The Daily News won a Pulitzer Prize for public service in 2017 for exposing the misuse of eviction laws by the New York City Police Department.
Alden Global Capital
The Alden Global Capital Daily News is owned by a hedge fund. It is also considered a “vulture hedge fund,” meaning that it targets distressed assets and businesses. However, while Alden is a large media company with a broad range of interests, its recent history makes it appear that it isn’t entirely out of the woods. For one thing, the company has sold off some real estate assets, and its employees are being laid off.
The company has made headlines lately for decimating newsrooms. The company recently acquired the Daily News from Tribune Publishing for $630 million. The previous owner, Tronc, had already laid off half of the staff. The current ownership of the Daily News is following a similar playbook.
