Times follows up on ESDC revenue revision; Post editorial page ignores it
Atlantic Yards Report
In an article headlined Agency Cuts Atlantic Yards Revenue Estimate the Times followed up on the Empire State Development Corporation's revenue cut, a story broken yesterday on this blog.
In the online coverage, but not the print edition (page B4), the Times added some skepticism from an outside observer.
Then Norman Oder compares editions and notes that the late edition coverage of the drop in tax revenue for the Atlantic Yards project was pared down, while the coverage of the scandal over the attempted extortion of Yoko Ono got more print. Oder finds it "brutally weird," but we're pretty sure that Oder isn't really in the Times's target demographic.
Norman Oder then continues to analyze the coverage by the Post and Post editorial board.
