Daily News debuts new look and feel

    Pick up the Daily News today and won’t look all that different than what you’re used to. It’s still a tabloid-style paper with an eye-catching cover and bold headlines.

    But editor Larry Platt promises what’s inside is fresh, relevant and better.

    “These pages teem with our activist reporting, provocative commentary, and stunning photography – and with you,” Platt writes, vowing to incorporate the reader in ways the paper hasn’t before, even pulling from Facebook, Twitter and Philly.com to bring online commentary to the inky pages of the DN.

    Some of the features to expect: weekly calendar picks, style photos and a less snobby take on food reviews.

    The long and short of it? “We’re going to be the journalistic equivalent of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction,” Platt says. “We Will Not Be Ignored.”
