Critics Blast Latest Ratner Mailer As ‘Propaganda’
“The mailer is a piece of fiction,” said Goldstein.
“Ratner does not show the skyscrapers, makes the arena look like a beautiful meadow, repeats false and inflated job claims, repeats false and inflated revenue numbers, repeats the false claim that there has been ample, genuine community input, and through photos pretends that his proposal fits into the low-rise, residential neighborhood character that Brooklynites hold so dear,” he added.
Additionally, several blogs that have been highly critical of the FCRC proposal questioned the validity of the CBA.
These blogs pointed out that several of the signatories received money from FCRC, were not registered non-profit organizations prior to the CBA negotiations, and said that the document wasn’t inclusive of the entire community.
