Episode #765: Bigly Incorrect
First Broadcast: 5/15/17
On May 9, 2017, Donald Trump fired F.B.I. Director James Comey, surprising virtually everyone who found out about it, including Comey, who received the news via television before being officially notified himself. Among many other questions: Why did Trump, apropos of nothing, say in his letter to Comey "I am not under investigation"? Why did Trump wait until Comey was literally on the other side of the country to dismiss him? Is it believable that Trump is only now displeased with the way Comey treated Hillary Clinton before the 2016 election? Is it just a coincidence that Comey had asked Congress for more money to investigate ties between Trump and Russia, before Trump fired him? Could this incident help motivate voters to put Democrats in charge of Congress in 2018? I don't have all the answers, but I can't wait to find out!
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
