    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,...

    NY Post ^ | July 23, 2018 | Keith J. Kelly
    The struggling Daily News is expected to begin another massive round of layoffs on Monday, The Post has learned. 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.” Rich also tweeted on Monday: “If you hate democracy and think local...

    Vice reported: The co-owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, has had a hell of a time since she decided to 86 Sarah Huckabee Sanders from her restaurant on Friday, coming under attack from an army of Trump supporters. But despite all the backlash she’s gotten from the right, Stephanie Wilkinson says she doesn’t regret a thing. “I would have done the same thing again,” she told the Washington Post. “We just felt there are moments in time when people need to live their convictions. This appeared to be one.” When Sanders came to the Red Hen with...
  • $30,000 rumor? Tabloid paid for, spiked, salacious Trump tip

    NEW YORK — Eight months before the company that owns the National Enquirer paid $150,000 to a former Playboy Playmate who claimed she’d had an affair with Donald Trump, the tabloid’s parent made a $30,000 payment to a less famous individual: a former doorman at one of the real estate mogul’s New York City buildings. As it did with the ex-Playmate, the Enquirer signed the ex-doorman to a contract that effectively prevented him from going public with a juicy tale that might hurt Trump’s campaign for president. The payout to the former Playmate, Karen McDougal, stayed a secret until the...

It is the latest in a number of horrific mutations in the country which is at the centre of a row over the...

    President Trump "has a staggering IQ of 163, making him the second smartest president in history, behind John Quincy Adams at 169," says the latest issue of THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER. The magazine is providing Americans with details about our new leader even as the outdated MSM denigrates him with every newscast. A special investigation and analysis of President Trump says he is a highly focused, driven and charismatic genius who thinks outside the box! Keep in mind that his detractors also denigrate the millions of Americans who voted for him and who are turning off their cable boxes. Trump's flashes...

    Ted Cruz essentially gave a career-ending speech at the GOP convention on Wednesday night. Cruz's speech was a slap in the face to GOP nominee Donald Trump. "Vote your conscience" is a wonderful-sounding phrase. But we all know what he meant: Don't vote for Donald Trump. I was in the convention hall and the crowd's reaction was unbelievable. It started out as a few hands waving in the air and some booing, and then it just grew and grew throughout the entire convention hall. And then boom! It was absolute bedlam. I've been to most of the GOP conventions since...

    Ratter, a fledgling media company that sought to turn local tabloid-style reporting into viral national news, laid off its entire editorial staff Wednesday. The startup, which hired staffers in the Bay Area and Los Angeles since its launch last November, let go “every single byline that was on that site,” founder A.J. Daulerio said. But “It’s not shutting down,” according to Daulerio. Despite its small size — before the lay-offs Ratter only had four full-time writers — the company had garnered media attention. That’s mainly because of the pedigree of its founder, A.J. Daulerio, a Gawker Media veteran best known...
