Most are either British or Australian. New York Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman has a track record of hiring Brits to run the paper and that may explain why he decided to overlook Myler&#39;s connections to the phone-hacking scandal.</p> <p> Myler replaces Kevin Convey, a Boston guy and former editor of the Boston Herald, who had been editing the NYDN for less than two years.</p> <p> It is also possible Zuckerman hired Myler to get under the skin of his great commercial rival, Rupert Murdoch, owner of the New York Post.</p> <p><a
