This means war. Just months after News of the World closed and Colin Myler, the paper’s editor, was canned, he now has a new job. Myler has been appointed editor in chief of the New York Daily News, the city’s biggest-selling tabloid and the great rival of the New York Post—where Myler served five years as the second-ranking editor starting in 2001. Myler was reportedly unhappy with the way NotW owner Rupert Murdoch treated him as the scandal unfolded. Murdoch hired Myler to replace disgraced NotW editor Andy Coulson and to clean up the paper’s image.
