Capital New York, a news website that's focused mostly on New York City politics and culture, was recently acquired by Robert Albritton, the owner of DC political news factory Politico. The plan is apparently to turn Capital New York into a sort of Politico for New York State. Last week, one of Politico's co-founders said Capital New York planned to hire six new reporters for its Albany bureau. (So... who gets poached next?) [Capital New York] [NYT] [Bloomberg]
