So, just how bad is News12?

This just in from a friend of OtBB:

"Apparently News 12 thinks the Southampton Town Board just passed a noise ordinance for Southold."

The provided link led to:

Southampton Town Board approves noise ordinance

...while the lead read:

"(07/19/11) southold - The Southampton Town Board voted unanimously today in favor of a noise ordinance."

Okay, so it's a stoopid mistake!

But it fully supports my long-held contention that the Dolan-owned, which also owns Newsday, is clueless about anything East of Brookhaven Town!

Probably by the time you read this, it will have been corrected, but I can hear someone in the Woodbury office saying something like:

"Southampton... Southold... what's the difference?!?"

Thanks, Ray!


Someone in Woodbury wised up to the gaffe and around 7:42 pm corrected it.

They also scrubbed the Comments making fun of the flub... do we need to mention News12's credibility problems?

News12 and Newsday, both owned by Dolan, are a joke.

You're too generous with your praise.
