.  It's the great remaining strength of the paper so why not make it the sole focus?  Sell it for $1 on the street and let Inquirer home delivery customers get it for 50-cents if they want it delivered along with the Inquirer. At the end of the day, it will have a larger circulation and be a more attractive buy for advertisers.

On one hand, it's a little ridiculous for Ferrick to complain that sports is the one remaining strength of a newspaper that won a Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting less than two years ago. On the other hand, did he check out today's front page. We may be already there.
