Mort Zuckerman is Happy with Colin Myler

Among the many damning quotes featured in the British panel’s report on Rupert Murdoch and News International, there was the revelation that Colin Myler, the current New York Daily News Editor-in-Chief, was charged with misleading Parliament during his testimony. The allegations apparently didn’t bother Mort Zuckerman. Ed Pilkington, the New York correspondent for The Guardian US, tweeted that Zuckerman said Myler “is doing a great job as Editor of the Daily News.”

It makes us wonder: What, exactly, does one have to do to not be doing a good job at the Daily News? The UK panel’s claim is just the latest storm cloud to gather over Myler’s head in a very short amount of time. He has already been accused of bullying British investigators and blamed for the entire phone hacking scandal by Murdoch.

Maybe the catch is that Myler hasn’t been arrested for any of those accusations, so Zuckerman is happy with things as they are. Ah, working at The Daily News: Just don’t get thrown in jail, everything else is fair game!
