Fox’s Philadelphia Inquirer headline misleading

Posted on January 31, 2011


We were at first just a little taken aback by Fox’s headline on an article from Philadelphia: “Inquirer no longer a newspaper.” We think they are missing a word here. What the owners of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News mean is that they are no longer just a newspaper. They plan to charge for the e-reader editions for both papers in the future. Many newspaper companies are heading down this path these days and that’s fine. But be careful with your headline Fox. The Inquirer is still a newspaper.
