The Knight News, its logo, Queens College’s Official Award-Winning Student Newspaper Since 1937, published this excellent article by reporter Jano Tantongco pointing out blistering reporting inaccuracies by New York Newsday, New York Post and New York Daily News on the arrest of Stephen Buttafuoco, a Queens College, CUNY, senior.

Buttafuoco was arrested on a felony aggravated harassment hate crime charge because, according to news accounts, he played Arabic chants over the public announcement system at a Jewish center in Woodbury, Queens. “In an interview (with Tantongco), Buttafuoco argued that the incident was a misunderstanding,” according to the published Knight News story.
