The article presents observations about how the newspapers reported about the strike of the personnel of the Long Island Rail Road. The reports try to make it appear that it was the union which had rejected a last offer even after the intervention of Governor Rockefeller. Both reports in the "New York Tribune" and "The New York Times" omit certain facts including the fact that the offer would result in a reduction of wages.
