DAILY BEAST TUMBLRS

6:41 PM, October 29th, 2013

In lieu of a Grand Theory Of The Internet or What-It-All-Means statements that tend to accompany website rollouts, I’ll just say that we hope these changes make it even easier to discover and enjoy our original journalism.  The only goal is to make a simple experience that pleases our users and advertisers alike. (Yes, we believe it’s possible to do both at the same time. More on that in the future.) 

Yes, The Daily Beast’s homepage has a new look!

  1. Pay Cuts For Wall Street: Wall Street’s dismal year is about to hit home for traders. The Wall Street Journal reports that compensation is likely to fall to its lowest level since the 2008 financial crisis. 
  2. Mitt Holds Huge Lead in NH: The primary is tomorrow, but candidates and some journalists are already heading to South Carolina. Roney’s polling at 35% in the state, with Ron Paul in second at 18%. 
  3. Gingrich Prepares Romney Salvo: While Romney may have New Hampshire locked up, Gingrich will be waiting in South Carolina with a $5 million ad painting Romney as a predatory capitalist. 
  4. Iran Sentences American to Death: Iran has announced that it will sentence American Amir Mirzaei Hekmati to death for espionage. Iran claims Hekmati, a former marine, was sent by the CIA. 
  5. NBC & Daily Beast Team Up for 2012: NBC News and Newsweek & The Daily Beast announced a collaboration for the upcoming 2012 election. The magazine and Web site will have access to NBC News’ deep bench of political reporters and video content, as well as opportunities to work with NBC at national debates.

Some of you may have noticed that our mother ship site looks a leeeettle different today. Or maybe you didn’t notice at all! Well, if you did, you’re right. Late last night our entire team was busy moving our content over to a new CMS. The good news this morning: the site isn’t broken! The bad news: there will probably be some glitches along the way, so bear with us. In the end, our hope is that the site will be a better reader and user experience, with us being able to get breaking news stories up faster and putting together glossier galleries. What do you think so far? What do you love? What do you hate?
