News Corp, publishers of the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, and a slew of other international papers including The Sun, has cancelled plans to offer a tablet-based newsstand, code-named Project Alesia. The project would have brought all of News Corp’s media holdings together in one app as well as aggregate news from other sources, a la Google News. The project has apparently been folded back up into News Corp.
