Readers Abandon Anti-Gun New York Daily News

posted on November 18, 2016

Circulation numbers released this week spell bad news for the New York Daily News: Readership was down 11.2 percent in September, compared to just 6.8 percent and 5.5 percent for competitors The New York Post and The New York Times, respectively. Circulation via the News’ mobile app was down a whopping 29.5 percent. 

The Daily News has been on an anti-gun crusade, featuring hysterical anti-gun cover stories with headlines like “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS,” and “NRA’S SICK JIHAD,” and calling NRA EVP Wayne LaPierre “JIHADI WAYNE.” Editor-in-chief Jim Rich made sensational headlines challenging LaPierre to answer the paper’s calls, saying there was “nowhere to hide.” 

However, it was Rich who got the ax: He was replaced in October, after about a year at the helm. While the Daily News is up for sale, LaPierre remains as NRA’s leader, having led the civil rights organization through its most successful election season ever. 

Nowhere to hide from the facts, Mr. Rich.
