Page 1: The suggestion that The Brooklyn Paper has participated in any collusion or was aware of any collusion to hurt this borough — which The Paper has served with honor for nearly 40 years — or to undermine the integrity of the news-producing and disseminating process, is an appalling and detestable lie.
