Great response. Whiny little self-righteous bitch. “Appalling?”
And with such an ironic name, too…Spitalnick? Ironic because you just know she has extreme dick-fright; no chance has this girl ever had a pearl necklace. Spoogeneck? I don’t think so. More like LabiaFace.

Dear Amy,

Thanks for your email. You believe our story was inaccurate and have demanded a correction. Totally fair. We are going over the transcript now.

What Bedford complained about was your tone, which, I have to agree, was whiny and annoying, and I say that in the spirit of helpful correction rather than as a criticism. Outside of New York City, adults generally write polite, cheerful emails to one another, even when asking for corrections. Something to keep in mind the next time you communicate with people who don’t live on your island.

Best,

Tucker Carlson

Tucker – it’s pretty appalling that this is how your staff chose to respond to us requesting a basic correction (and providing a transcript that directly contradicts the original story).

We’re reviewing the video now, Amy. If you annoy me with another whiny email before then, I’m muting this thread, thanks.

This clearly states that we should “follow the president’s vision.” It is disingenuous at best for you to suggest the mayors were calling for anything else. Please correct the story now.

That’s where we should – to question before about [inaudible] – if we really are serious about infrastructure investment, we would follow the president’s vision, which is long-term funding and substantially increased funding, and a higher share of [inaudible].

That is simply wrong. Watch the video and you will see the context – and, most importantly, I am telling you now as a mayoral spokesperson that they were highlighting the President’s plan as an “ideal reference point” for what the funding should be. So please correct the story now.

Amy,

Based on what is in the transcript, I have to respectfully disagree with your assessment.

The mayor called Obama’s plan “an ideal reference point” and talked about “[following] the president’s vision,” but never said that $80 billion was “adequate.”

Indeed, his claim that “we’re going to push for the highest number attainable” clearly implies that the mayors would gladly accept an even higher figure. That impression is further reinforced by his response to the question about exact dollar amounts, where he said, “we’re all working on that together,” indicating that the task force has not endorsed any specific figure.

Cordially,
Peter Fricke

Peter –

Your story on Mayor de Blasio and the USCM is totally inaccurate. The mayors said $50B in flat funding was not enough, and cited the President’s $80B proposal as one that boosted funding to adequate levels.

The transcript is on nyc.gov.
