New York Daily News cuts half of its staff
msn ^ | July 23, 2018

The New York Daily News announced on Monday plans to eliminate half of its newsroom as part of a broader effort to refocus the newspaper. Daily News staff was notified of the cuts in an email sent by the company's human resources department that also detailed a new direction for the paper, with an increased focus on breaking news with particular attention paid to crime, civil justice and public responsibility. It will still cover local news and sports, the email said.

Journalists for the newspaper were called to a 9 a.m. meeting and then told to wait for the email, which notified them of the cuts and the paper's new direction. The email also notified employees that editor-in-chief Jim Rich and managing editor Kristen Lee were among those parting ways with the company. Rich tweeted early Monday an ominous warning: "If you hate democracy and think local government should operate unchecked and in the dark, then today is a good day for you.

“civil justice and public responsibility”

So all the people who damaged the business enough to get half the staff fired are the ones left, and they’ve gone all in on the Communist Kool-Aid.

Big news, from the news media capital of the country.

Years ago, New York had something like 6 or 7 daily newspapers.

I remember visiting relatives in NY, and they got the Herald-Tribune. That paper is long gone.

Are newspapers, printed newspapers, in their final stages? Even the NY Times has had troubles, I think? They are losing readers, and the online versions of the paper just aren’t getting subscribers, from what I hear.

My heart bleeds for the ny daily snooze. It is a leftist rag written for moronic illiterates. It doesn’t know any words of more than 3 syllables, or longer than 8 letters. It is read by low-IQ individuals who can’t hold more than one thought in their heads at the same time.

I am happy that they are firing half of the staff. I hope the rest of them go within a year.

Doesn’t take a lot of staff to rehash stories off the teletype. No need for investigative staff when you can sit at your desk and make up hooey.
