The Journal News was created through a merger of several daily community newspapers serving the three counties. Although the current newspaper's name comes from Rockland Journal-News, which was based in West Nyack, N.Y., and served Rockland County, the Rockland Journal-News was actually the third-largest newspaper that Gannett merged to create the larger newspaper. The Reporter Dispatch from White Plains, N.Y., and the Herald Statesman in Yonkers, N.Y. were larger and served Westchester County. For years prior to the October 12, 1998, merger that created The Journal News, the 10 newspapers shared substantial content and printing presses. Gannett acquired nine of the newspapers in 1964 from the Macy family and added The Star in Peekskill, N.Y., in 1985. The phrase mergers and acquisitions or M&A refers to the aspect of corporate finance strategy and management dealing with the merging and acquiring of different companies as well as assets. ...

New Journalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (574 words)
New Journalism was the name given to a style of news writing and journalism.
It was codified with its current meaning by Tom Wolfe in 1973 when he published "The New Journalism." Wolfe unwittingly published his first New Journalism style article in 1963; having trouble writing an assignment, he sent his editor an unstructured narrative letter rather than the tight piece usually expected of a journalist of that time.
Articles in the New Journalism style tended not to be found in newspapers, but rather in magazines such as The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Esquire Magazine, CoEvolution Quarterly and for a short while Scanlan's Monthly.
New Games Journalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (340 words)
New Games Journalism is a video game journalism movement started by journalist Kieron Gillen in which personal anecdotes, references to other media, and creative analysis are used to explore game design, play, and culture.
They should instead be understood as being analogous to travel journalism, where the writer responds to subjective experiences presented to them by the game world, as well as interactions with other players online, real-world events surrounding gameplay, and other personal experiences and anecdotes which create a unique story.
New Games Journalism's critics claim that it is extremely pretentious whilst telling potential buyers almost nothing useful about the game in question (most critics consider NGJ pieces reviews despite the authors' claims to the contrary).
