In honor of March Madness, Newsday’s editorial board invited readers to pick the editorials they loved to hate.
We selected 32 editorials from seven decades of archives. Some of the pressing issues of the day, such as racial covenants for houses in Levittown, were decided decades ago. Others, concerning deeply rooted Long Island institutions, such as the Long Island Power Authority and Nassau Interim Finance Authority, remain controversial today. In each pairing in the brackets, we asked readers to select the opinion that you feel best shows where the editorial board went off the rails. The editorial with the most votes moved to the next round.
