NYT Vs Paterson

NYT Needs Regime Change
No More Ivy League Clueless Reporters

Friday NYT Focus in On the Gov

Absent at critical times and not often in his office

The NYT is aware of the very negative reaction it has gotten from both the public and other journalists for the story about David Johnson, today public what many believe was the real direction of their investigation Paterson's personal habits. The NYT said Paterson has become increasing isolation but does not explain how the budget crisis and dysfunctional legislature contributed to it. As Campaign Nears, Paterson Is Seen as Increasingly Remote

With all the corruption in New York how could the NYT publish such a dumb article Wednesday? What more can I say. There is no there there at the Times anymore. The paper needs a new management team if it is going to continue

The NYT Vs. Paterson: It's Personal: Sex Media and Politics Metastasize

The NYT Vs. Paterson: It's Personal
Sex Media and Politics Metastasize

The story that was leaked by Times reporters at a party and went viral on the Internet over the weekend. The governor will resign was the story. The story is now become the story. With the NYT at its center with it reputation on the line. NYP Dicker today "By sitting on their supposed blockbuster of a story for nearly two weeks, the Times' scribes have created a paralytic frenzy in state government the likes of which have never been seen before."

Paterson team is attacking the NYT in the press and on the Internet at the same time they are meeting with them to offer their side of the story. "There is an accountability that should exist in the media. How do I get my reputation back? Because I don't believe I have done anything to deserve this kind of bashing," embattled Gov. David Paterson told the AP, condemning "callous and sleazy" assaults on his character.

The NYP headlines has the gov saying "I did not have sex with that woman." Angry gov blasts raunchy rumors *Furious gov: I've been sexploited The governor hopes the NYT get burned with this story the same way they did when they publishish what has become know as the sex story about John McCain just when his campaign for president was taking off in 2008. Consultants working on the Paterson reelection effort like Harold Ickes and Bill Lynch know how to push back against the media and they are doing so right now. The NYT who thinks they are above everyone, ride into town and fix the problem, has been sucked into the muck that has made New York the horror it has become. It is there fault for staying out of this show from hell for so long. It has now gotten to the point where we need a President Lincoln to send in the troops to put down the news gangs of New York. It is so out of control and the pol gangs have become so cleaver, the public so clueless and the media so weak that we have entered New York perfect storm, a civil war between former partner the media and the pols. New York is burning like Atlanta with unemployed, closed businesses and and sense of failure and believe anything.

Dicker in the NYP The wildest thing about the wild rumors sur rounding Gov. Paterson's supposedly imminent resignation is that everybody in the state Capitol -- indeed everybody in the state political community -- is ready to believe anything about the governor, no matter how bad it is. . . Have you heard about the governor regularly "double dating" with a beautiful younger woman other than his wife or about the real reason he was late on the scene at the tragic Buffalo commuter-plane crash or maybe the one about the wild sex and drug parties at the Executive Mansion?
