  • New 'Agents of the City' Documents Released After de Blasio's 'Pay to Play' Investigation Meeting

    NY1 ^ | February 24, 2017 | Bobby Cuza
    Shortly after Mayor Bill de Blasio met with the U.S. Attorney's office Friday morning, City Hall released a trove of documents concerning communications between the de Blasio administration and outside advisors, known as the "Agents of the City." NY1's Bobby Cuza dug through the documents and filed the following report on what he found. On what turned out to be a bad news day for the mayor, one where reporters were busy reporting on his meeting with federal investigators, City Hall decided it was a good time to dump some documents — about 1,600 pages in all, including correspondence between...

  • 6 Big Cities See Hiring Fade After Minimum Wage Hikes

    IBD ^ | January 6, 2016 | Jed Graham
    U.S. cities that implemented big minimum-wage hikes to $10 an hour or more in 2015 have seen a strikingly similar aftermath: Job gains have fallen to multiyear lows at restaurants, hotels and other leisure and hospitality venues. The data aren't, for the most part, stark and reliable enough to amount to smoking-gun proof. But Chicago, Oakland, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. — all on the leading edge of the push for big minimum wage hikes — all show worrisome job trends.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is feeling unappreciated. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, he suggests that many of his accomplishments are being overlooked because of the day-to-day news cycle. “A lot of people outside New York City understand what happened in the first year of New York City better than people in New York City,” de Blasio said. …

    The man who accused Elmo’s puppeteer of sexual misconduct reportedly wants to recant his recantation. Sheldon Stephens, 24, last week withdrew sensational claims that, as an underage teen, he had a wild fling with Kevin Clash, the voice behind the beloved Muppet Elmo. Now Stephens is interviewing lawyers in hopes of ripping up the $125,000 deal he reached with Clash, 52, to deny there was any illegal sex, according to TMZ. (snip)

    Tourists in downtown Washington, D.C. may have been confused by a small, colorful gathering on the mall on Saturday, as a group of activists came together for the “Million Puppet March” with a message of government support for PBS. While the Count may have been disappointed – the assembled crowd for this million-strong march was a few hundred at most – the activists in their cobbled-together homemade costumes did their best. Big Bird, Grover and the Wild Things took pictures with fans in a sea of Obama/Biden signs and ‘Puppets Unite!’ posters. For anyone walking to the Smithsonian museums, they...

    President Obama was on the ropes in the polls after the first presidential debate. After the second presidential debate, he hit the mat in the polls. And after the third presidential debate, he looks to be down for the count. The question, of course, is why. Looking at the debates alone doesn't tell the full story. Romney surely won the first debate -- in fact, he cleaned President Obama's clock -- but in the second debate, he fought President Obama to a draw. And in the third and final debate, which centered on foreign policy, Romney pulled his punches. So...

    "You’ve seen, as middle-income people in this country, incomes go down $4,300 a family, even as gasoline prices have gone up $2,000. Health insurance premiums, up $2,500. Food prices up. Utility prices up. The middle-income families in America have been crushed over the last four years." -- Mitt Romney "We don’t have to settle for what we’re going through. We don’t have to settle for gasoline at four bucks. We don’t have to settle for unemployment at a chronically high level. We don’t have to settle for 47 million people on food stamps.

    Soooooo... What costume will you be wearing at the Million Puppet March in Washington on Nov. 3? I mean this is THE march of our generation and one does want to wear the proper attire. Personally I am torn between wearing a Big Bird costume or appearing as a Temporary SockPuppet. Since maybe half of the marchers will be appearing as Big Bird perhaps the Temporary SockPuppet would be the way to go although I worry that a certain faux bouncer from Boston might show up in that costume. Perhaps appearing as a Binder would be the way to...

    Slackers for Obama ^ | 10/17/2012 | Brian Ross
    In yet another twist following the second presidential debate, Big Bird has declared that the buck stops with him and has taken the responsibility and blame for the entire Benghazi attack and its aftermath. In an exclusive interview originally scheduled for release after the presidential election, the oversized Muppet asserts that the potential loss of government funding for the Children’s Television Workshop -- although only 15% of its total budget -- weighed so heavily upon President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Intelligence Director James Clapper that it interfered with their decisions about embassy security and communications...

    When the evening began, one observation dominated the conversation: “If President Barack Obama has another debate like the last one, the election’s over.” When the evening ended, I was struck by a different thought: If Obama had performed this way at the first debate, the election would have been over. In every debate, whatever the format, whatever the questions, there is one and only one way to identify the winner: Who commands the room? Who drives the narrative? Who is in charge? More often than not on Tuesday night, I think, Obama had the better of it.

    MSNBC’s race-baiting commentator Touré has an amusing pep talk in Sunday’s Daily News, in which he assures the Democratic faithful that Obama has this one sewn up. The evidence Touré offers in support of his conviction is as thin as his overuse of metaphor is thick (“It has been so long since Democrats felt even a scintilla of electoral despair that the slightest taste of it was frightening enough to make them look like [sic] they were in Edvard Munch’s ‘The Scream.’”) The timing of the column is interesting, coming as it does the morning after Real Clear Politics updated...

    I’ve not heard so much talk about Big Bird and Sesame Street since I was six years old! Ever since the first presidential debate this year, when Mitt Romney mentioned Big Bird, with reference to his desire to pull funding for PBS, something about the big yellow bird has been in the news on a daily basis. Now it looks like some “bird brain” has come up with a wacky idea to march on Washington, D.C., in support of Big Bird, on November 3, just three days before the election. Though Romney’s call for stripping subsidizing of PBS only really...

    When a politician is in trouble, he usually falls back on what he knows best -- the world he saw around him when he entered into political awareness as a young adult. That's what seems to have happened to the Democratic ticket after Barack Obama's disastrous performance in the Denver debate Oct. 3. So Obama on the campaign trail and Joe Biden in the vice presidential debate fell back on what they know from their formative political years. At least that's the best explanation I can come up with for the Obama campaign's obsession with Big Bird. On the campaign...
