Fish wrapper

Newsday used to be a great paper. Now, at best. it’s mediocre. Its Website is one of the worst big-paper venues, and its business model is a poor rendition of milk-and-dump.

So, no one should be surprised by this funny (600,000 YouTube views) — but counterproductive — Newsday ad that calls its iPad app “better than the newspaper in all kinds of ways.” But it won’t wrap fish.

UPDATE: Newsday has pulled its commercial. Click here for report.
