POLITICO New York Playbook: WSJ cuts local coverage -- DENTON settles Gawker suit -- What if Democrats take the State Senate?

11/03/2016 07:30 AM EDT

By Jimmy Vielkind in Albany and Azi Paybarah in Manhattan, with Addy Baird and Daniel Lippman

GREATER NEW YORK HIT - POLITICO Media's Kelsey Sutton: The Wall Street Journal will debut an overhauled and slimmed-down version of its print product on Nov. 14 in an effort to make the paper more financially viable "for the foreseeable future," Journal editor Gerard Baker announced in an internal memo to staff Wednesday. The changes, which mostly consist of consolidations and combinations of sections, will come with staff cuts, Baker warned. One section to be hit hard is the newspaper's Greater New York coverage, which will be consolidated to a "more concise, focused daily report on life and business," Baker said.To give a sense of what the section consolidations could mean in terms of staff reductions, consider that Greater New York currently has a team of roughly three dozen, including reporters, editors and production people. The staff was informed in a meeting Wednesday afternoon that since Greater New York will be moving to two pages in the main section of the paper, the number of positions will be trimmed to 16, including 12 reporters, and that everyone will have to reapply to secure one of those jobs.

DEATH AFTER POLICE HIT MAN WITH STUN GUN, TWICE -- Daily News' Rocco Parascandola and Thomas Tracy and John Annese: "An emotionally disturbed 49-year-old man brandishing a bottle died Wednesday after a police sergeant used a stun gun to subdue him during a confrontation in the Bronx, police sources said. Officers with the NYPD's 45th Precinct responded to a home on Mayflower Ave. by St. Theresa Ave. in Pelham Bay Park at about 5:30 p.m., after a neighbor reported the man was armed with a knife, police said. The neighbor pointed the man out to cops, and he confronted the officers with a glass bottle. A patrol sergeant used a Taser on the man, and he fell to the ground, only to revive moments later, police said. The man fought with the officers, and the sergeant delivered a second stun, police said. The man went into cardiac arrest, and emergency personnel treated him on the scene, then took him to Einstein Hospital, where he died, cops said."

-- Context: As of June, the NYPD has 1,700 Taser guns and 8,889 NYPD officials have been trained to use them, according to an NYPD spokesperson. Taser use has been on the rise in the department since 2010. In 2010, Tasers were used 163 times; in 2011, they were used 178 times. In 2012 and 2013, that figure went up to 220 and 273, respectively. POLITICO New York's Azi Paybarah:

-- Related: NYT editorial hits de Blasio on police transparency: De Blasio has "more latitude in interpreting" a state law he says bars him from disclosing information about police disciplinary records, the editorial said. And de Blasio's reasoning for appealing a judge's decision ordering him to release informatino from the Civilian Complaint Review Board "is difficult to accept since the review board's decisions are hardly a secret."

COUNCIL MOVES TO LIMIT POLITICAL NONPROFITS -- POLITICO New York's Gloria Pazmino: Following months of conversations among members of the City Council, Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said the chamber is moving to introduce a package of bills aimed at curbing and regulating the donations nonprofit political organizations are allowed to receive. The Council's legislative proposals, which have yet to be finalized but will include a number of different bills, come months after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he was disbanding his political nonprofit, the Campaign for One New York. That group is the subject of both federal and local law enforcement investigations looking into the possibility that donors to the organization may have received favorable action from City Hall. "It's going to be a package of bills that includes limiting these advocacy organizations and the monies that they can receive. This is a conversation that has been in the works for a while and we have been taking our time to really look at what can we do and the role that we play in this," Mark-Viverito told POLITICO New York in an interview on Wednesday."

CUOMO'S SIGNAGE PROBLEMS - Gannett's Jon Campbell: "Cuomo's administration dotted New York with 514 highway signs touting its tourism programs despite a federal ruling explicitly prohibiting the state from doing so. Documents obtained by the USA Today Network's Albany Bureau show the Federal Highway Administration has repeatedly notified Cuomo's administration over the past three years that the signs violate federal and state law, which contain strict rules for what can and cannot be displayed on major roadways. But the state Department of Transportation and Thruway Authority appear to have ignored the warnings, rapidly expanding the signage across the state while federal officials continued to voice concerns."


-- TOUGH DAY FOR WSJ: The newspaper's anticipated downsizing, which officially kicked off yesterday, so far appears to be having the greatest impact on Greater New York, the Journal's nearly seven-year-old metro section, which will be folded into a two-page spread in the A-section starting November 14. The existing team of roughly three dozen, per one insider's estimate, will be pared down to 16 -- that's 12 reporters and four editors, which sounds like bad news for production types. The whole crew was officially laid off and now has to reapply to secure one of the new slots, a move that a union representing Journal employees says it may challenge.

-- NICK DENTON'S 'HARD PEACE' : "After four years of litigation funded by a billionaire with a grudge going back even further, a settlement has been reached. The saga is over," the former Gawker Media boss wrote yesterday about a $31 million settlement reached with Hulk Hogan. "As the most unpalatable part of the deal, three true stories ... are being removed from the web. Yes, we were confident the appeals court would reduce or eliminate the runaway Florida judgment against Gawker, the writer of the Hogan story and myself personally. And we expected to prevail in those other two lawsuits by clients of Charles Harder, the lawyer backed by Thiel. But all-out legal war with Thiel would have cost too much, and hurt too many people, and there was no end in sight."

-- Gawker editor Tom Scocca: "So @nicknotned, is there a settlement where everyone who spent years of their lives fighting the fight you quit can get their lives back?"

-- LATEST FROM LACHLAN AND JAMES MURDOCH : No mention of Megyn Kelly on yesterday's 21 Century Fox earnings call from the two brothers, who are said to be on an aggressive persuasion campaign to keep the star anchor at Fox News. They did however talk up the profit-making network that their father, Rupert, is now running in the wake of Roger Ailes' scandalous departure. "Fox News has never been stronger amidst an intense election season," said Lachlan. "It just marked its 59th consecutive quarter as the number one in cable news, and just finished October as the number one network in both primetime and all-day, across all of cable. Last month also marked the first time a Fox News anchor moderated a general election presidential debate. We have to give a shout-out to Chris Wallace's superb debate performance, which notably received kudos on both side of the aisle."

WHAT IF DEMOCRATS TAKE THE STATE SENATE? - Buffalo News' Tom Precious: Mailboxes are filling with campaign literature from Republicans with dire predictions if Democrats take over. Democrats, in turn, note that upstate has not fared well during the 80 years of Senate domination by the GOP. Here's what it means by the map if upstate contests shape up on Election Day as many expect: Sen. Tim Kennedy, a Buffalo Democrat, would have to ride nearly 300 miles east before he would hit the district of a colleague among mainline Democratic senators. And that scarcity of upstate Democrats would have consequences when it came time to divvy up state aid, according to Greg Biryla, executive director of Unshackle Upstate, which has been sounding the alarms over taxing and spending issues if the Senate majority flips."

APP FOR PARK CRIMES -- Daily News' Lisa Colangelo: "The free ParentPatrol app - launched this week by state Assemblyman Ron Kim - gives parents and caregivers a quick way to report drunks, drug users and unsavory adults hanging around parks and playgrounds to the city Police Department, Parks Department and local elected officials. Users can take videos or send a message to report potentially dangerous conditions in the city's busy green spaces. Kim (D-Queens), a father of two young girls, said he worked with a software developer to create the app after two frightening incidents took place at Bowne Playground in July. A 12-year-old girl was sexually abused and robbed at the Flushing park in the early morning. In an unrelated case at the same spot, a man went up to an 8-year-old boy, picked him up and squeezed his chest."

ANTHONY WEINER IN REHAB -- Daily Mail's Ben Ashford and Martin Gould: "Anthony Weiner, the husband of Hillary Clinton's closest aide Huma Abedin, has checked into a rehab facility for treatment of sex addiction."


ON STAGE -- "Accord Reached in Battle Over 'The Great Comet,'" by NYT's Michael Paulson: "An uneasy peace has broken out on West 45th Street. The unusually ugly who-gets-how-much-credit-for-a-big-Broadway-musical battle was officially resolved on Wednesday, when the commercial producers of 'Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812' agreed to revise the show's Playbill to give more specific credit to Ars Nova, the nonprofit theater that commissioned the show. In a joint statement, the parties said 'Ars Nova and the producers of 'The Great Comet' deeply regret that a contractual dispute became public, and are pleased to share that the matter has now been resolved, privately, and will continue to work to achieve success for 'The Great Comet' on Broadway.' The commercial producers and the nonprofit theater agreed to make no further comment to the news media. But it appears that hard feelings remain. Howard Kagan, one of the show's lead producers, on Tuesday morning sent a 2,659-word statement to the show's investors defending the decisions about billing, saying he believed his initial agreement with Ars Nova had lapsed, that 'we do not believe Ars Nova deserves all the credit for this Broadway production" and accusing Ars Nova of "a vicious and misleading email and social media campaign online and in the press.' Ars Nova has made similar allegations about Mr. Kagan. In a legal complaint last week, the nonprofit said that Mr. Kagan had threatened to 'initiate a smear campaign in the press in order to irreparably harm Ars Nova's reputation,' and had then followed through on that threat. The dispute has been going on for about three weeks, and revolves around how Ars Nova is described on the title page of the Playbill."

EAT BEAT -- "Momofuku's Ando raises $7 million in Series A funding," by Mashable's Emma Hinchliffe: "Momofuku's app, Ando, already has a celebrity chef. Now it has celebrity investors. Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon are two of the angel investors behind Momofuku restaurateur David Chang's investment round for the tech project. Ando is a delivery-only service available in select New York neighborhoods.The food is made in an undisclosed location, and the recipes are designed specifically for delivery. New York customers within the Midtown East delivery zone can order cheesesteak, fried chicken and other lunch or dinner options through the mobile app or online. The company this week raised $7 million in a Series A round led by Forerunner. ... Ando works with Uber to coordinate its deliveries. Co-founder Hooman Radfar comes from a tech background. The project attracted the attention of interesting investors. BoxGroup and Wildcat Venture Partners participated along with Forerunner. Other angel investors included the chairman of Estée Lauder, a co-founder of Warby Parker, the founder of SoulCycle, and, of course, Ansari and Fallon."

AT THE GALLERY -- "Painting of 'Devil' Donald Trump Getting Puked on Lands at Midtown Gallery," by DNA Info's Maya Rajamani: "A massive painting set to be unveiled at a Midtown gallery Wednesday night that was inspired by the famous 'Garden of Earthly Delights' aims to capture 'the entire Donald Trump fiasco' in a single piece, the artist said. The 9-by-5-foot 'Fín del Mundo' depicts the Republican presidential nominee in the midst of an apocalyptic scene, clad in an elongated tie and carrying a pitchfork, with a figure appearing to vomit on him from above. The mural will be on view at the Central Park Fine Arts gallery at 211 W. 57th St., between Broadway and Seventh Avenue, until the day after the election. 'The project caught my fancy mainly because of the political situation, and I was able to incorporate the entire Donald Trump fiasco in this one mural,' artist Robert Cenedella explained in a video about the piece. He chose the Spanish title 'because of the insults Donald Trump has made against Spanish-speaking people around the world, and in particular... Mexicans,' he said. Despite the title, Cenedella hopes those who view the painting see it 'in a positive light,' he added. 'I would not have worked for almost two years on a painting I didn't see a future for,' he said."

REAL ESTATE, with POLITICO New York's Sally Goldenberg:

-"State funding council asks to run buses to Brooklyn Navy Yard," by POLITICO New York's Jimmy Vielkind: "You might not have to wait for the proposed Brooklyn-Queens waterfront streetcar for easier access to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Officials with the nonprofit corporation that oversees the former military base are asking for $3.7 million in state funding to buy nine buses which they plan to run from the Atlantic Avenue terminal and Cadman Plaza to the sprawling yard, which is wedged between the IND and BMT lines. 'The Navy Yard has proven itself to be a significant economic generator for New York City. It's positioned to attract advanced manufacturing, start-up manufacturing, high-tech,' said Winston Fisher, a real estate developer who co-chairs the New York City Regional Economic Development Council. 'But it also faces significant transportation crunches. If you look at the subway system, it's just sandwiched between the two lines and it's a far distance. For all New York, we need a better transportation solution.'"

-"City Allowed Open Pipe to Flood Historic Greenpoint Hospital for 2 Years," by DNAinfo's John Bolger: "The city allowed gushing water from an open pipe to flood the basement of a building at the Greenpoint Hospital - a candidate for the National Register of Historic Places - for two years before capping it. The leak occurred in the former nurses' dormitory of the partially dormant 5-acre hospital campus, which neighbors have been pushing to get redeveloped for the past 30 years. And the open pipe was further proof that the city is in no hurry to restore the property, they say. 'They want a reason to tear down the nurses' residence so they just let it get destroyed,' Jan son, 75, a founding member of the Greenpoint Renaissance Enterprise Corporation, said of the leak. 'Why should the city even be allowed to manage it?' son and the GREC have crusaded against the city since the 1980s to redevelop the former Greenpoint Hospital site for community use. The city said that they were unaware of the leak until DNAinfo New York brought it to their attention, and denied that any damage occurred because of it."

-"Chinese developer formerly known as Cheerland abandons $300M Flatiron condo conversion," by The Real Deal's Will Parker: "Chinese developer CL Investment Group pulled the plug last month on a $300.2 million luxury condo conversion of the United Charities office building at 287 Park Avenue South in the Flatiron District, records show. The company will instead keep the building commercial and will announce a renovation and repositioning plan in the the near future, a spokesperson for CL Investment told The Real Deal. The now-dropped 40-unit condominium offering plan, first filed with the New York state Attorney General's office more than a year ago, called for luxury residential apartments averaging somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 million apiece. A penthouse was expected to list for a whopping $17.5 million, a sum topped by only three apartments currently listed in the Flatiron neighborhood, according to StreetEasy."
