  • Robert Moses’ name should be mud: New York State should remove the racist man’s name from public…

    … For 44 years, Robert Moses ruled over New York. Unelected, his power drawn from up to 12 concurrent city, state and federal appointments, he used his unparalleled control of public authorities with impunity. Deftly utilizing loopholes and creating new law, Moses had his own shadow government, with his own police force, flag, and an island under the Triborough (now Robert F. Kennedy) Bridge. There is no debate over the sheer magnitude of what he built. His accomplishments bestride New York: 416 miles of highways, 13 bridges, 658 playgrounds and housing for 150,000 people. He constructed parkways, tunnels, beaches, zoos,...
  • The Unsolved Mystery of Judge Joseph Force Crater's Disappearance

    New York Daily News ^ | Monday, August 14, 2017 | Jay Maeder
    At least until the first week of August, it appeared to have been a pretty good year for Joseph Force Crater. He was 41 years old, a good Tammany Hall Democrat, widely regarded as a comer. Gov. Franklin Roosevelt had recently named him to the state Supreme Court bench. Some felt he was on the fast track to big things, perhaps even the Supreme Court of the United States. Then he stepped into a New York City taxicab and vanished from the face of the Earth. Maybe he ended up in the tropics with a sackful of cash and a...
  • Yankees Drop Kate Smith's Version of 'God Bless America' Because People Were Racist in the 1930s

    This is a tricky one, but is worth examining: Yankees drop Kate Smith’s "God Bless America" after questions of possible racism arise https://t.co/mbDdQ5OrgT— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) April 19, 2019 From The Washington Post: The New York Yankees reportedly confirmed Thursday that they were no longer playing a Kate Smith version of “God Bless America” during the seventh inning of home games, after the team learned of a Depression-era song she’d recorded that raised questions of possible racism. Two songs cited by the New York Daily News, which broke the story, included “That’s Why Darkies Were Born,” a 1931 hit for...

    Meatless Mondays matter: In praise of New York City schools overhauling their menus once a week By Jessica Scott-Reid Mar 12, 2019 | 10:25 AM Building on a major expansion this past fall, Mayor de Blasio just announced that Meatless Mondays will be in public schools across the nation’s largest city starting next academic year. Not surprisingly, immediate online reactions ignited increasingly common debates over the consumption of animal products, from concerns about forcing vegetarianism on children, to calls to remove dairy as well. Ultimately though, eliminating meat from school meals one day a week is a positive and necessary...

    A federal court of appeals in New York on Monday moved a step closer to unsealing documents that could reveal new evidence in the case of Jeffrey Epstein, who’s been accused of being part of an international sex trafficking operation. A three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals gave the parties until March 29 to argue their case that the documents detailing the alleged international sex trafficking operation should remain sealed. The evidence will be made public unless the lawyers make a convincing argument, the panel said, according to the Miami Herald. An unusual coalition of media organizations, a...

    A former personal assistant for Harvey Weinstein claims she was sexually harassed for almost two years. Sandeep Rehal, who quit in February 2015, is filing a federal lawsuit in New York against Weinstein and his company, alleging gender discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation. Rehal claims that she was forced to buy erectile dysfunction medication for Weinstein and “play maid to his sexual encounters.” She also claims she was sexually harassed during her time with Weinstein, but said she was worried about coming forward with her allegations until dozens of other women made similar claims. “No one should have to endure...

    A Brooklyn precinct commander is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly threatening the celebrity’s life — telling his officers at a roll call to “shoot him on sight,” the Daily News has learned. Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez, the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, allegedly made the threat last June 7, when the actor and “In Da Club” rapper was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx. During a roll call inside the 72nd Precinct stationhouse, Gonzalez told his officers if they saw 50 Cent at the boxing match, known as a...

    Over the past week, it’s fair to say Democrats have seemed, well, overly-caffeinated. Howard Schultz, the billionaire former CEO of Starbucks, has the left apoplectic since floating the idea that he is seriously considering running for President — as an independent. Since embarking on his media tour, Democrats from all corners have come out to torpedo the political newcomer, and self-proclaimed lifelong Democrat. With visions of Ross Perot, Ralph Nader and Jill Stein dancing maniacally in their heads, no doubt, the fear that Schultz will take votes away from their party nominee in 2020 aren’t unfounded. That’s usually the way...

    Lawyer Robert Barnes named several celebrities and media personalities he intends to sue for libel against some students of the Covington Catholic High School, whom he represents. In a Jan. 26 Fox News interview, Barnes specifically mentioned Reza Aslan, Iranian-American writer and commentator; Matthew Dowd, ABC News political analyst and former chief strategist for the George W. Bush campaign; actor Michael Rapaport; and The New York Daily News. The trial lawyer took up the students' case after media and social media whipped up a storm maligning the Kentucky students over their encounter with several Native American activists following the Jan....

    A disgraced ex-NYPD lieutenant facing sentencing for bribery conspiracy has spilled the beans on the depth of alleged corruption in the department’s License Division, detailing accusations of special treatment for President Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Michael Cohen and an unidentified ally of Mayor de Blasio. Former Lt. Paul Dean says in papers filed in Manhattan Federal Court Wednesday that a culture of corruption within the unit responsible for processing city gun permits was enabled by former Commissioner Bill Bratton, among others.
  • Trump 'never spoke' with Michael Cohen about false testimony, Rudy Giuliani says

    President Trump did not speak with Michael Cohen before he testified falsely before Congress about plans to develop a skyscraper in Moscow during the 2016 campaign, Rudy Giuliani said Monday, backing off previous assertions that such talks may have taken place. The former New York mayor, who serves as Trump’s top lawyer in Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, said he had confirmed the matter with previous members of the President’s legal team, including ex-lead counsel John Dowd. “The President never spoke with Cohen about the congressional testimony,” Giuliani told the Daily News. However, Giuliani acknowledged Trump’s legal team conversed with Cohen’s...
  • (NY Dem. Governor Candidate) Cynthia Nixon self-identifies as 'queer,' not lesbian

    Actress Cynthia Nixon has been routinely described as trying to become the state’s first lesbian governor. But Nixon actually doesn't self-identify as a lesbian. She considers herself queer, campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said. Queer - one of the Qs in the LGBTQ movement, along with questioning—encompasses people who don't necessarily feel they fall under any specific label. Queer for decades had been used as a derisive term to attack nonheterosexuals. But in recent years, the term has been reclaimed by some - especially younger people - in the LGBTQ community. Hitt declined to discuss the reasons why Nixon identifies as...

    The collapse of the New York Daily News could not happen to a more deserving enterprise. The editors abused their power and debased the public discourse with cover pages that increasingly ridiculed the President of the United States, finally depicting the leader of the free world as a pile of poo poo. I get that they had the right to do that. I vehemently argue against what they did, and now having bored their sugar daddy billionaire, the editors find themselves adrift and unemployed under new owners who will not subsidize their infantile behavior. Staffs at other papers are rallying...
  • The Daily News Was Superman’s Paper—Tronc Fed It Kryptonite

    By noon on Monday, Bavaria Bierhaus, a downtown bar on Stone Street, a short walk from the offices of the New York Daily News at 4 New York Plaza, was already filling up with day-drinkers who had just been fired from the century-old tabloid, along with a few colleagues who have managed—at least for the moment—to hold onto their jobs. “It’s all a blur right now,” said a staffer who narrowly avoided being axed in what colleagues variously described as “a massacre” and “a bloodbath.”

    The New York Daily News announced on Monday plans to eliminate half of its newsroom as part of a broader effort to refocus the newspaper. Daily News staff was notified of the cuts in an email sent by the company's human resources department that also detailed a new direction for the paper, with an increased focus on breaking news with particular attention paid to crime, civil justice and public responsibility. It will still cover local news and sports, the email said. Journalists for the newspaper were called to a 9 a.m. meeting and then told to wait for the email,...

    The struggling Daily News is expected to begin another massive round of layoffs on Monday, The Post has learned. The cuts at the teetering tabloid, which some insiders feared would range as high as 70 percent of staff, are expected to be among the largest in the paper’s 99-year history — and could include editor-in-chief Jim Rich, insiders said. On Monday, Rich’s job description on his Twitter home page was changed from Daily News Editor-in-Chief to “Just a guy sitting at home watching journalism being choked into extinction.” Rich also tweeted on Monday: “If you hate democracy and think local...

    The New York Daily News is known for being a bit tabloidy and not exactly a bastion of hard hitting news, but their latest headline is just shameful. Who let this go to print? Good grief. pic.twitter.com/8DbOF2mgUh— Brit Hume (@brithume) May 15, 2018 The nasty headline leaves out that Hamas helped orchestrate Monday's violent protests. The rioters stormed the Gaza-Israeli border, despite being warned, with firebombs and other explosive devices, so IDF confronted them with force of their own. Over 50 individuals were killed and over 2,000 injured in the exchange. Reports reveal that 10 of those killed were members...

    An opinionated tabloid cover can be effective, but only if the point made is so obvious that an entire audience can see and relate to it. It also helps if it is humorous and has a witty headline. What it's not is garbage that looks as though it comes straight from fake news, or compares apples to oranges in the name of promoting the propaganda of some unhappy terrorist group.

    MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said on Thursday that people close to President Trump told him during the campaign that Trump has "early stages of dementia." During MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Scarborough said Trump is "completely detached from reality." "You have somebody inside the White House that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit," Scarborough said.
