Day One of New Newsday.com Format: Thumbs Down

Newsday.com has redesigned (again), in the next step in their effort to generate revenue through their online presence.  Well, it's only been a day, but I have to give it a hearty thumbs down so far.  The site is slower, clumsier, ugly, difficult to navigate, and archaic:  the blogs are not even RSS functional, nor even have comment section set-up.  And you expect us to pay for this? 

In April, Newsday announced that they "plan to end the distribution of free Web content and make our newsgathering capabilities a service to our customers."   Poor first step, folks.   Who would pay for this?
