‘Loud, irreverent, fun’ Philadelphia Daily News debuts

Philadelphia Daily News

Daily News editor Larry Platt says the revamped tabloid will be the journalistic equivalent of Glenn Close in "Fatal Attraction": "We Will Not Be Ignored. We'll tell the soap-opera-like narrative of Philadelphia, calling out our story's villains and praising its heroes. We'll take the plight of the voiceless seriously, but we won't take ourselves too seriously." Platt says the paper's focus will be excessively local, "and centered on our guiding holy trinity: People, Power and Gossip." || Today's Daily News cover.
