Colin Myler made editor-in-chief of NY Daily News

Colin Myler, the last editor of the News of the World, has been appointed editor-in-chief of the New York Daily News. He replaces Kevin Convey, who was appointed in 2010.

According to The New York Times, in an e-mail to the staff, Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman said: “The New York Daily News is a great institution of American journalism which will only get better under the leadership of Colin.”

Myler was appointed executive editor of the New York Post in 2001 but left in 2007 to take over as editor of the News of the World after Andy Coulson resigned folowing the royal phone hacking affair.

Or as the New York Daily News reported it at the time: 'TOP EDITOR FLEES POST FOR LONDON TABLOID.'

Note how the 2007 NY Daily News report turned the collapsed trial of two Leeds United 'soccer' players from a charge of racially aggravated assault (or something similar) to one of 'rape'.
