The Daily News Parties While Hearst Thinks Like a Tech Company, Plus Other News of the Day

- The New York Daily News fired features editor Orla Healy today, and her coworkers and underlings have piled it on, in what has been reported as a “quiet (but palpable) celebration.” One unnamed source told The Village Voice that Hearly was “one of the most evil editors to ever work at the New York Daily News” and part of a “gangster regime that took root” at the paper. Really, people? She might not work at the Daily News any longer, but she’s still in media. Doesn’t sound like the best idea to throw her under the bus, particularly if she’s as tough to work for as reported.

- No one knows if the New York Times paywall will work once the company finally installs the plan, but it already wants to do the same thing to the Boston Globe. According to the NYT CEO Janet Robinson said “we are moving pretty quickly in regard to the Globe as well. There is more work… In regard to big picture, you’re going to be seeing introduction of apps going in this quarter, in fact, in regard to Boston.com. But from a standpoint of evaluating what we plan on doing in regard to paid models, they are, that is under evaluation right now.”

- Hearst has finally figured something out that tech companies already do, yet few publishing companies have ever tried: It plans to tap its workforce to come up with new business ideas and revenue streams. And if the employees come up with good ideas, Hearst will pay them a little extra. Why not mimic the most successful companies out there, like Google. The new plan “creates a pathway for us to discover, develop and reward great new business ideas from the best source available-our own employees-while supporting a company culture of creativity and collaboration,” said Hearst CEO Frank A. Bennack to Folio:. Not just a good idea, but a great one.

- The National Journal named a new deputy editor-in-chief today, hiring Editor in Charge of Foreign Policy and National Security for Thomson Reuters Patricia Wilson. It’s quite the move for Wilson, who has spent the last three decades at Reuters. “Her experience in reporting and managing news and teaching the craft of journalism is nearly unparalleled in Washington,” said Journal editor-in-chief Ron Fournier. “With Patsy at the helm, we will take our fantastic collection of talent and turn it into a digital-first newsroom team producing at the highest level every single day.” Just add another one to the long-list of big-name hires at NJ.
