2005_09_newsday.jpgWith rumored yesterday, it's true: Newsday is scaling back its city edition, with 45 jobs being cut. Gothamist is sad to hear this because we've always thought that Newsday was underrated. Sure, the Daily News and NY Post are great for its hysteria and dogged crime reporting, and the NY Times is the NY Times. But Newsday's city reporting is straightforward and thorough, with hysteria coming from its columnists. Our favorite areas of Newsday are its transit and political coverage, and unsurprisingly, it has fantastic Queens coverage. We hope the city edition manages to continue on!
