So, they're arguing lots of things that no one is arguing: 1) No one said the memo was the sole driver or the principal driver. They said it was a contributor and the data shows it might have increased the already high death toll by 1,000 people -- nypost.com/2021/02/18/cuo…
"There's a race for mayor in New York City and many people have been speaking to me about it," says Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as the clock moves from 'change-the-subject' o'clock to 'twist-the-knife-in-Bill-de-Blasio' o'clock
"NYCHA is an ongoing tragedy"
Also, remember that Gov. Cuomo promised NYCHA $550m, but:
- Barred $100m from going to structural uses
- Then took years to okay the allocation of the remaining $450m
Newspapers are good! No one screams at you. The important stuff goes in, the unimportant doesn't. They come in several sizes that allow you to choose from august layouts with passive-voiced headlines and more compact sizes with funny headlines!
SCOOP: The state's controversial March 25 order to nursing homes to accept hospital patients could have led to 1,000 additional deaths, a new analysis found -- nypost.com/2021/02/18/cuo…

Upstate nursing homes that accepted COVID patients transferred from hospitals saw 9.3 more deaths on average than nursing homes that didn't. There was no statistically significant difference downstate, the Empire Center data analysis found. -- nypost.com/2021/02/18/cuo…
$10 says Ch. 13 is gonna have a chopper over Intercontinental for Ted's return and he gets the car chase treatment as he drives into town.
(or that's what 13 would have done back in the old days, for sure)
It's hard to explain just how dominate KTRK is/was in Houston. Like, the ratings went up for the local news after Monday Night Football levels of dominate. The crazy consumer affairs reporter, Marvin Zindler (yes, that guy) turned 'Slime in the Ice Machine' into a city mantra
POST ANALYSIS: Cuomo's refusal to provide hospital death data meant that nursing home-linked COVID fatalities in NYC were under counted by 50-plus percent, an examination of new state data reveals -- nypost.com/2021/02/15/cuo…
- Nearly all of the 162 city nursing homes that reported COVID-19 deaths inside their walls — 152 — had residents die after being sent to hospitals for treatment.
- Hospital data caused COVID death toll at one facility to jump 1000%
This caught by eye. As Mayor de Blasio campaigned for president (remember?), his panel commissioned to rethink G&T recommended with doing away the whole shebang, further outraging a lot of the parent groups already outraged by proposals to scrap the SHSAT.
