The Point


The Point is Newsday editorial board’s daily newsletter taking you behind closed doors into the New York political scene. It is a must-read for those who want exclusive insights into local, city and state politics and policy.

Features include:

  • The Daily Point: Analysis, discussion and opinion on today’s top issues
  • Talking Point: What “got us talking” today, as well as the spin and who’s spinning.
  • Pencil Point: Editorial cartoonists satirize newsmakers of the week
  • Pointed: A roundup of the day’s best commentary in the state — who’s saying what about whom and what it means.

I helped to manage the launch of the newsletter and am part of the team that develops the daily content.
