The Philadelphia Inquirer has decided to stop posting all but breaking news online first. It's going to a paper-first culture and using its Web site strictly for breaking news and for carrying content from that morning's newspaper.
Jim Romenesko has landed a memo from the managing editor of the Inquirer outlining the shift, which is at odds with the way other newspapers (including ours) have moved in recent years. Most papers are looking at how to reinvent themselves in the time ahead to produce a more reflective, contextual medium that doesn't directly attempt to compete with the Web or broadcast media. The Inquirer is the first one I've seen in some time trying to reinvent the Web site to return it to an age of migrated print content.
