Bloomberg kicks press out of public event
From the Daily News:
Mayor Bloomberg summoned the news media to his confab this morning with Israel’s deputy foreign minsister with this listing on his public schedule:
*10:00 AM Meets with the Honorable Daniel Ayalon, Israel’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, City Hall, MANHATTAN, *Photo opportunity only.
Still, Hizzoner seemed a little miffed when a few of us arrived for the gathering in City Hall’s bullpen.
“Now we have the press here. Nice of you to tell me,” Bloomberg scolded a staffer. “I thought it was just cameras.”
He then aborted the story he seemed to be in the middle of telling and filled Ayalon in on the state of the media in New York as reporters were swiftly ushered out of the room.
