Marcia Kramer of Channel 2 CBS News here in NYC is the ONLY Reporter that:
1) Stands up to Mayor Bloomberg, and doesn’t back down
2) Asks Bloomberg the TOUGH Questions w/follow ups (if Bloomberg lets her get a follow up question in!)
All of the other reporters throw ‘Softballs’ at Bloomberg during the King’s Press Conferences. Marcia Kramer should be Applauded for doing her research, and asking the Questions that Matter. The other Reporters should have their Press Credentials REVOKED!!!
You can tell Bloomberg doesn’t like Marcia, and can’t wait to cut her short when she asks her questions. Bloomberg usually doesn’t even answer her questions. For instance, Marcia brought up the FACT that the Deputy Mayor and Bloomberg were not in NYC during the Blizzard, and asked the Mayor where he was, and should both the Deputy Mayor and Bloomberg both be out of NYC at the same time in General? Bloomberg told her that he or his Administration does not divulge that information, etc. and hurriedly picked another reporter for the next question. Bloomberg does this EVERTIME regarding Marcia’s Questions. Bloomberg Dreads Marcia’s Questions. Bloomberg treats Marcia like a pest when he calls on her, and can’t wait to go on to the next question. Actually, Bloomberg shows her very little respect. Her fellow reporters can Learn a little something from their Colleague.
Marcia Kramer………KEEP on asking the Tough Questions, and don’t settle for his Half Ass Answers. You should be Applauded by the Execs at Channel 2 CBS News!! And the People of NYC should applaud you for Standing up to the Mayor, and not letting him Bully you. Ask the tough Follow Up Questions to Bloomberg’s Lack of Response to your Original Questions, and Hold him Accountable.
Don’t let him talk over you, or pass you up so early.
