Hunley-Adossa, via the compromised Witt & C-L, counter-attacks weakly against coverage in The Local, AYR

Atlantic Yards Report

The Courier-Life's Stephen Witt tosses Norman Oder a big, fat softball, and Oder knocks it out of the park.

The entire post, which sets the record straight, is well worth a read, but this passage in particular makes the Community Newspaper Group look like the gang that couldn't shoot straight:

It's pretty funny that CNG's BoroPolitics site is hosting an article claiming that Hunley-Adossa is accessible, given that the original piece in The Local quotes Gersh Kuntzman of the Brooklyn Paper, which is one of the contributors to BoroPolitics:
Nor are we the only news outlet that is having trouble contacting Ms. Hunley-Adossa.

“We at The Brooklyn Paper have been astounded by the lack of response to our questions from Delia and her campaign,” said Gersh Kuntzman, editor of The Brooklyn Paper. “She aspires to a very lofty position –- public servant –- and, as such, she needs to answer questions from independent media.”
