Colin Myler, the final editor of the News of the World who has been a key figure in the unravelling phone-hacking scandal in the UK, has crossed back over the Atlantic to take the helm of the New York Daily News. Myler's appointment as editor-in-chief of New York's biggest-selling tabloid gives him a chance to wreak revenge on the Murdoch family, with whom he has had strained relations in recent months as the hacking scandal unfolded. Rupert Murdoch, who effectively sacked him when he shut down the News of the World in July 2011, also owns the great rival of the Daily News, the New York Post. Martin Dunn, a former editor of the Daily News, said Myler was "obviously very upset at what transpired at News of the World. This will be a great opportunity for him to take his journalistic skills into battle with the Murdoch family in Rupert's own backyard."
