Maybe today’s issue is just a first taste of what The Daily will offer, but for now, that taste isn’t very appetizing. The Daily is like an issue of Newsweek that you can touch and watch and hear and flip sideways. It looks and reads like a glossy magazine, with a bunch of videos and extra things stuck in it. We know this is only the first day, but today’s launch leaves us with even more questions than we had before. We don’t know yet whether The Daily will break any news, do any original investigations, or otherwise contribute to the cultural conversation at large. It is very, very fun to touch and play with. But there’s not (yet) very much here to read.
