A legacy of tabloid grist pokes through the slick skin of a digital news age

When Sarah Palin gave her kooky blessing to Donald Trump’s candidacy, the Daily News expressed a different kind of elation: “I’M WITH STUPID!” blared the “wood” on the tabloid’s cover. “Hate minds think alike: Palin endorses Trump.” And the liberal-media elites — more typically Times readers, who, if they dipped into the Daily News at all, turned to it for sports or a hit of gossip — ate it up. Lawrence O’Donnellheld it up on his MSNBC show, and Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation, tweeted, "Who's coming up with NYC's Daily News tabloid covers? They sizzle."
