New York Daily News Cover After San Bernardino: ‘GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS’

The New York Daily News skewered politicians’ “thoughts and prayers” reaction to America’s latest mass shooting, this time with 14 dead in San Bernardino, Calif., with its cover on Thursday.

The headline read “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.” The story’s first line, “Prayers aren’t working.”

Here’s the cover:

The Daily News has always taken a firm anti-gun violence stance. After two Virginia journalists were killed on-air, the tabloid’s cover read “AMERICA’S FULL OF IT” with an editorial calling out the country’s gun obsession.

After the rampage in Santa Barbara in 2014, the paper’s cover read: “AMERICA IN DENIAL.”

Flagging Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul (KY) criticized the cover.
