Did a newspaper actually say that? If so, in what context?

Major newspapers I've seen, including the NYT, do that pretty well.
However, they're still losing readership.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: With a bit of luck, local news from New
York City gets covered in NY Times ... maybe. They do not do a very
good job of covering local, NYC news, but they are not bad -- if a
little bit of liberal bias is okay -- on national and international
news. PAT]
