Weiner Won't Be a 'Press Critic'

Anthony Weiner said in a recent interview that the public hasn’t noticed Michael Bloomberg’s failure to push the city’s agenda in Albany because the mayor has "had a lapdog press corps."

The Congressman, of course, may have to deal with that press corps if he runs for mayor next year.

When I asked Weiner spokesman John Collins about the "lapdog" comment, he emailed:

"We won’t be a press critic. The mayor’s operation does a good job on all fronts and I think Anthony will stay out of the press evaluation business."
