Newsom Continues Ignoring Local Media, But Apparently Talks to NY Times
|I like you. Do you like me?|
But while all we get these days are Godot-like messages from Newsom's spokesman, Nathan Ballard, making empty promises that the mayor will not talk today -- maybe tomorrow -- an article that appeared in the New York Times dated Nov. 7 suggests he is indeed conducting interviews with "the media."
The Times article is about how the city's JobsNow program is akin to public-private patronage and includes a response from Mr. M.I.A himself: "'These are real people getting real jobs,' he said in an interview," reads the article (although it doesn't reference whom Newsom was talking to and when he did so). It's possible this interaction took place before Newsom dropped out of the race and retreated to his Fortress of Solitude. Calls to the New York Times regarding the matter have not yet been returned. We hope we're not getting dumped by them, too.
