With Nat Hentoff’s Support and Norman Siegel’s Ads, Former NYCLU Legislative Director Attacks

Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been buying his fair share of ads in local newspapers. But this past weekend, a new paper appeared in hip Brooklyn clothing stores and Lower Manhattan subway stations that the mayor probably will ignore all together.

Called “Fed Up New Yorkers,” the slender, six-page publication is stridently and unapologetically anti-Bloomberg. Inside, writers rip into the mayor for every conceivable slight. He is criticized for overriding term limits, slammed for pandering to LGBT interest groups, accused of wanting to turn all public schools into charter schools and portrayed as a despotic king who loathes democracy."
