De Blasio lets security haul away Post reporter for asking question
NY Post ^ | August 12, 2018 | Kevin Sheehan and Bruce Golding

Posted on 08/12/2018 7:43:55 PM PDT by EinNYC

Mayor de Blasio is a such a big believer in the free press that he let two bodyguards physically remove a credentialed Post reporter who had the temerity to ask him a question in public on Sunday.

The unusual muzzling unfolded at the start of the annual Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, where the reporter sought de Blasio’s reaction to The Post’s front page story about his administration’s many meetings with lobbyists.

Just another glaring example of the patent corruption of this sorry sack of excrement. The stench of his numerous misdeeds must reach all the way to the West Coast.

How dare that reporter ask a question of the leader of the vanguard of the proletariat!

And the Post will meekly play it down.

Actually, it's the people in the Midwest that have it the worst. They get De-Commie-o's stench emanating from New York mingling with the stench from Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown and his soon-to-be successor Gavin "Moonbat" Newsome emanating from Sacramento.

“The stench of his numerous misdeeds must reach all the way to the West Coast.”

Can imagine how awful the stench of De Blasio, but here on the West Coast the stench is of forest, and brush fires. Fortunately for us the “Holy Fire” immediately to the SW of us the ash, and smoke blow over to the West of us. We are breathing OK, but the smell like I said is of burning brush.

Perhaps we are fortunate.

Oh no. It was the Dominican parade and I missed it. The watchers at this parade are as enthusiastic as the marchers. Not to be missed, tourists, if you’re here next year.

Was this guy ranting like a lunatic, or was he just asking a question? There is a difference.

He should be charged, along with his thugs.

Acosta rants like a lunatic. So Trump is covered if he wants to eject him like a ripe lugy.

They can demand that Acosta surrender his credential for disturbing the peace, and ask him to leave the room.

They should not lay a finger on him.

If he fails to leave, then he can be arrested.

So the Mayor of Blasio hates the “media” too? Somebody call April and Jimmie and get them over there to beat up on da Mayor for a while.

12 Aug: Real Clear Politics: NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio: CNN Has No “Hourly Political Bias,” Rupert Murdoch/FOX News Dividing America By Race
By Tim Hains
Appearing on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” with Brian Stelter NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio says “CNN and the major networks do not harbor a daily, hourly political agenda” and Fox News and the NY Post, both owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, “created a dynamic... where race was infused into the dialogue in a very negative way.”...

“There is no Donald Trump without News Corp. I firmly believe that. He never gets to the presidency, because he would never have been elevated the way he was consistently for years and years,” he also said...
“CNN on a regular basis provides both sides of the story”...
“If one agrees and look at the facts over decades, does News Corp have a clear right wing agenda? I think that one is pretty obvious.
“Do they sensationalize, racialize and divide? Yes. Does that compare to CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, ‘The New York Times’, ‘The Washington Post’? No.”...

bury the FakeNewsMSM.
