What a former Newsday staffer says: “Stories are held for months at a time, killed or watered down because the leaders cannot make a decision or are scared of aggressive reporting. They talk about watchdog reporting but they suppress such stories because of fear about getting complaints. And the subjects of those stories can call and get a piece held or killed.”
What Newsday PR says: “We are declining to comment on these groundless assertions that appear to originate from a small number of disgruntled employees. Newsday has long been respected for its straightforward, independent reporting on behalf of the people of Long Island.”
I’d like hear what current and former Newsday staffers have to say about this lengthy Long Island Press cover story.
