While listening to 1010WINS radio for news on upcoming storm Sandy, I heard professional menace Chuck Schumer put his two cents in. For those not in the greater NY area, Schumer has some kind of special deal/payoff with both 1010WINs and WCBSNewsRadio whereas he is given free airtime each week to say whatever he likes unchallenged and there is never, ever any follow up at all on thousands of Schumer “reports”.
Usually, he’s shaking down some business who won’t “play along” with him, but today he’s on the airwaves to weigh in on the storm. In an absolutely incredible moment, Chuck was wringing his hands about “…the potential economic damage to the city from Hurricane Sandy.”
If I sat here and thought about it for a thousand hours I’d be hard pressed to come up with anything that could do more economic damage to the city of NY than Chuck Schumer, himself.
Stay safe to all of you in the path of the storm.
