About Us
Once a weapon wielded by a unscrupulous pamphleteer, PoliticsNY.net has been a colorful part of New York's political news landscape for over a decade. At times insightful, then insulting, then outrageous, then insightful again, the publication kept political insiders - and those curious about those insiders - reading every day. In its heyday, thousands of New Yorkers were visiting the Web site every day for a view of politics from a Western New York perspective.

Purchased by new management in 2012, PoliticsNY relaunched with a brand new Web site in January 2013. The new writers and other political observers running the site are committed to keeping the news portal interesting - alive with breaking news stories from major media organizations blended with commentary outside the mainstream.

PoliticsNY.net writers will analyze political events and bring you news you won't find anywhere else. Guest columns from public officials will update readers on current events. And, to keep the tabloid pulse longtime readers have come to enjoy, a new column of crowd-sourced gossip oozing from the halls of government: "Rumor & Innuendo." Don't believe a word of it.
