New York Sun

Redirected from The New York Sun

The New York Sun is a daily newspaper published at New York City which debuted April 16, 2002. It is "the first general interest broadsheet newspaper to be launched in New York in two generations" (source: The Sun).

Its owners include the former Canadian "media baron" Conrad Black, who renounced his Canadian citizenship when the Canadian government forbade him to accept a British peerage. According to an article in the Boston Globe, the paper's staff include many well-known political conservatives. Its editor in chief is Emmett Tyrrell.

The original New York Sun was published from September 3, 1833 until January 4, 1950, when it merged with the New York World-Telegram to form a new paper called The World-Telegram and Sun which folded in 1967. The original Sun is best known for the editorial Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
