“We [the City] are held to a higher standard, they [the press] should hold themselves to a higher standard” too.


It’s rare for any city manager to do what Michael Bornstein did, calling a Post beat reporter “incompetent” and his article, “egregious” (watch video below). But that’s what happens when the City keeps being put on the ‘hot seat’ and have to defend itself but the people who cause the trouble in the first place skip away whistling, “What? I didn’t do anything!”.

Interestingly, the link to the article that Bornstein reacted to so strongly was later deleted. And also interesting, not long after this incident, the City hired a “Communications Specialist” to issue press releases to get the City’s information out to the public without having to rely solely on the press.

Last year Bornstein became “infinitely aggravated” and he let everyone know it:

“We [the City] are held to a higher standard, they [the press] should hold themselves to a higher standard” too.

And. . .

“I don’t normally do this. . .”:
