Something's fishy about DOT man's retirement

(Continued)

Of course, this is the same Cuomo whose communications director, Richard Bamberger, kept a 35-page dossier on Albany political reporter Liz Benjamin. The document, leaked to the website BuzzFeed last April, has a particularly disturbing list of innocuous passages from Benjamin’s reporting that Bamberger considered hostile.

“The secret dossier on Liz Benjamin is the stuff of Richard Nixon and Eliot Spitzer,” BuzzFeed’s source said. “One has to wonder if similar dossiers are being put together on other reporters.”

Unfortunately, one must wonder about this, indeed, since we have a governor who seems to view an informed public not as an important pillar of democracy, but as nothing more than a threat to his image.
