Let’s Get Real

September 13, 2010

“Did you hear?” 

“What?” 

“Cuomo reversed himself on the Working Families Party line. Now he’s accepting it.” 

“Wow. What a flip-flop. He’s gonna get killed by the Post.” 

“No, the Post is ignoring it completely.” 

“Huh?” 

“The Post and all the other reporters bought the Cuomo spin – which is that the WFP ‘caved in’ and is now embracing and endorsing Cuomo’s reform agenda.” 

“And reporters believe that?” 

“Yeah. Completely. No one is even questioning it.” 

“You’re kidding, right?” 

“No, they think it’s true.” 

“Wait a minute. They think organized labor just signed up for a wage freeze for public employees, a property tax cap, and major spending reductions in education and health care?” 

“Yeah. They just accept it as true because the Cuomo camp said so. Nobody has even posed a question to CSEA, PEF, NYSUT or 1199.  They just reported it as fact.” 

“Decades of labor advocacy thrown out the window and the reporters don’t question it?” 

“Nope.” 

“I knew the reporters were lazy, but are they also stupid, gullible and blind?” 

“It would appear so.”
