Rupert Murdoch bought The Brooklyn Paper in March, and its stories appear on the Post web site. But, as of this Friday, the two papers’ print editions will also be a package deal: Post subscribers in “selected areas of Brooklyn” will receive The Paper as well.
From the announcement that appeared in The Brooklyn Paper today:
“This is what we call a classic win-win,” said Celia Weintrob, publisher of The Brooklyn Paper. “Post readers already enjoy the best newspaper in the city – but now they’ll be getting the best local paper in Brooklyn, too.”
Back in March, John Koblin asked then-owner Ed Weintrob whether News Corp. ownership “represented a threat to the paper’s longtime tradition of independence.”
“Um, not really,” he replied.
