CNG Watch: Brooklyn Paper/Courier-Life ignore District Service Cabinet meeting, as they reap Barclays Center advertising

Rupert Murdoch's Community Newspaper Group, which owns the Brooklyn Paper and the Courier-Life chain, didn't send any reporters to the Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meeting Thursday.

Is it just that the news about governmental oversight is "boring" (as opposed to, say, news about the "burger boom")? Or do the newspapers want to avoid "bad" news as they feature Barclays Center advertising? Both?

  1. Three questions:

    1) Why is Jon Stewart yelling?

    2) Why does he only have one (basket) ball?

    3) Why are there faint high-rise window lights to the south of the arena and non-existent Atlantic Yards residential buildings, where the actual buildings are only a few stories tall?
