Perhaps it’s just poor attempts at humor, but the audacious headlines being churned out by the New York Daily News is starting to seriously grate on people.
It’s political ideology run amok.
The Daily News’ most recent look on social media at the next morning’s front page prompted one user to refer to the newspaper as “a f***king comic book joke.”
The recurrent effort Tuesday featured a prejudicial headline tagging the GOP as the “Party of Pro-Death” for standing firm against President Obama’s latest encroachment on the Second Amendment.

The aforementioned response — strong language and all — is a good sign that the newspaper may want to rethink the strategy, unless the goal is simply to annoy the hell out of its customer base:
@NYDailyNews You guys are a fucking comic book joke now. And now even remotely funny. How old are you people that work there?

Turns out, “Leon” has lots of company, with one user noting that the Daily News’ over-the-top bias — which ignores the millions of deaths at Planned Parenthood facilities — is a sign the newspaper has given up on the “whole journalism thingy.”
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@NYDailyNews Nice to let your readers…( All 250) get a preview….you are insane. What a rag.

.@NYDailyNews How many humans were aborted last year? How many did Obama drone? How many guns/rockets did Obama sell to ISIS/Drug Cartels?

@NYDailyNews Not surprising that almost no one buys your crappy newspaper.

Omg @NYDailyNews you are so pathetic. Party of pro-death? Who are the ones that support abortion and defend planned parenthood? Oh.
— Brian Dominic (@Brian51NY) January 6, 2016
@NYDailyNews actually, the pro-death party is the one that viciously defends the baby killers at Planned Parenthood. The DNC.

@NYDailyNews I’m sure you lost more in 2015 than the $20 million in 2014. What a joke of a pubilcation
