News Corp takes another bite out of the Big Apple. So will News Corp try and bid for the New York Daily News, to go with the Col Allan-edited New York Post for a pigeon pair of under-performing tabloids in the Big Apple? News and the Murdochs loom as the most logical company to attempt to buy the News after its owner, Mort Zuckerman, a billionaire real estate developer, put the paper on the market overnight.

Zuckerman told staff in a memo overnight that he had not been interested in selling the Daily News (which he has owned since buying it out of bankruptcy in 1993), but had changed his mind after receiving approaches several weeks ago.
