Setting the record straight
It was brought to my attention that Ruschell Boone from NY1 filed a story on Friday, December 3rd about a tree stump and a broken sidewalk alongside the Van Wyck Expressway service road in Jamaica.
Greg Mocker from WPIX reported on the same stump/sidewalk issue on Monday, December 6th, the same day I posted Ruschell's story here on the blog. Mocker said in his followup report after the stump was removed that the City was watching. Well, they are, but it's not him they're watching. Got this official statement from Parks:
"We saw the story on NY1. We haven't watched WPIX since Kaity and Jim got the boot."
And there you have it. On the trail of a reporter trying to take credit for someone else's work, I'm the Queens Crapper.
