Newsday was bought by Cablevision, and Newsday has had recent personnel shifts and redesigns. There have been huge financial losses at Newsday. I am determined […]
KW: I wonder what this is about? The Newsday on-line format that they instituted in the past few weeks or so is so ad-heavy and picture-heavy. I wonder if this person simply had too much integrity to stay with the superficial circus that Newsday is becoming? I am so interested to see if the gentleman […]
