Gotham tab noun pile spread preposition link

The monarchist takeover of the New York Post has been an open secret for some time now, but this one from the New York Daily News comes as a bit of a surprise. It packs a lot of redtop -- claim quotes, two noun piles, and a verb-replacing preposition -- into six words.

Are they driving on the wrong side of the road up there too?

Outstanding! It would work as a single noun pile without the 'in' as well. Then there might be space to say 'tweet'

I was wondering if removing the "in" would damage the fearful symmetry, but I kind of like the purity of the intact noun pile.

I think it'd be fine without: beginners can always mentally append "There is a ..." to the start if feeling uncertain
