On Thursday, the day after the deadly mass shooting in San Bernardino, the front of the paper featured tweets from Republican politicians announcing their "prayers" for San Bernardino along with the headline "God isn't fixing this." On Friday, the attention shifted to San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook, who was listed — along with Newtown shooter Adam Lanza, Aurora movie theater shooter James Holmes, and the NRA's Wayne LaPierre — as a "terrorist." Monday's cover is designed for those who "think nothing's wrong," and — with its photos of puppies, kittens, a polar bear with a cone stuck on its head, and the words "Everything is awesome!" — shows the Daily News' sarcasm game is strong.
