New York ComPost (New York Post nickname)

The New York (NY) Post daily newspaper has leaned conservative under owner Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. A common unflattering nickname of the newspaper (cited in print since at least 2005) is the New York ComPost (or comPost or Compost).
Several other Post-named newspapers—such as the Washington (DC) Post—also have the ComPost nickname.
Wikipedia: New York Post
The New York Post is the 13th-oldest newspaper published in the United States and is generally acknowledged as the oldest to have been published continuously as a daily, although – as is the case with most other papers – its publication has been periodically interrupted by labor actions. Since 1993, it has been owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, which had owned it previously from 1976 to 1988 before being forced to sell it because of government restrictions on the press. It is the sixth-largest newspaper in the U.S. by circulation. Its editorial offices are located at 1211 Avenue of the Americas, in New York City, New York.

And typical of the New York Compost, which is not even an attempt at sober journalism.

The New York Times is more of an International newspaper than local paper anyway with Free access online and another scheduled rate-hike, with lil Free Giveaway newspaper, AM New York the largest circulation newspaper in Manhattan (where everything counts) and New York (Com)Post and Daily Confused (er, News) actually considering combining presses.
This town needs a (media) enema, anyway!

Typical Mushnick crap. How does that hypocrite still have a job? A Hall of Fame fraud if ever there was one — another reason they call it the New York ComPost.

The New York comPost is at it again. Expect the lies to get bigger and the attacks on veteran teachers to heat up. They are so predictable.
