So here I am yesterday afternoon cleaning up the hair balls that my cat had spewed forth whilst cleaning it up with that rag, The New York Post. As those hair balls are being collected I see an article entitled, "New parent group all $nug with UFT,"written by a "journalist" Carl Campanile. Upon further reading I spit out my Coke and my eyeballs shoot of their sockets, all in a stereotypical sign of surprise. This article much to my chagrin, not only mocks Mike Mulgrew, which I have no problem with, but mocks Mona Davids, which I do have a problem with.
Campanile insinuates that a donation of $10,000 from the UFT to Mona's organization, NYC Parents Union is a quid pro quo. Not just for giving a honor to Mulgrew, which he was not the only one, but to others as well. Worse, Campanile, forgetting that the first job of any journalist is to refrain from bias allows Democrats For Education Reform's Führer Joe Williams to be quoted in a style befitting someone who has discovered that Clark Kent and Superman are one in the same,
“It was always clear that the UFT was behind this organization, but now they aren’t even trying to pretend there is any separation,”Shocking! Lest us not forget Joe Williams that DFER sugar daddy Rupert Murdoch, who happens to be the owner of The Post gave DFER's sister propaganda arm, Education Reform Now a fat check of $1 million.
Mona said she;
“welcomes and appreciates alliances with other individuals and organizations who share our interest in obtaining the highest-quality public education for all children in New York City.’’
