Took a Hackensack cruise through eBay and found these images. The Oritani one doesn't look familiar and I don't think I've ever seen the old bus terminal mistaken for an airline terminal before.

And - right on cue - today's Hackensack Chronicle (pg. 2, third and fourth words of the caption) reminds us what this thread's all about (you mean she's NOT the crane?):

From: https://eyeontherecord.blogspot.com/2020/07/from-great-local-journalism-to-hawking.html

Think of it:

Tenants of the luxury apartments will be moving their bowels on the site of a great local daily newspaper Stephen A. Borg turned to trash.




Here's what I'm thinking: Hundreds of Record employees - including YOU - must have also moved their bowels there in the many decades that The Record and its bathrooms were on the River St site.

What's the difference? It's the same ol' sh*t, isn't it?


And what does any of this - and the post that precedes it - have to do with a thread about the poor quality of the writing in the newspaper?

Posts should only be in one relevant thread.

Try to keep that in mind.

THE RECORD, (201) MAGAZINE AND OTHER GANNETT PUBLICATIONS ARE NOW OWNED BY A JAPANESE CONGLOMERATE

On July 16, 2020, a New York Times story reported that hedge funds and private equity firms have become the owners of newspapers in Canada and the United States.

"The private equity fund Fortress Investment Group controls the largest American newspaper chain, Gannett, which published USA Today, The Arizona Republic and 250 other dailies, [including The Record of Woodland Park]," Times reporter Edmund Lee says. "Fortress is owned by the Japanese conglomerate SoftBank."

Here is a profile of SoftBank from Google:

SoftBank Group Corp. is a Japanese multinational conglomerate holding company headquartered in Tokyo. SoftBank owns stakes in many technology, energy, and financial companies. It also runs Vision Fund, the world's largest technology-focused venture capital fund, with over $100 billion in capital. Wikipedia
