Most of the stories I've read suggest that the press had gotten wind of her struggle with depression and substance abuse and was about to go public with it, so this was a move by DiBlasio to get ahead of the news cycle so he could own the spin.

And it looks like DiBlasio is going to jettison Spitzer's new girlfriend.

I gotta say this post essentially hits it spot on and should be the end of discussion. On all points.

De Blasio will give us all plenty of fodder in the coming yeas. No need to focus on crap like this.

There's some messiness in her past as a politician, but that is probably true of every politician.

There were a lot of vile things said and suggested about her family, especially regarding her son, Trig. But a lot of commentary was accurately pointing out how hypocritical she was regarding abstinence, birth control, etc.

The liberal media does not have a monopoly on yellow journalism. There are plenty of liberal AND right-wing media outlets (or do Fox, the NY Post, Rush Limbaugh, the Wall Street Journal, Glenn Beck, the National Review, and the rest not exist?). They both throw a lot of irrelevant crap around regarding public figures they don't side with. It just makes for a giant partisan pissing contest which distracts from real issues.



Fail. It's never ok to go after someone's kids, and intellectually dishonest to feel it's ok because you don't agree with someone's politics.

Smart enough to become the Governor and do what most say was a great job doing it.

But my comment was in response to the post about how the press can go after those not born with silver spoons, and Palin fits that-and her daughter was savaged by the liberal elite media, I haven't seen that happen to Bill's daughter yet.


Bill's daughter was born with a silver spoon.

This is exactly how Obama was chosen instead of Hilary. I wouldn't mind whether Bill was a cocksuckee as long as he got his job done.

It's worse when you're a Republican and a woman, see Sarah Palin.

I really couldn't care less about what his children are up to. A young woman abusing drugs and drink? I'd say that sound about normal these days, in my experience.

Added to the news is his press woman shacking up with still married Eliot Spitzer, the optics aren't good as he gets set to move into Gracie Mansion.

NYT Pick

DeBlasio cynically used his children as campaign props to get elected, creating a happy picture -- in 30-second TV spots -- of a well-adjusted family. (For those who say, all politicians use their families, quick, how many children does Andrew Cuomo have?) Now, in order to get out in front of this story, as they say in the PR business, no doubt because some journalist was tracking it down, he deploys his daughter in a preemptive media strike -- in a professionally produced video infomercial, no less. And puts it out on Christmas eve, the better to limit its exposure in news coverage, while having the video with its editorially unfiltered "confession" available to go viral through social media, garnering Big Bill sympathy instead of new or added scrutiny.

It would be hard to find an example of a major political figure more cynically -- or skillfully -- using his own children. Sarah Palin, perhaps, who sought to turn potential criticism of her as a parent to advantage with all sorts of psychobabble hooey that was, in fact, embraced by her most devoted fans. I expect something similar to happen here, with DeBlasio supporters fawning over the whole family as "brave" and "strong" in the face of adversity.
