Schiff was instrumental in the growth and prosperity of the New York Post. While she initially used the publication to promote her liberal viewpoints, she eventually moved the newspaper to a middle ground position. She initiated the sensationalist style that has been a hallmark of the publication and an extremely popular format with the public.
