« Shanty Town Erupts on 23rd St. | Main | Sprout »

Maybe Larry's willingness to tell the truth about the "victims of the realestate boom" is the reason he was ousted. Our unsympathetic politicians and corrupt government agencies don't want to deal with newspaper editors that have the balls to print the truth. The media has been very silent about the many crimes committed by the gangster landlords against NYC tenants. I should say that the media has been silenced.

The ouster of Larry Lerner from "Chelsea Now" is a blow to the Chelsea community, especially activists. As a founding member of Chelsea Neighbors United to End the War, AskNadler2Impeach.org and a member of the executive board of the NY Metro Area Postal Union I have spoken with Mr. Lerner on issues of import to each group. Not only does Mr. Lerney listen to what you have to say, but he gets it.

Larry Lerner has the jouralism gene in abundance. When you are speaking with him you are speaking with a newspaper guy. He will be missed.

Hopefully, he will land somewhere else, where his talent, work ethic and journalism sense will be appreciated.

Better than that, maybe "Chelsea Now" will address the errors of their ways and bring Larry Lerner back!


Chelsea Now spelled "Marriott" wrong in a headline on the front page a few months ago. So I would have to conclude that his abilities as an editor are mixed.


Alan, what that means is that Community Media has skimped on copy editors.
