New York Times media reporter Jonathan Mahler indulged on Saturday in a celebration of a rival paper, the New York Daily News, and its recent hard turn to the left, as shown in the tabloid’s spurt of vulgar anti-conservative headlines – like the one calling NRA president Wayne LaPierre a terrorist – that have gone viral on social media.
The Times’ online headline, “Drop Dead? Not The Newly Relevant Daily News,” refers of course to it's rival's infamous 1975 headline: “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” The Daily News also rehashed its own headline recently to attack Ted Cruz for his crack about “New York values.” You guessed it: “Drop Dead, Ted.” That passes for “relevance” among the left and the NYT.
Mahler took us inside the liberal hive mind, buzzing with giddy self-congratulation over yet another puerile attack on Republicans, while the Times dutifully reprinted the controversial Daily News covers that made liberals go giddy.
On a recent afternoon, Jim Rich, the editor in chief of The Daily News, sat at his computer playing around with front-page headlines, a few well-chosen words that would capture the day’s biggest news: Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary.
