The New York Daily News Just Went After Donald Trump—and It’s Pretty Great


In our continuing coverage of the New York Daily News’ continuing coverage of politics in America, here’s their cover today:

Pretty good, if you ask me!

For those keeping score at home: Last Thursday’s cover: Good!

Last Friday’s cover: Bad 🙁

Sunday’s cover: Good!

So, 4-1. They didn’t run the table, but in comparison to their crosstown tabloid rivals at the New York Postwho did a bad thing and should feel bad—they’re the 1972 Los Angeles Lakers.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
