Doug McIntyre Pees On


Conde Nast’s expensive new business slick canned its deputy editor yesterday, reportedly for insubordination.  Analyst Doug McIntyre at New York financial media company 24/7 Wall St says the company’s problems run deeper–and include trying to cover breaking business news at monthly intervals.  With this model, he observes, having a robust, heavily trafficked, and up-to-date web site is critical, and is none of these things. 

Instead, McIntyre says, Portfolio is stale, boring, and ignored.
