This kind of mistake is completely understandable, when you realize that that Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch.

It's the New York Post, the paper that gives tabloids a bad name.

Fred Dicker on vacation or something? Yep.
It was pretty much every patronage hack in Albany except Cuomo's staff who's been getting raises.

No, it probably really is an error. It's not like anybody has to make shiat up about how sleazy New York state government is. Usually the corrections go:

A correction: In yesterday's Daily Wharr we wrote that state senator Emptysuit had been caught with two underage hookers, naked and smeared with Hellman's mayonnaise. Authorities later clarified that the senator was in fact still wearing one sock, and was smeared with locally sourced garlic aioli and not Hellmann's, which is spelled with two n's. The Daily Wharr regrets the errors.

Scary Part 1: I went to the front page of the Post and tried to find the corrections link. I couldn't.

Scary Part 2: New York politicians have a...special...kind of corruption.

Scary Part 3: They think Texas is part of the South. Dinguses.

Maybe if the New York Post hacked his cell phone, they wouldn't have these kinds of problems.

His staff probably got at least a 3 inch raise.

How long is the average middle finger?

Allen. The end.: Scary Part 3: They think Texas is part of the South. Dinguses.


FWIW, it was a part of the Confederacy. Although I agree, I wouldn't want to be associated with the South either.
 
2011-11-02 12:22:42 PM  

skullkrusher: It is on that basis that The Post today endorses Attorney General Andrew Cuomo for governor -- in the hope, if not necessarily the full expectation, that he will be the strong, reform-driven chief executive the Empire State so desperately needs. (new window)

Or RUUUUPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEERRRRRRTTTTTTTTT!

Whichever you prefer.


To be fair, if they had given the endorsement to Paladino they probably wouldn't be in business anymore.

I can't actually find the old article. Subby says it was flat out lying, the correction says:

Due to an editing error, yesterday's edition of The Post incorrectly reported that Gov. Cuomo gave raises to his staff after he came into office, when, in fact, he reduced his salary and the pay of his top aides by 5 percent.

I mean, if it was a simple misplaced word or something, I gotta side with the NY Post. If it was a full length article about how Cuomo and his staff took raises that could not have been an editing error, then I'm with ya subby. So where's the original?

If this was the article, it has since been corrected:

ALBANY -- While unionized state workers are getting hit with three years of wage freezes, and Gov. Cuomo and his top aides are taking 5 percent wage cuts, state Senate Republicans are doling out pay hikes to most of their Capitol staffers, The Post has learned.

Read more: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/state_gop_in_hell_rai_er_s3Tr6zYycr hLWfvDQ8fGUJ#ixzz1cZ8msc1J (new window)

Either way, the article yesterday is currently about how Republicans are taking the pay hikes. Not so sure this is the conservative bias, hating on Rupert Murdoch thread you guys seem to want it to be.

I'm sorry if anyone was bothered by this.
 
2011-11-02 12:26:49 PM  
Well, it's The Post, so....

/Also wouldn't have been surprised if it was the Daily News

I'm surprised the correction didn't read....

Gov. Cuomo (D) gave raises to his staff(giggity) after he came into office.

CORRECTION: Gov. Cuomo (R) reduced his salary and the pay of his top aides by 5 percent.

No one ever gets these things ... See, I even used the one
with the apostrophe for the contraction to show a basic understanding
of spelling and grammar. God. I am a mediocrity medocrity.

I agree with the rotten, sleazy, fake corrupt government statement. I figure the first article was written by someone that got a hold of the correct set of books, and the second article was written from information from the cooked set of books. NYS is no different than Enron, to me, as far as sense of accountability goes.
 
Ehh

"due to an intentional editing error"

FTFY.
 
2011-11-02 03:19:34 PM  
People expect things in the New York Post to be true?
 
2011-11-02 03:27:13 PM  
Ok, I don't exactly know what an editor does, besides that they presumably edit. Is there some credible way for an editing error to cause this? IANAE, obviously... any in the house?

Classic misdirection. HEY ANDY!! Where's the $59 billion that went missing out of HUD during your tenure, eh? Huh? Huh? Can't hear you, MF'r ....

Don't fall for these stupid misdirection pieces, people. Go for the farking jugular. Where's the $59 Billion??

Ahh yes...

Andy Cuomo.. the guy who helped usher in the in the mortgage mess of 2008.

Andrew Cuomo and Fannie and Freddie

How the youngest Housing and Urban Development secretary in history gave birth to the mortgage crisis.

"Andrew Cuomo... made a series of decisions between 1997 and 2001 that gave birth to the country's current crisis.  He took actions that... helped plunge Fannie and Freddie into the subprime markets without putting in place the means to monitor their increasingly risky investments.  He turned the Federal Housing Administration... into a sweetheart lender with sky-high loan ceilings and no money down, and he legalized what a federal judge has branded 'kickbacks' to brokers that have fueled the sale of overpriced and unsupportable loans.  Three to four million families are now facing foreclosure, and Cuomo is one of the reasons why."



I doubt cutting a few government salaries will make up for all the people who lost their houses because of him..

Thanks Democrats!
