By noon on Monday, Bavaria Bierhaus, a downtown bar on Stone Street, a short walk from the offices of the New York Daily News at 4 New York Plaza, was already filling up with day-drinkers who had just been fired from the century-old tabloid, along with a few colleagues who have managedat least for the momentto hold onto their jobs.
Its all a blur right now, said a staffer who narrowly avoided being axed in what colleagues variously described as a massacre and a bloodbath.

For those of you who live in the NY area: you may be more than familiar with the headlines you'd see coming from the NY Daily News, as they are the most vile and crude. A rag that hated Trump with a personal, unbridled and unhinged passion.
Its imminent death couldn't happen to a finer bird cage liner.
Didn’t Clark Kent work at the Daily Planet?
That’s what I thought too.
Nonsense. Everyone knows Superman’s paper is The Daily Planet
What? Just sorry you got $hit-canned? Not sorry for being part of the lying $hit-rag Daily News?
Yes, although for the first year or so in the late 30s he actually worked for the Daily Star.
That reminds me of something I was just thinking.
If Lex Luthor used a kryptonite blade to cut off Superman’s index finger, would it grow back after he was away from the kryptonite?
Daily News to Workers: Drop Dead
Superman was an illegal alien working under an alias for the mainstream media.
Lex was trying to FREE you people!!!
So hating America is a bad business plan, who would have yhought?
And that was because one of the creators of Superman (Joe Shuster) hailed from Toronto and the biggest paper is the Toronto Star.
“re-focusing much of our talent on breaking newsespecially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility.”
Yeah, that’s the ticket.
This paper went on a lunatic rampage against Trump like nothing I’ve ever seen.
Utter madness Day after day.
This is the most interesting part of the story:
We are reducing today the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking newsespecially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility.
They are so desperate they are going to try to make money by pushing actual news (even if slanted) and cutting way back on opinion content.
Reality bites hard.
Ten bucks to the guy who walks into that Bar wearing a MAGA Hat.
Feel good story of the day.
The low overhead Gothamist did NOT survive; they must have missed that bit of local news? Are the latest Gothamist wage slaves receiving union scale and bennies? All six of them.
Gothamist LLC was the operator, or in some cases franchisor, of eight city-centric websites that focused on news, events, food, culture, and other local coverage.
Yes, it was the Daily Planet.
Im not a reader of that pub, but with half the writers axed, should it get 50% better ... or 50% worse?
