    Dennis Delucia faces 46 months when sentenced on an extortion conviction, and his lesbian daughter Donna has submitted a letter to Brooklyn federal judge Kiyo Matsumoto in an attempt to humanize the reputed Colombo capo who was supportive of her coming out process as reported by John Marzulli for the Daily News: "My dad accepted me, embraced me and has supported me. His love and acceptance helped me through the rough times and growing pains." Donna now lives in Kentucky with her partner and their 9-year-old boy, and she would like a light sentence for her gangster dad because "I...

    It appears that simple fact checking isn't part of the reporting process at the New York Daily News. Even worse, the story that they declined to fact check was about an explosive situation in Sanford, Florida where supposedly neo-nazis were patrolling the streets in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting. The Daily News finally revised their story but only after being contacted by professor William Jacobson of the Legal Insurrection blog who did the fact checking for them with the Sanford police that they should have done in the first place. Here is the Daily News excerpt below the...

    The South Jersey Democrat leader George Norcross and a group of businessman announced today they will buy Philadelphia's two major daily newspapers, The Inquirer and the Daily News, and the website philly.com for $55 million. The purchase of Philadelphia Media Network Inc. from a group of hedge funds underscored the growing influence of Norcross, 56, a wealthy insurance executive and arguably the most powerful Democrat in New Jersey. (snip) "I don't think George is buying this paper because he's a big believer in the first amdendment or because he wants to hold the powerful accountable," Paul Davies, a former deputy...

The scandalous details are revealed in the highly-anticipated tell-all "The Rogue: Searching for The Real Sarah Palin," written by best-selling author Joe McGinniss.

The sharp-shooting Rice - who spent one season with the Knicks - was playing in the annual "Great Alaska Shootout" while Palin was a sports reporter with Anchorage television station KTUU, the Enquirer said.

    The New York Daily News is demonstrating that PDA's (Palin Derangement Awards) just never go out of style - celebrating yet another triumph in liberal media condescension by judging Sarah Palin to be one of 2009's worst celebrity parents. Palin shares the limelight with the selfless and humble parents of the balloon boy, David Hasselhoff, the Pez dispenser emulating Octomom, and Courtney Love. Having recently secured Politifact's ‘Lie of the Year', in which one is seemingly bestowed the honor of liar simply for pointing out obvious questions involving a so-called ‘death panel' known as the Independent Medicare Advisory Board -...

  • Scoopable Litter - How Rudy's Campaign Helped the Post Snatch The News From The NY Daily News!

    Rudy Giuliani's fundraising may not be presidential yet, but his campaign's seat-of-the-pants media manipulation—another requirement for contenders—is looking pretty good. The result: Giuliani grabbed the front pages of two New York City tabloids on the same day by giving one paper's scoop to the other. On March 23, both the Post and Daily News splashed on their front pages a revelation about Rudy's wife No. 2, the former Judi Nathan. Her revelation? Rudy is not her husband No. 2 but is really her third. Such news would likely hurt Giuliani only among religious conservatives, and they don't like his gay-people-accepting,...

In effect, no one was watching. As a result, 9/11 recovery aid was used to finance a plethora of projects...

    Living in New York, I have no choice but to read the New York Times every day. I try to leaven it with the Daily News and the New York Post, but it's a witch's brew.

    The mainstream media have two complementary tactics in covering homosexual-related news: Flooding the zone with stories portraying gays as victims or heroes, and damming up the flow of information, when it would present gays in a less than favorable light. And sometimes both tactics are used within the same story.Consider coverage of the illegal same-sex “weddings” in San Francisco and New Paltz, New York. Several stories on the New Paltz “weddings” mentioned Tom Duane, an openly gay New York State Senator, who represents the Chelsea section of Manhattan.On March 2, Ulster County District Attorney Donald Williams charged New Paltz Mayor...

Schuyler was, simply, the greatest black journalist this country has ever produced. (Normally, I eschew qualifiers like "greatest black," as opposed to "greatest," period, but this is journalism we're talking about. I will never, in five lifetimes of sitting in newspaper morgues, looking at microfilms of ancient newsprint, be able to read enough to determine who America's greatest journalist was.)

    Military police barred journalists from entering their offices Friday, defying a court order to allow the country's only independent daily newspaper to resume publishing. Police shut down the Daily News a week ago for failing to register under the strict media laws imposed by President Robert Mugabe's government. Police evicted the staff, removed the newspaper's computers and occupied its offices and printing plant. On Thursday, High Court Judge Younis Omerjee ordered police to halt their operation. But police prevented the newspaper's staff from returning to work Friday. Newspaper bosses had pledged to publish an eight-page newspaper but employees remained on...

Judge Yunis Omerjee granted a court order requested by the paper, which has often been critical of President Robert Mugabe, allowing it to resume operations pending the outcome of an application to register under tough media laws.

The closing of the Daily News comes amid a government crackdown on dissent as Zimbabwe struggles with an economic collapse and international isolation.

In Washington, the United States urged Zimbabwe's government on Monday to allow the Daily News and the Daily News on Sunday...
