Daily News Ailments Could Mean Conservative Future for New York City Media

Photo by Holly Jamison

Opinion: Persistent New York Post could shape city news coverage for years.

The News’ continued decline will leave local television news organizations taking story leads from the Post which, like its parent Fox News Corporation, revels in its conservative arrogance.”

— Clem Richardson

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 / — Several friends, all New York City residents, and I met online recently for a Zoom catch-up chat.

I asked if they had noted an historic event earlier that month – the Tribune Publishing company announcement that the New York Daily News was abandoning its Lower Manhattan newsroom, leaving its severely diminished staff to continue producing the paper from their homes. None had. But few announcements will have as immediate and lasting impact on New York City and its citizens.

Newspapers are where other news media not only get their news, but all too often where other media take their cues on how a story is told. I spent just short of two decades as a News editor and columnist after stints at New York Newsday, the Miami Herald, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and the Anderson Independent newspapers. Each of these great institutions is now fighting to survive. Tribune Publishing in July cut the Daily News staff to 50 to cover a city of 8.4 million people during a pandemic and economic crisis.Of course it can’t be done – but that doesn’t mean the cutbacks aren’t justified.

Far from its post-World War II circulation peak of 2.5 million daily and 4 million on Sunday, the Daily News now limps along on print circulation just over 200,000. Its 2020 media sales packet boasts of 2.5 million weekly online and print readers, buttressed by over 28 million monthly unique views online. In contrast, The New York Times in 2019 had 483,000 print subscribers and in May 2020 announced it had topped 6 million online subscribers. Those numbers place The New York Times third on top 2019 print newspaper subscription lists, trailing USA Today (1,621,000), The Wall Street Journal (1,011,00), but just ahead of the New York Post’s 426,000.

Gone are the days when every other New York City morning subway commuter held a Daily News, New York Post, New York Times or Wall Street Journal. But every print, radio, television, magazine or online assignment editor in the city still begins the day combing through local newspapers for stories reporters can “match,” meaning get the same or close to the same story, or “advance,” expand with new details or directions. Unless instructed otherwise, reporters assume they should also reproduce the tone of the original story. That’s one reason so many articles on the same subject sound alike across news outlets.

That’s a problem when copying the Post. A long- standing Daily News rival in local news coverage, the arch-conservative Post, twice (1976 and 1993) rescued from oblivion by conservative media magnate Rupert Murdoch, has long been considered a lost leader for Murdoch’s News Corp. The tabloid once lost an estimated $100 million yearly, a cost News Corp was rumored to be willing to sustain in exchange for an influential voice in the world’s media capital. Each of Murdoch’s New York Post purchases was allowed to save the paper from closing and was preceded by a waiver of the Federal Communications Commission rule barring personal or corporate ownership of a newspaper and television station in the same market – News Corp, which also owns Fox News, is headquartered in Manhattan.

Post jobs were saved. But now media are hurting financially across the board. According to the Pew Center for Research, more than 27,000 journalists have been laid off or otherwise left the profession since 2008. Newspapers have been particularly hard hit, with staffs cut roughly in half between 2008 and 2019, according to Pew stats. Meanwhile tech giants Facebook and Alphabet, Google’s parent company, are expected to claim $231 billion in 2020 ad revenue – the second consecutive year ad dollars for these two companies will exceed that of all American television outlets. Every New York City newspaper is short-staffed and has had layoffs and buyouts. Radio listenership in the age of Spotify and Pandora is so paltry that National Public Radio now makes more from its podcasts than from contributions supporting on-air programing.

The News’ continued decline will leave local television news organizations taking story leads from the Post which, like its parent Fox News Corporation, revels in its conservative arrogance, as witnessed by its covers. The News’ demise would be the payoff for New Corp’s decade-long commitment to sustaining the money-losing Post as a conservative voice in one of the country’s more liberal and most influential cities. Just as Fox News’ – arguably the most influential television network in the country and the flagship of News Corp’s media empire – conservatism has become more ridiculous – and racist – reporters and media outlets copying and replicating Post news clips will follow suit. It’s already happening.

Two days after Tropical Storm Isaias’s August 4, 2020, dash through the tri-state, the Post and other local media were already lambasting utilities for failing to restore power to 2.5 million affected customers. Few outlets mentioned that only Hurricane Sandy felled more trees locally than Isaias – and it took five years to recover from that August 2012 hurricane turned tropical storm. Nor was there much public consideration of the problematic logistics involved in coordinating a manpower-intensive disaster response during a pandemic. A fundamental principle of Fox News, the Post and today’s Grand Old Party is that government is bad, a convenient stance for the moneyed since government is the only entity that can control rich people and corporations.

Allowing that idea to hijack New York City media as we begin what will undoubtedly be a difficult and expensive recovery from the worse economic disruption since the Great Depression would be a coup for conservatives, who revel in government’s failure and lambaste its successes. “Be careful when you feel emotionally moved by the headline, and be even more careful when you agree with the headline or when the headline makes you happy, because that’s when you need to watch out,” British broadcaster Alexis Conran cautioned in a 2019 Ted Talk.

Sage advice for local media in a Daily News-less NYC.

NFL Star Benjamin Watson, Thought Leaders to Faith Community: Nigeria Needs Justice, Americans Must Help

This is one of the most consequential issues we face. It’s critical that we act now to move toward a more peaceful and unified Nigeria.”

— Stephen Enada, co-founder of ICON

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 28, 2020 / — The International Committee on Nigeria (ICON) convened NFL star Benjamin Watson, along with thought leaders Jonathan Stonestreet and Dr. David Anderson and Dr. Gloria Puldu of the Leah Sharibu Foundation today, to discuss the ongoing persecution of Nigeria’s Christians. Their message was clear, Nigeria needs justice and Americans must help. The group discussed things the U.S. faith community can do to achieve that goal.

“Whether it’s in the U.S. or abroad, violations of justice are a threat to us all,” said NFL star Benjamin Watson. “Our common humanity necessitates intentional involvement. We have people in pain right now and we must protect them. We need to send a special envoy to Nigeria and the Lake Chad region to oversee efforts to restore peace, Beyond that, we as people of faith need stand together as one unified body to support ministries on the ground and also actively advocate for justice and peace, not just in our own country, but in Africa and worldwide. We have voices, we need to use them.”

Since 2000, more than 90,000 innocent lives – mainly women and children – have been killed as a result of terrorist attacks throughout Nigeria. Astoundingly, ICON's tracker shows that nearly 3,000 more have been killed already this year. The violence has reached the threshold of genocide and is on track to become the Rwanda of this decade.

“The truth of the matter is that more people are talking about the atrocities in Nigeria, no one is arguing about what is happening, yet no one is stepping in to put a stop to the killing,” said Stephen Enada, co-founder of ICON. “Meanwhile, day after day, month after month, the death count is growing. It’s unconscionable. Our leaders need to act and until that happens, we need to continue to tell them that this is critically important.”

The awareness event comes as violence in Nigeria contintues to capture headlines worldwide as widespread protests against police brutality in Nigeria have turned violent. It’s been alleged the Nigerian government hired armed attackers to break up the protests injuring and even killing innocent people.

“Only an irresponsible government would hire people to engage its own citizens,” said Kyle Abts, co-founder of ICON. “Unfortunately, this attitude seems to be emblematic of the Buhari administration’s treatment of the Nigerian people which is why the United States needs to step-in to help stop the mass genocide taking place in the country.”

In December, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recommended designating Nigeria a Country of Particular Concern, effectively calling out the government for tolerating human rights and religious freedom violations, sending a strong signal that our government will not stand for these abuses. ICON and others close to the issue, including members of Congress and advocacy groups, say there is more to be done. Specifically, they’re asking President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to appoint a special envoy to Nigeria and the Lake Chad region.

Last month, ICON released a survey that found two-thirds of North Carolina voters are more likely to vote for President Trump if he sends a special envoy to Nigeria to address the persecution.

A special envoy is a senior official appointed by the U.S. Department of State to deal with a specific set of issues. In this case, the specific charge would be to oversee discussions with the Nigerian government to restore peace to the country. With the full backing of the U.S. government, the special envoy would have the power to hold perpetrators of religious violence and other crimes accountable.

“We cannot allow this to continue. Without intervention, I am confident Nigeria is headed down a road similar to Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Darfur, and Myanmar,” Enada explained. “This is one of the most consequential issues we face. It’s critical that we act now to move toward a more peaceful and unified Nigeria.”

International Committee on Nigeria is a consortium of Nigerians and other nationalities who have combined efforts to help Nigeria. Our mission is to create a community where rule of law guides every facet of societal interactions in Nigeria. ICON promotes human dignity, the right to live, religious freedom, and the protection of the vulnerable against all forms of persecution.

Colorectal Cancer Organizations Applaud USPSTF’s Draft Recommendations for Screenings to Begin at Age 45

Image text: USPSTF has announced new draft guidelines for colorectal cancer screening: Screening for colorectal cancer should begin at 45. Share your support! Graphic includes the logos for the Colon Cancer Coalition, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and the Colo

Three leading colorectal cancer advocacy organizations applaud USPSTF’s newly released draft recommendations for screening to begin at age 45 and look to patients, survivors, and caregivers to share support for this life-saving update

Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and Colon Cancer Coalition Encourage Advocates to Voice Support for this Life-Saving Update

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, October 27, 2020 / — A group of colorectal cancer organizations, including the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Fight Colorectal Cancer (CRC), and Colon Cancer Coalition, today applaud the United States Preventative Services Task Force’s (USPSTF) draft recommendation to lower the screening age for colorectal cancer to 45 years old for average risk individuals.

Today’s news from the USPSTF begins a one-month public comment period ahead of finalizing the recommendation next year. The colorectal cancer organizations encourage advocates to show their appreciation by signing this letter of support and requesting the draft guidelines become final.

The group has released the following joint statement:

The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) announced its intent to recommend that colorectal cancer (CRC) screenings begin at 45 years old for individuals at average risk. The majority of health insurance carriers in the United States will follow the USPSTF recommendation once finalized. This means that people age 45 and older will, in most cases, be eligible for insurance reimbursement for CRC screening. This recommendation lowers the USPSTF’s recommendation from 50 to 45, and aligns with the American Cancer Society’s 2018 recommendation that screening begin at age 45 based on an analysis published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The recommendation is now in draft form and open for public comment.

A group of leading CRC non-profits, including the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and the Colon Cancer Coalition, are celebrating this draft recommendation as a success for health advocacy, and see it as a necessary step forward to protect the well-being of Americans. This change reflects updated CRC evidence particularly the upward trend in CRC diagnoses among people under age 50, known as young-onset or early-age-onset CRC. Alarmingly, the incidence of young-onset CRC has increased by 2% every year since 1990, with no end in sight.

75% of all young-onset cases are diagnosed between ages 40-49. Furthermore, a recent study demonstrated a steep increase in CRC incidence between ages 49 and 50, with most cases diagnosed at an invasive stage among patients 50 years old, specifically. This suggests that these cancers were developing undetected for several years prior to the diagnosis at age 50.

"In addition to prevention, diagnosing some cancers at an earlier stage could potentially be associated with more favorable cost-benefit and resource allocation balances and should be taken into account when estimating the potential effects of a screening threshold at 45 years of age,” according to a 2020 study appearing in JAMA.

This draft recommendation will be finalized next year and will benefit thousands of younger individuals who were previously unable to afford this life-saving screening due to lack of coverage by insurance carriers. On-time CRC screening is cancer prevention. Delays in screening give cancer time to grow and metastasize, which drastically cuts survival rates, results in exorbitant treatment costs, and affects quality of life for patients and their caregivers. This creates financial strain for many, on top of the emotional toll of a cancer diagnosis.

This disease often impacts people while at the height of their careers, building their families, and caring for older relatives. These are lives that need greater protection from CRC. Protection easily afforded through life-saving screening.

For these reasons, we congratulate the USPSTF for updating its stance in response to the alarming growth of young-onset CRC. This change will fulfill the USPSTF organizational mission “to improve the health of all Americans by making evidence-based recommendations about clinical preventive services.” There is ample evidence to lower the screening age now. Lowering the recommended age for screening is supported by both the science and a moral obligation to save lives. Therefore, we applaud the USPSTF for its recommendation to reduce the age of screening for those at average risk of colorectal cancer to 45.

To all of the patients, survivors, and caregivers of young- or early-onset colorectal cancer, the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Fight Colorectal Cancer and Colon Cancer Coalition recognize your experience is inextricably tied to this life-saving decision. Your journey and struggle with this disease has not been in vain.

As this is a draft recommendation, we urge you to share your story and voice your support for this new guidance directly to the USPSTF by November 23, when the comment period ends. All stories and comments shared here will be shared with the USPSTF at the close of the public comment period. Make your voice heard at

Bipartisan Retirement Legislation Announced

Insured Retirement Institute logo

IRI Says Proposal Will Enhance Workplace Retirement Plan Access and Features

Congress is demonstrating once again that retirement security is a bipartisan issue in which leaders from both political parties focus on solutions to benefit workers and retirees.”

— Wayne Chopus, IRI President & CEO

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, October 27, 2020 / — A comprehensive, bipartisan retirement security proposal to improve employer-provided retirement plans with enhanced access and features for workers was introduced today in the U.S. House of Representatives. The measure includes several provisions advocated by the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI).

The proposal, the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2020, comes nearly a year after the enactment of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act, the first comprehensive retirement security law in more than a decade. This latest proposal reflects the view – supported by IRI – that the SECURE Act was the first step in a process to address the nation’s looming retirement crisis where too few workers and retirees have adequate savings that will last throughout their retirement.

“Congress is demonstrating once again that retirement security is a bipartisan issue in which leaders from both political parties focus on solutions to benefit workers and retirees,” said Wayne Chopus, IRI President and CEO. “We are very appreciative of the leadership, hard work, and commitment of House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) and Ranking Member Kevin Brady (R-Texas) to introduce this legislation to help workers and retirees save more so they can enjoy a financially secure and dignified retirement.”

Earlier this year, IRI proposed a five-point plan to help retirement savers recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. IRI’s plan consisted of elements of its 2020 Federal Retirement Security Blueprint that would help workers keep money longer in tax-deferred retirement savings accounts and other proposals to help them save more now. Four of the five elements of the IRI plan are included in the Securing a Strong Retirement Act. Other recommendations from IRI’s 2020 Blueprint are also in the bill as are provisions that were introduced after the Blueprint was released in February.

“While the legislative calendar is limited for the remainder of the year, plenty of time still exists for Congress to act on this important proposal and deliver significant benefits to workers and retirees,” Chopus said.

Elements of IRI’s five-point plan included in the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2020:
• Increase required minimum distribution age to 75
• Eliminate barriers to allow greater use of lifetime income products
• Expand retirement saving opportunities for non-profit organization employees
• Clarify start-up tax credit to incentivize small businesses to join multiple employer plans/pooled employer plans

Additional IRI Retirement Security Blueprint provisions in the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2020:
• Help for employees to save for retirement while repaying student loans
• Allow catch-up contributions for Baby Boomers
• Establish a new tax incentive for employers who offer retirement plans to military spouses
• Authorizing 403b plans to invest in collective investment trusts
• Allows exchange-traded-funds (ETF) to be offered within variable insurance products

“We are eager to work with Chairman Neal and Ranking Member Brady and all of the members of the House Ways and Means Committee to expedite action on this bill and then work with Senate leaders to pass it and advance it to the White House,” Chopus said.

Bring Home an Old Friend During Adopt a Senior Pet Month

People who have adopted a senior dog say they would do it again in a heartbeat. Older dogs make ideal companions. They're calmer, usually housetrained, and so grateful for a home and somebody to love.”

— Lisa Lunghofer, Ph.D., Executive Director of The Grey Muzzle Organization

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, October 27, 2020 / — If there’s a silver lining to the pandemic, perhaps it’s that more Americans, longing for canine companionship, have opened their hearts and homes to at-risk senior dogs who might have never gotten a second chance.

In celebration of Adopt a Senior Pet Month this November, The Grey Muzzle Organization is asking everyone who adores an old dog to share why they #AdoptedASeniorDog on social media. When you show and tell the world about the joy that senior dogs bring into our lives, you’ll help inspire others to adopt an old dog to be their devoted friend during times of quarantine and beyond.

What is it about mature mutts that steal our hearts? Share the endearing qualities that make your senior dog shine by entering Grey Muzzle’s online contest. Simply post a photo and brief comments on your choice of social media and in the comments section of The Grey Muzzle Organization’s Facebook page with the hashtag #AdoptedASeniorDog. You and your dog could be chosen as one of the top ten posts to appear on Grey Muzzle’s website and win prizes. And just by sharing your story, you’ll be helping senior dogs who are waiting in shelters win the best prize of all: a forever home. Check out the contest rules and details at

“People who have adopted a senior dog say they would do it again in a heartbeat,” said Lisa Lunghofer, Executive Director of The Grey Muzzle Organization, a national nonprofit that provides grants to shelters and rescue groups helping to save and improve the lives of at-risk senior dogs across the nation. “Older dogs make ideal companions. They’re calmer than younger pups, usually housetrained, and so grateful for a home and somebody to love.”

In honor of Adopt a Senior Pet Month, The Grey Muzzle Organization is also releasing the results of a groundbreaking national study to examine efforts to promote the well-being of senior dogs and identify lifesaving strategies. This study was made possible by a generous grant from Maddie’s Fund.

According to a 2015 ASPCA survey, the adoption rate for senior dogs is lower than that of all other ages combined, and the live release rate is just over 50%. The Grey Muzzle Organization’s recent study, based on input from the group’s grantees including shelter directors, volunteers and senior dog adopters, found that the situation is changing and highlights innovative strategies to help save more at-risk senior dogs, age 7 and older.

“Our new study shows that despite obstacles and challenges facing senior dogs, it is possible to work together to achieve our vision of a world where every senior dog thrives and no old dog dies alone and afraid,” said Grey Muzzle’s Executive Director Lisa Lunghofer.
