Coincidentally, we had also received this note from a splendid reader:
Just a thought: Fox25 used to partner often for debates with the Herald. Not last night. The Herald used to partner with Suffolk to run [David] Paleologos polling. That’s gone.

On a sad side note, this went out on the Twitters yesterday afternoon.
No reporters affected, but bad news regardless.
