It seems to me that the New York police turning their back on the New York mayor would be important to a New York newspaper, but, in this case, it wasn’t. It reminds me of something a friend told me years ago, The only things that are on the web are things that somebody wants you to know. The same is true of newspapers, maybe they couch it in a way that sounds different, but in the end, they publish what they want you to know.
