Dayton Daily News- well, some days…

No News for you - Dayton Daily News iPad edition fail

Blank pages for the DDN on Jan 5 2011

Yesterday, the crew at the Dayton Daily News weren’t able to get the iPad edition of the News or Local sections up in the dumb reader.

Today, they apparently didn’t print the Wall Street Journal edition. The WSJ is issuing a one day credit to all subscribers. Apparently staff cutbacks are having an effect.

What’s more bewildering is that despite having seemed to have learned that local people and ideas are important, with their very nice interview with my brilliant neighbor, Carli Dixon, on what she and her husband, the talented metal sculptor Hamilton Dixon, have been up to on E. Third Street– they haven’t made it available online for all to share.

If the Dayton Daily is trying to be a “community oriented” local paper- local content about people like Carli is more important than all their robbery, rape and Craig’s list-is-the-devil stories. Wake up Dayton Daily News, a few investigations won’t make up for getting the basics right.
