Daily News Might Be for Sale Again Soon


Deep breath everyone. According to the New York Post, the New York Daily News might once again be put on the block.

News boss Mort Zuckerman has been frantically trying to cut costs at the paper (hence those wide-sweeping layoffs) and has even closed in on new contracts with the News’s unions. The end game of all this is to put the News up for sale again at the beginning of next year.

How will this effort be any different than the last time Zuckerman attempted unsuccessfully for six months to sell the tabloid? It probably won’t. But you have to admire Zuckerman for trying. Well, maybe you don’t.
