Chicago Tribune publisher Tronc has bought the New York Daily News, ending an era of independent ownership for the tabloid. It marks a shift from the papers previous owner, Mortimer B. Zuckerman, a real estate magnate and influential figure in the city who used the papers combative front pages to pass comment on political figures. Sep 6, 2017
