Murdoch's 'The Daily' to hit iPads on Wednesday

The Daily is an online news venture designed for the iPad, based on a bet by Rupert Murdoch that news consumers will put up a little cash for news on their little screen. The Los Angeles-based (or career-connected) journalists involved include former Page Six columnist Richard Johnson, critic Heather Havrilesky, reporter/producers Deborah Hastings and Soo Youn and reporter Hunter Walker. LA Observed author Veronique de Turenne is on board to write for the culture section.
