Bloomberg loses his cool with reporter
Bloomberg lost it when a reporter started a question by saying that he "maintained" a dialogue with the Sean Bell demonstrators. Apparently, hizzoner considers "maintain" to be a dirty word.
Lost City on the outburst:
For the record, Webster’s New World College Dictionary (Fourth Edition) lists one definition of “maintain” as “a) to uphold or defend, as by argument; affirm b) to declare in a positive way; assert.”
I wonder how he feels about these words: "Reactionary," "Petty," "Childish," "Doctrinaire," "Paranoid."
