Welcome to the Trump Schadenfreude List, New York Daily News

The New York Daily News is the worst of the worst. Its mean, vile, and nasty attacks of President Trump are without modern precedent and a bane on American journalism.

That not a single journalistic organization or professor called the Daily News out tells you all you need to know about this trade with pretensions of being a profession. Let us take a stroll down memory lane...











That last one, depicting the president as a POS, is now the standard for journalism. No one complained.

But today, this ugly Fake News paper is getting its due.

"The struggling Daily News is expected to begin another massive round of layoffs on Monday," the New York Post reported.

"The cuts at the teetering tabloid, which some insiders feared would range as high as 70 percent of staff, are expected to be among the largest in the paper’s 99-year history — and could include Editor-in-Chief Jim Rich, insiders said.

"On Monday, Rich’s job description on his Twitter home page was changed from Daily News Editor-in-Chief to, 'Just a guy sitting at home watching journalism being choked into extinction.'"

Maybe if this guy Rich had done his job, and nixed all those abhorrent front pages, his newspaper would be read, not in the red.

But it became clickbait for the Drudge report.

  1. The News is owned by a real estate tycoon who hates Trumps guts. The personal nature of much media hatred for DT is lost on the average guy but here in NY it is obvious and frankly acknowledged. The press is a Cabal of rich men, nothing more. It has no interests other than its own.

  2. The really odd thing about all this hate from the left or NeverTrump crowd is how much it's pushing us Deplorables to the Trump team. Many have talked about it on both sides but for some reason the haters just can't help themselves. The Presidents approval just ticked up to 45% after Helsinki and the left is gobsmacked about it. Again they just don't get it....

  4. The moron editor Jim Rich helped his own demise along Jul 19th with "Alternative headline: Woo-hoo! Fascism leads to more jobs! Go fascism!" aimed at the Long Island Newsday headline about gaining 15,000 jobs locally. Rich hates employed people except for himself of course.

  6. We would all be better off if all the media tanks completely.
    I know this is not original but, I was unable to properly identify the source: "without newspapers we would be uninformed, with newspapers we are misinformed."
    Some attribute that to Mark Twain, others to Thomas Jefferson, but, it is still true today.
