Caputo, Herr to Helm PoliticsNY.net

13 Dec

 

As reported moments ago by Bob McCarthy, the former Joe Illuzzi site (politicsny.net) will relaunch in January 2013, and will be written by Southtowns-based Republican strategist Michael Caputo and moderate Democratic teacher and blogger, Pete Herr. It will be a departure from the previous owner’s muckraking and paid character assassination and will combine a mix of reporting and commentary from across the political spectrum. Congratulations to them in their new venture.

The Changing Face of Politicsny.net

The original is here. The new image is here. The site’s teaser image was criticized for its lack of diversity. I also see that Ralph Lorigo and his hair have made the cut. Kudos.  No word yet on who’s behind it. 

Illuzzi’s Former Site

28 Nov

After gossipy muckraking political payola specialist died a few months ago, his website URL went up for sale. PoliticsNY.net was on the market for $3,000, according to the Massachusetts-based URL resale company I spoke with. Someone snapped it up, and a relaunch is apparently in the works for the very near future. 

No word yet on who bought it, but the site now features this image: 

Anyone notice what’s missing in that picture?
