Hypocrisy at Cambridge City Council

Longest serving Cambridge MA City Councilor Ken Reeves, a Harvard College graduate and a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School supports the Police Commissioner's letter regarding distortion by the Cambridge Chronicle. On several occasions previously he said the Chronicle is not a real newspaper. He imitates the Obama administration which says that Fox News is not a real news operation. This is humorous coming from a man who openly lies about what he says. It is shameful that a man who did so much good for this city shows intolerance for the First Amendment protections extended to journalists. That is not to say that the current leadership of the local paper is doing a good job. They are doing the best they can. Reeves joins Obama showing his Nixonian fear of journalism. Listen to the loud silence about distortion on WGBH-TV, NECN, in the Boston Globe and the New York Times. Are press releases from the Police and the City Manager reliable?
