James Carver, President of the Nassau PBA has been in contact with Newsday's Editorial Director and has had multiple conversations regarding the insensitive posting of links that were attached to an online article dated October 2, 2014.

In the middle of the article, the subject of which was the dedication of our new police memorial, it posted links to police salaries, pensions, political contributions, and lastly, an interactive link to police corruption. These links are disgraceful!

The PBA has complained numerous times to Newsday about their policy of posting these types of links to unrelated stories, which have included articles related to the Police Officer Arthur Lopez murder trial.

During discussions, Newsday has stated they will implement measures to ensure that links that are included in an online article, will actually pertain tot he article's subject. 
 
NEWSDAY APOLOGY
 
Dear James,
 
We sincerely apologize for the linking issues we have had on some of the stories we have published online.  We are working as quickly as possible to change the technology that manages these links.  It's important for us to get this right and we very much appreciate you bringing it to our attention.  We are truly sorry.
