This investigation of Newsday, Long Island's only daily newspaper, was prompted by a lawsuit filed against the paper by its advertisers. The suit alleged that Newsday was guilty of mass circulation fraud and shortchanging advertisers. The Long Island Press launched its own investigation and found problems that went beyond the lawsuit's allegations, including mass dumping of undelivered papers into local wetland preserves and recycling centers. Reporters also learned of other instances in which Newsday inflated actual circulation and subscriber/distribution fraud.
