Gary Tilzer, the owner of the most in-depth political blog in New York City at True News From Change NYC, has posted a fair use political satire photo illustration of New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn's luxurious condo.

"For the next few days, True News will be inviting guests," to Speaker Quinn's new home, Mr. Tilzer has promised on his blog.

The magazine fluff piece about Speaker Quinn's luxury condo is the latest breach of journalism ethics by The New York Times. Activists have twice organised major demonstrations outside the world headquarters of The New York Times to protest what activists describe as an intentional campaign by editors of The NYTimes to only publish public relations articles about Speaker Quinn to help fluff up her mayoral campaign. On September 12, activists held this demonstration in front of The NYTimes building :

Prior to that, on August 28, activists held their first protest against the deliberate media bias, that promotes the political campaign of Speaker Quinn :

Activists have said that they believe that Carolyn Ryan, an editor at The NYTimes, is partly responsible for the editorial bias in the newspaper. Other activists also point out that because The NYTimes is losing money, as are other old mainstream media companies, the newspaper may be trying to curry favour with the billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who may end up having to provide financial support to fluff up The NYTimes.

Meanwhile, The NYTimes makes no connection between the political graft and corruption in city politics that is responsible for the 1% to live high on the hog, while the New York City budget shreds the social safety net, ignoring the rise in poverty and homelessness.

Tortious Interference With Democracy ?

When Mayor Michael Bloomberg gets all up in the faces of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer and former Controller Bill Thompson, does Mayor Bloomberg intentionally damage the contractual or other business relationships of these mayoral candidates, their campaign workers, their paid consultants, their supporters, and other political or business relationships or activities ? Is there such an act as tortious interference with democracy ? What does New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn think about the appearances of Mayor Bloomberg interfering with democratic elections ?

Were Wire Taps on John Liu Politically-Motivated ?

From : Was John Liu Wire Tapped as part of a Political Hit Job ? by Suzannah B. Troy :

"John Liu exposed CityTime and ECTP 911 tech corruption -- bigger than CityTime. Liu called for criminal investigation on ECTP based on audits. Where are the investigations ? Liu killed major deals, but leading billionaires as well as SAIC that gets bail-outs -- oops contracts from Pentagon -- and are connected to The White House."

John Catsimatidis WABC News Interview

In video posted to YouTube by, John Catsimatidis is interviewed by Channel 7 Eyewitness News :

After just falling short of telling how much money current Mayor Michael Bloomberg was going to spend to usurp a 3rd term as mayor of New York City, Bloomberg's lackey John Catsimatidis chokes when Eyewitness News reporter asks him a question about Raymond Kelly's Stop & Frisk policy.

He desperately tries to defend the illegitimate policy as he fumbles with words to justify the unconstitutional and racist program that overwhelmingly targets young men of color and the poor. If all politicians were this stupid, America wouldn't be the fascist police state it is today.
