Um, wait a second. This is a Newsday story, written about Newsday, citing "sources" about Newsday.
No one in your own company would go on the record if only to deny the Post's report?
Sounds like chaos to me.
At the very least, Cablevision and its Newsday executives have demonstrated they don't understand the first thing about newspapers or transparency. Funny when you're a media company.
Um, wait a second.
This is a non-story in the Post. Why would someone at Newsday comment on it?

A Newspaper should be run and staffed by people who have roots in that community, not some interloper who comes in with truckloads full of cash and proceeds to exploit that newspaper for his own personal vanity and agenda. When Alicia Gugenheim Patterson started Newsday, she did it with the serious goal of giving her community a voice. The Dolans have used this paper to squelch the voices of dissent (at least those that disagree with THEIR agenda). It is a real shame. Newsday used to be such a prestigious paper. It is not now.

The only truely disturbing aspect of this story is the amazing lack of transparency from people who come to expect it from everyone else.
