Viruntly anti-Trump New York Daily News lays off half of newsroom staff.

It is only a matter of time--and that time is soon--that the New York Daily News will fold, or become a minor digital player.

From Fox News:
The New York Daily News – whose over-the-top anti-Trump coverage could not stem years of red ink – laid off half of its newsroom staff on Monday despite calls from Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the tabloid to reconsider.

Employees received an email on Monday explaining that the Tronc-owned paper is “fundamentally restructuring” to focus on its digital audience.

“We are reducing today the size of the editorial team by approximately 50 percent and re-focusing much of our talent on breaking news – especially in areas of crime, civil justice and public responsibility,” the memo, which was obtained by Fox News, stated.

“I know this is difficult news to hear and want to assure you we are working hard to treat each employee with respect and to make the transition as smooth as possible,” the memo stated.
