Daily News Publishes Daily News Exclusive

NY_DNAs you know, we here at FishbowlNY hate the term “exclusive,” mostly because absolutely no one cares, but also because it’s rarely actually an exclusive. However, we have to hand it to the New York Daily News. It’s taking the term to new heights (lows?) by publishing an “exclusive” about a Daily News story.

Today, the paper ran the headline “EXCLUSIVE: Daily News Campaigning to Save City’s Beloved Carriage Horses,” and then explained its fight to rescue the equines, complete with an op-ed by Liam Neeson. Of course this is not an exclusive.

At best it’s simply an article; at worst, a press release. But the Daily News’ editors felt like slapping “exclusive” on there because why the hell not? Everyone knows it’s a completely meaningless word anyway.

Bravo Daily News. Or rather, EXCLUSIVE: FishbowlNY Says Good Job Daily News.
