The printing plants of several newspapers in New York City were raided today as part of a corruption probe into union/Mob ties.

It will be interesting to see how vigorously the newspapers cover the story, no?

AP:

A law enforcement official says the New York Police Department raided circulation offices at some of the nation’s largest newspapers as part of a union corruption probe.

The official says the offices of The New York Times, the New York Post, El Diario and the Daily News of New York were raided Tuesday. The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.

The official says the newspaper delivery system around the city is under investigation. It was unclear whether the news operations were involved, although the official initially said they were not.

The 1,600-member union that delivers papers was previously accused by the Manhattan district attorney’s office of being run by the mob.

NYTimes’ blog:

The New York City police raided the offices of three major city dailies and El Diario on Tuesday morning as part of an investigation into allegations of corruption within the union that delivers newspapers in the metropolitan area.

A warrant was served at the printing plant of The New York Times in College Point, Queens, by New York City police officers working in conjunction with the office of the Manhattan district attorney, Robert M. Morgenthau, as investigators sought paperwork related to the work of the Newspaper and Mail Deliverers Union, which bundles and trucks newspapers across the region.

The offices of The New York Daily News on West 33rd Street, The New York Post on Avenue of the Americas and the offices of El Diario, a Spanish-language newspaper, in the MetroTech center in Brooklyn, were also searched, according to a law enforcement official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

No one was arrested, and the search warrants issued sought to collect records.
