Newsday Censors the NY Green Party, Again

For years Newsday has cut Green Party coverage out of articles.

Green Party of Suffolk Calls For End to Bullying of the Homeless

The Green Party of Suffolk calls for the prosecution of Suffolk County Leg. John H. Kennedy (R-Hauppauge) under New York State anti-bullying laws, for his ostracization of homeless school children in his district.  Leg. Kennedy’s actions remind the Green Party of the atmosphere of hate that was created against Latinos in Suffolk County, by form​er […]

Green Party Renews Call for Moratorium on Tasers in Suffolk

“The Green Party of Suffolk is outraged to discover that Suffolk County has continued using Tasers against its residents,” said its chair Roger Snyder. “It is inconceivable that Suffolk has continued to use Tasers given the questions about the Taser-related death of Darryl Bain  in 2009.” Snyder repeated the Green Party’s plan to protect the […]

Ron Thomson’s life and work honored in Newsday (via PeaceSmiths)

Ron Thomson was a longtime PeaceSmiths supporter and volunteer. After he passed away in February, we did a tribute to him at the March Coffeehouse, and displayed his self-portrait. Ron Thomson’s work is currently on display at The Circle Gallery in Amityville. And, Newsday did a nice story on Ron,s life … Read More via […]

Help for Wyandanch School District

Newsday reports: “Wyandanch’s board president says the system should close and send its 1,900 students to other districts nearby.” KW writes: I know that school district issues are complicated. School districts are not just bureaucracies, they are also quasi-governmental entities. Still, I think the bottom line of the current problem with the Wyandanch Schools is […]

Newsday article: Wrong on diversity, wrong on standardized tests

KW writes: I was outraged by a recent Newsday article which put forth a possible theory for declining test scores. Link and excerpt from Newsday article first, my comments below: (excerpt from) Newsday Dip in statewide SAT scores blamed on student diversity by John Hildebrand /September 13, 2010 A report was released showing New York […]

Newsday’s mediocre coverage of anti-SB1070 immigration rally

Kimberly writes: Since Newsday represents the status quo, corporate media, I suppose one must be grateful that they covered a progressive rally at all. Still, the inaccuracies matter, and flavor the discourse a certain way. Newsday was correct that there were about 50 people at the Port Jefferson vigil/rally against SB1070. Though, it was a […]

Newsday Names Sales Exec New Publisher

(excerpt from) Long Island Press Newsday has named one of their new sales executives publisher of Long Island’s lone daily and promoted the former publisher head of the Newsday Media Group, Cablevision Systems Corp. announced Tuesday. Fred Groser, who Newsday reports was hired earlier this year as senior vice president of sales, has been tapped […]

Hofstra to 1/3 of Voters: Drop Dead, Again

Hofstra has a history of ignoring and/or dismissing third party candidates. At the 2008 Presidential, real, third party candidates were not allowed. This time, in 2010, Hofstra is hosting a “Renew New York Initiative” which is only inviting the two, major parties, and will be aired on Newsday/News 12, ironically, an oppressive media duopoly.

Suffolk Police, federal probes and better practices…

Gggggrrrr! It is such a shame that our biggest, local newspaper is Newsday, and they cut and ran behind a pay wall. It is really abusive of them to use our elected officials as sources, and take all the privileges of the media, and then force people to pay Newsday, or use their other corporate […]

Action alert: Don’t let News12 throw away community comments

See a sample letter and News12 contact info at the bottom of this post. News clips below. News 12 created a community format to broadcast a recent “State of the County” message by Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy. According to Newsday, an aid at Steve Levy’s office gave a call to News12 and shut that […]

Newsday has cut you off!

KW: On a splash page at Newsday.com it announces that their content will be pay-only as of October 28th. After that day, in order to read Newsday on line, you will have to subscribe, or be an Optimum on-line customer with them and register with them. A story at Editor and Publisher here puts it […]

Please comment: What could Newsday do to become profitable?

KW: As you may have heard, Newsday publisher Tim Knight has resigned (or, “abruptly resigned” as Elizabeth Benjamin at the Daily News described it.) (The NY Times story is: here. 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 […]

LI Newsday publisher resigns!

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 […]
