“We are a tabloid newspaper,” said Colin Myler.
The Daily News editor-in-chief was on the phone one morning about a month ago, just a few hours before a two-day period in which more than two dozen of the paper’s journalists lost their jobs.
Myler rarely gives interviews, but he’d agreed to one with Capital about some of the News’ recent coverage, a story that suddenly seemed strange to pursue when so much was changing at the paper so quickly and so immediately after our chat. (Sources didn’t start reaching out about the layoffs until shortly after we’d spoken.)
