FAIR and Gotham Gazette link to my Times Report
Earlier, on 9/5/05, the New York-centric web site Gotham Gazette, published by the Citizens Union Foundation, also linked to my report on its Recent Reports page.
This follows up on my 9/1/05 report, "The New York Times and Forest City Ratner's Atlantic Yards: High-Rises and Low Standards: A Pattern of Inadequate, Misleading, Mostly Uncritical Coverage." The report (link below) analyzes Times coverage of the proposed $3.5 billion project, the largest ever in Brooklyn, to build a basketball arena plus at least 16 high-rise buildings. Here I analyze further coverage of the project and also provide my own reporting.
