In print, however, the article appeared only in the newspaper's Brooklyn edition.
Part of a pattern
There's a pattern here. In March 2007, the newspaper relegated another scoop to the Brooklyn section: the explanation that the city would spend $100 million on land for the Atlantic Yards project as part of a $205 million contribution--far more than the originally contemplated $100 million in a 2/18/05 Memorandum of Understanding.
Similarly, in December 2006, the Daily News kept another important story of citywide interest--that the Empire State Development Corporation had slashed projected revenues--in the Brooklyn section.
Prominent stories sympathetic to FCR
But a slight and speculative story about vague and never-to-be-fulfilled Forest City Ratner promises for a new Brooklyn Tech High School made page 2.
And a story about the developers seemingly generous buyouts, headlined Bonanza, made the front page, but, no one followed up after I reported that city taxpayers actually supplied the cash.
