The Daily News has more on Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión walking out of a television interview last week after a reporter asked if the city Parks Commissioner lied about a running track displaced by construction on the new Yankee Stadium:
“A reporter asked me to call a colleague of mine – who I respect and have worked well with – a liar,” Carrión said later. “A principled individual doesn’t say that about another individual to satisfy a two-minute news clip on a television station.”
Which is apparently why politicans always walk off the set when reporters bait them?
