JOHN McNESBY, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 5, leveled disturbing allegations yesterday against longtime Daily News reporters Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman. In an afternoon news conference held at the FOP's Northeast Philadelphia headquarters, McNesby said the union has been provided with "credible information" from a confidential source alleging that the two reporters fabricated information and provided interview subjects with cash and gifts, while reporting their Pulitzer Prize-winning series "Tainted Justice" in 2009.

JOURNALISM is an art. But it parades its words as a science at times. We in the news business take printed words and give them to what we hope is an eager public wanting facts. We try to do that in an interesting way without being sensationalistic. When the news is something completely new, like the recent SARS epidemic, we give as much information as possible and as many viewpoints. I learned this from Daily News editor Zack Stalberg and former editorial page editor Richard Aregood.

Staff writer Bob Warner and the Daily News should be ashamed of themselves for the article on June 21, about Joseph F. Hoffman Jr. Hoffman, who is a son of a Democratic ward leader, threw out "more than twice as many tickets as anybody else" in a six-year period. Does the Daily News commend Hoffman on his excessive productivity? No. Does the Daily News give credit to Hoffman for saving the city at least another person's salary and benefits costs for that six-year period?

Richard Aregood, whose take-no-prisoners editorials helped define the Daily News for two decades, is leaving the paper to take a job with The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J. Aregood's decision to leave the Daily News was prompted in part by disagreements with editor Zachary Stalberg over the mission of the editorial and opinion pages, as well as cutbacks in his department. During his years on the Daily News, Aregood won journalism's top awards for editorial writing, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1985.

The Daily News loves to fight for the little guy. Well, score one for the Daily News and two of its fearless reporters. Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism Monday for a series of stories that exposed a rogue police narcotics squad. Kudos, too, to Inquirer cartoonist Tony Auth, a Pulitzer finalist for his drawings "expressing consistently fearless positions on national and local issues. " The awards once again affirm the important role that vibrant newspapers play - even in tough times - not just here in the Cradle of Liberty, but across America.

Attorney and former mayoral candidate Charles W. Bowser has filed suit against the Daily News and Daily News associate editor Don Williamson, charging that he was the victim of false and defamatory statements in a column written by Williamson. In a suit filed in Common Pleas Court, Bowser accused Williamson of describing him as a black bigot and of making other disparaging remarks in a column about last summer's Urban Journalism Workshop for minority high school students, sponsored by the Daily News and the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund.

THE Daily News had the Phillies making the playoffs on the Monday before the season ended, and we know how that turned out. On Nov. 1, six days before the election, your headline said, "All over but the voting. " Headlines like these are more hurtful than helpful. Perhaps the third time you're inclined to predict the future, you'll bite your tongues and think how you might have blown it for us twice before. Stan Gibell Philadelphia

I remember when there were nine daily newspapers in New York City? Many Philadelphians have never forgotten the deceased Bulletin's slogan: In Philadelphia, Nearly Everybody Reads The Bulletin. Newspapers are dying. In this contemporary era, television has been the grotesque murderer of newspapers and magazines. Today, pay-for-TV-cable has been an ugly motive for not reading newspapers. Newspapers are in my blood. I read newspapers voraciously. In the past golden age of newspapers, it was cranky typewriters, inexpensive copy paper, rewritemen receiving stories from reporters over old-time telephones.

NOW THAT Philadelphia has already invested more than a half-BILLION dollars in stadia for "important" sports, the Daily News decides to take a position against the funding of a soccer-specific stadium in Chester? Why shouldn't soccer fans be able to watch their sport in an appropriate stadium? Is it that the money will be spent and earned outside the city? Or that your readers know nothing about the sport? Here's hoping the Legislature isn't listening. Peg Manning Eastsound, WA I don't think Barack Obama has much of a chance at winning the presidency because of his Muslim-sounding name.

BARBARA Richardson could easily have earned a doctorate in the history of the Catholic Church and Tudor England. And, oh yes, murder. She loved her Catholic religion and the history of England in the romantic days of kings and queens, the Tudors, the War of the Roses and the like. And she loved to read about murder - true crime murder. Never fiction. "She was an extreme Catholic, and a true Anglophile," said her daughter, Kimberly Richardson. "She knew all the stories of saints and miracles, and the scandals.

  The president of the Philadelphia lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police assailed the Philadelphia Daily News on Wednesday, saying there were credible allegations that two of the newspaper's reporters paid for utility bills, food, diapers, and other gifts to a woman whose story was told in their Pulitzer Prize-winning series on police misconduct. In an interview later in the day, Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey raised similar criticisms of the reporters, saying that if the allegations were true, the reporters crossed an ethical line.

A LOT of prisoners write to the Daily News . Most of them ask for help with their cases. An incompetent lawyer blew the trial, they say. A cop lied on the stand. New evidence proves their innocence. They were nowhere near the crime scene. I try to read every letter, mailing back the same response: I'm sorry for your troubles, but we haven't the resources to investigate your allegations. I wish you well. But Shuja Moore's plea was different. He didn't deny that on Oct. 17, 2004, he was a 22-year-old drug dealer who brought a loaded gun into Club Deco at Front and Spring Garden streets.

TALK ABOUT turning lemons into lemonade . . . or prudishness into pasties. The Philadelphia cop who irked police brass with her side gig as a phone-sex operator has launched another side business selling lingerie and blogging as "Cutie Off Duty. " This time, though, Officer Terra Barrow says, she got her bosses' permission. The Daily News exposed Barrow's phone-sex work in a February story. For years, Barrow ran websites and phone lines appealing to lusty callers with fetishes both tame and taboo, including fetishes that would be illegal if acted upon in real life, like pedophilia, rape, incest, kidnapping and murder.

A PHILADELPHIA cop who allegedly pushed her own children to fight other kids - and who, on at least one occasion, allegedly jumped in a fight to punch a 14-year-old girl - was arrested yesterday on numerous assault and child-endangerment charges, according to the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. Officer Tamika Gross' propensity for fighting has twice been detailed by the Daily News , once in 2009 when she got into a street fight with another woman while she was on duty and once in 2013, when she allegedly brought her 16-year-old suspended daughter back to Lincoln High School to fight a 14-year-old girl over a boy. In the latter instance, which prosecutors said was caught on cellphone video, Gross is accused of jumping into the fight when her daughter started losing and punching her daughter's rival in the eye - twice.

IMAGINE riding a roller coaster while blindfolded - chugging forward, picking up speed, not knowing what twists and turns await around the bend. That, in so many words, is what life has been like in recent years at the Daily News , the Inquirer and Philly.com. The media company has changed hands five times, survived bankruptcy and endured an ugly court battle pitting two factions of owners against one another. But now, the chaos is over, according to philanthropist H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, who yesterday officially became the sole owner of the city's two newspapers and their websites.
