NY Daily News Delivers Devastating Announcement to Staff…Via Email

Published

on

Employees working for the NY Daily News have been preparing themselves for bad news for weeks now, awaiting the final verdict on who would be cut from the staff.

Well, the bad news was finally delivered Monday morning. No, they weren’t given during personal phone calls. Nor were they revealed in a brief, one minute staff meeting. News of the cuts came in the most impersonal, cold, distant means of communication possible.

Email.

Talk about making folks feel insignificant.

Tronc, which owns NYDN, sent an email to staff Monday morning announcing it would be “fundamentally restructuring the Daily News,” according to a copy of the memo obtained by the Daily Beast’s Max Tani.

“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 email said.

Tani wrote on Twitter that “multiple staffers” told him NYDN employees were called in for an all-staff meeting and told to wait for the email.

Later in the email, Tronc wrote: “With the exception of a few particular employees who are not in the office today, Human Resources will communicate with everyone leaving the Daily news by the end of the day,” suggesting many employees still don’t know whether they have a job or not. Those who are laid off, per the email, will “be paid for the next 90 days and be eligible for transitional benefits after that.”

The biggest cut was editor-in-chief Jim Rich, who foreshadowed the layoffs in an ominous tweet Monday morning.

This is a truly shameful business practice that these folks ought to be ashamed of participating in.

When you have a career, especially in journalism, it’s not just a job. It’s your life. These folks are losing a huge part of their income and self-esteem is taking a critical blow all at the same time. The least the company should’ve done was had these folks told of their layoff in person.

On the other hand, perhaps if the NY Daily News did true, honest reporting instead of publishing biased drivel, maybe they would be doing better as a company.

Just putting that out there.

MUST SEE: Barr Shreds Reporter In Half When She Implies He’s ‘Covering’ For Trump [Video]

Annnnnnd AG Bill Barr just won the internet…

Bill Barr has turned out to be everything President Trump wanted in an attorney general – and more. Former AG Jeff Sessions might’ve faired more favorably in 45’s eyes had he not recused himself from the Mueller investigation, but all of that is in the past. During his Thursday morning address to the media regarding the Mueller report, Barr shut down a reporter who implied he was “covering” for Trump. It was a total boss move. WATCH: https://twitter.com/dcexaminer/status/1118877097244733440?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118877097244733440&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fwatch-ag-barr-rips-reporter-to-her-face-when-she-implies-hes-covering-for-trump%2F Barr consulted with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and both concluded there was zero evidence against Trump.

Adam Schiff (CA) is not thrilled with Barr. From Fox News: Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., slammed Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday, stopping just short of asking for his resignation after saying the redacted Mueller report showed Barr misled the American people with his summary report last month. The House Intelligence Committee chairman held a news conference just hours after the nearly 400-page redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released to the public. Schiff claimed Barr “did a great disservice to the county by misrepresenting significant parts of the Mueller report, by attempting to put a positive spin for the president on the special counsel’s findings” last month. He added, “On the issue of obstruction of justice, the report outlines multiple attempts by the president to mislead the country, to interfere with the investigation, to make false statements to the American people and to urge others to lie to the American people… that these actions had a material impact on the investigation.” Schiff noted, “If the special counsel, as he made clear, had found evidence exonerating the president, he would have said so. He did not. He left that issue to the Congress of the…

GAME ON: Tlaib to Introduce Impeachment Resolution, & Ocasio-Cortez Is EAGER to Sign

GET READY, PEOPLE!

Thursday was a bad one for Democrats. Their deepest fears were confirmed. Conservatives had known from the jump that Trump’s 2016 team never colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton, but the left continued to harp away despite never finding a single concrete fact. When Attorney General Bill Barr took to the podium to let the nation know exactly what Special Counsel Robert Mueller “found,” the MSM went ballistic. Heck, freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib (MI) even moved to introduced articles of impeachment. On what grounds? None, really. And yet, fellow rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) is eager to sign Tlaib’s resolution. She tweeted: Mueller’s report is clear in pointing to Congress’ responsibility in investigating obstruction of justice by the President. It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution. As such, I’ll be signing onto @RashidaTlaib’s impeachment resolution. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1118989661555372033?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1118989661555372033&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F04%2Frep-alexandria-ocasio-cortez-says-she-will-sign-rep-rashida-tlaibs-impeachment-resolution%2F The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro had eight takeaways from AG Barr’s Thursday presser. Here are two of them… 1. The Trump-Russia Collusion Claims Were Farcically Overblown. While there were certainly members of the Trump team who acted suspiciously – including Trump, who continued to lie to the American public that no work was occurring on the Trump Tower Moscow deal during the 2016 campaign – the claims that Trump was a nefarious Russian agent were comically exaggerated. The Mueller report itself makes this clear: Although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from a Trump presidency and worked to secure that outcome, and that the Campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts, the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities. 2. The Original Suspicions Regarding The…
