In a depressing local development, the Tronc media group has laid off fifty percent of the NY Daily News editorial staff. This is a worrisome development, especially because the Daily News has been on a roll since the election of quintessential New York asshole Donald J. Trump. Remember, we loathed him long before you did. The Daily News has, time and again, taken Trump to the woodshed.
Long considered one of NYC's 'tabloid' newspapers, the 'News' has actually done a better job of holding Trump's feet to the fire than the NY Times. The 'Times' has been an embarrassing farrago of Trump shillery, endless Cletus safaris, and the worst exemplars of bothsiderism and dank rightie hot takes for altogether too long. The 'News' was more in tune with the needs of working and middle class readers... I guess that's why Tronc had to gut it.
