5 major NE papers to share content

    Star-Ledger, The Record, The Daily News, Times-Union of Albany and Buffalo News to begin sharing content.

    Not sure yet what the full ramifications of this are. It should be made clearer by the end of the week.

    Fewer writers, editors and photographers, I guess. This is fine if you're in Buffalo or Albany but it seems like it would dilute the content offerings in each of the three formerly competing NYC area papers.

    “We are excited to collaborate with these other papers,” Stephen Borg, Record publisher, stated in the release. “They excel in many areas. Record readers will benefit from expanded coverage. The Record will hopefully benefit the other papers in areas where we excel, like our coverage of the Meadowlands.”

    There you go, no more expense reports with tunnel tolls.

    I'm not a fan of the idea but I'm for anything that will stop the bleeding.

    Why do you feel it won't stop the bleeding?

    It's like putting a bandaid on a laceration that requires 50 stitches.

    I saw NE and was thinking, "The Globe, Herald, ProJo, Courant and, umm, umm"

    I think we need to refrain from saying NY is NE; it's northeast, not New England.

    Rant over
