The dailies ignore on the Yonkers corruption trial; what's wrong with the Times?




A Blog Atlantic Yards Reporter Cracks A Media Cover-Up

The dailies ignore on the Yonkers corruption trial; what's wrong with the Times?(Atlantic Yards Review)

So Bruce Bender, long the top government relations official for Forest City Ratner and former Chief of Staff for Council Speaker Peter Vallone, testifies yesterday in federal court about the developer's nearly desperate search for the vote that green-lighted the Ridge Hill project in Yonkers--a process that led to corruption charges against two others--and what do the New York dailies do?

They ignore it. (The suburban Journal News has been covering the story and so has the Excellent blogger of Atlantic Yards Report Norman Oder)

You can almost understand the New York Post, which did have a reporter there (and did cover the testimony last week of Bender's colleague Scott Cantone), and the New York Daily News, which didn't send a reporter.
