NEW YORK — The owner of two of the country’s largest newspapers has purchased the Daily News, a New York tabloid that is famous for generations of hard-punching reporting and irreverent headlines but that has struggled recently to find its place in the digital age. Tronc Inc., the publisher of the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune, announced the deal Monday night. The purchase gives Tronc and its chairman, Michael Ferro, who spent most of his childhood on Long Island, another brand name in old-school journalism. The big question will be whether the company can find a way to make the newspaper lucrative again.

Just two days after three black factory workers filed suit against Tesla for racist epithets and harassment, a former assembly line worker said he was bullied for being gay and threatened with violence at the Fremont factory. Jorge Ferro said the harassment started shortly after he began working at Tesla, and didn’t stop until he left the company, according to his lawsuit. The court filing alleges that Ferro was pushed out of the company after repeatedly refusing to stop the mistreatment and claiming he had an injury. A human resources representative allegedly told Ferro that he had to go, as there was “no place for handicapped people at Tesla,” the suit continued.
