Did We Mention the Brooklyn Papers?

In this week’s Transom, your trusty reporter may have (in the interests of moving things along) slurred over a fact well-known to him, and therefore left an unintended impression.

Gersh Kuntzman, a former employee of the New York Post, was mentioned in the story in relation to current Post employees. He is not one any longer, having left that paper in what he himself describes as “a bit of a huff” six months ago.

Mr. Kuntzman is currently happily employed as the editor-in-chief of the Brooklyn Papers. The Transom has happily perused the Fort Greene-Clinton Hill Paper quite recently, by the way, and found it terribly informative. So let the record reflect: for all your Kuntzman needs, do enjoy the Brooklyn Papers.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
