There was a time, in 2001 when the Daily News and even the Post were taking shots at Bloomberg and would have easily sunk his candidacy by simply quoting his ugly words. Money must have change hands and the real Bloomberk became “Mike”. Seems like with Bush, once the lame duck term, some truth is allowed to peek out,

Mike Ihave my own army Bloomberg let this one out. I am sure “stop and frisk” will sound legit now, and its proponent Quinn is greatly helped by this

At least the free tabloids in NYC are in sync with the celebratory mood here.

Metro is trying to boost Quinn’s sagging numbers in the process (lots of politicians trying to get credit for this). NY Post ignores it and I’ll check the Daily News later

Didn’t fin the Daily News cover, but saw their hatchet job on Greenwald

They leave no stone unturned. How can anyone believe Greenwald now when

In a 2003 lawsuit, he and his then partner, Werner Achetz, were sued by their West Side condo board for having a dog that was bigger than building by-laws allowed.

The couple countered that they and their dog Uli were being singled out because they were gay, a charge the board denied. The case eventually settled.

Here’s Greenwald on the expected attacks

The personal side of taking on the NSA: emerging smears

Distractions about my past and personal life have emerged – an inevitable side effect for those who challenge the US government

Counting on American’s mistrust of the rest of the world, the media is fueling hysteria against Snowden to distract from his revelations.

The funniest thing about this headline is the fact that doubts are raised today if snowden was ever in Moscow. 

The karmic line from that article is

Many journalists did board the flight which is alcohol free and will last 12 hours. They will have to stay in Cuba for three days.

Please tell me that Dances-with Rove Gregory is there too!

Immersed as I was in the NSA horror, I thought for a second that – gasp – Bloomberg was doing something good for a change

I should have known better. He simply wants “his army” to break the Fourth Amendment (his stop and frisk) without federal supervision

It’s about his “stop and frisk” policy being challenged and the federal scrutiny it’s undergoing

“We have disciplined and well-trained police officers whose experience has been paid in blood.”

Maybe, But whose blood?

You would think that these NSA spying revelations would give right wing Post a platform to bash the administration – like many Republicans do. But nooo. Faced with a choice between authority/ the rights of the people Murdoch always makes the wrong choice, you can bank on it (to be fair, all media does it). So here is the Post bravely going after the whistleblower – right after some breasts, of course
