Ground Zero Spirit

In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, a photographer for The Record, Thomas E. Franklin, took a photograph of three firefighters raising an American flag over the rubble of what had been the World Trade Center. This became an iconic photo known as Ground Zero Spirit.[citation needed] The photo accompanied an article written by Jeannine Clegg, a reporter for The Record. The Record owns the rights to the photograph but has licensed it in exchange for donations to September 11 causes, as long as the photo is used in a "dignified and proper manner" for non-commercial purposes.[4]

James McGreevey scandal

According to Governor James E. McGreevey in his book The Confession (ISBN 0-06-089862-3) published in 2006, The Record was the first newspaper to break the news of a relationship between McGreevey and Golan Cipel that was to lead to McGreevey's resignation. McGreevey brought up Cipel's name six weeks into his administration in a February 14, 2002 interview with The Record editorial board at its offices, saying, "We will not skimp on security. We actually brought on a security advisor from the Israel Defense Forces, probably the best in the world."

The interview prompted news investigation into Cipel's background and on February 21, The Record published a profile of Golan calling him a "sailor" and a "poet." The article said, "Democrats close to the administration say McGreevey and Cipel have struck up a close friendship and frequently travel together."

The article prompted McGreevey's own mother to ask him if he was gay and stirred various media organizations to send reporters to Israel to ask questions about Cipel and his background and childhood friends.
