UPDATE: "The NYPD did not disclose the url"

IMCista | Last week, we ran several pieces on the pre-RNC fear-mongering of the NY Daily News. With no evidence other than police sources and an alleged internet posting whose url they did not reveal, the Daily News ran a front-page story alleging that protesters were planning to fool bomb-sniffing dogs in Penn Station into sounding an alarm during the RNC.

Bush Bad for Chelsea Business

Steven Wishnia | One block away from Madison Square Garden, 30th St. Guitars is a musician’s cornucopia. One wall is completely covered with vintage electric guitars, four long rows of black Telecasters and cherry-sunburst Les Pauls. The upstairs room is devoted to basses and acoustic guitars, and a side area displays exotica like electric sitars. Only store worker Ned Brewster isn’t looking forward to next month, when much of the neighborhood will be closed down for the Republican convention. more...  1 Comments
