Gavin Newsom Flips Out

From CBS 5 in San Francisco

In his first extensive interview since dropping out of the California governor's race, Newsom wanted to talk solely about the city's budget plight, but CBS 5 pushed him to answer questions about his uncharacteristic absence from the public limelight since ending his gubernatorial bid.

Newsom seemed to be agitated and annoyed at the questioning, proclaiming that he had made 69 public appearances since his decision to quit the race for governor - although his staff could not provide specific details about those appearances, which were not reflected on the mayor's public schedule.

Check out the video.

He didn't flip out. He was pissed at biased questions. Who wouldn't be, bonehead.

He almost pulled it off, until he stormed off at the interview- that's why he failed in the Governor's race. He's a GRADE A JERK!

There must be something we didn't see before the interview started, because it was already tense - Gavin answered his own question about the budget deficit, before interviewer launched into what must have been the 100th time he heard questions that day about his "strange disappearing act."

But what is weird is that later when the topic got around to the budget, Newsom didn't want to talk about it after all - too pissed by the whole tone so far. Reporters ARE like lemmings: they swarm like guppies or attack like sharks, depending on who's up and who's down.

I think Gavin would have made a crappy Governor but there is no more need for these arrogant "gotcha" reporters in today's media world. The fact that the state is better off without him or our own mayor running for governor doesn't excuse these reporters who do anything for ratings these days and build up the scum of the earth just to get "at" any elected, then start the cycle over again.

With NO thought for the good of the public or what they did to what may be a decent, honest person. The days for "editorial endorsements" are long past - look at how the Slimes is bought by Shallman for Essel like the Nooch.

But NO ONE is more averse to being investigated than reporters however third-rate - they like to hide behind "immunity." They love to crusade on their own political agenda integrity be damned - Rainey and the other mainstream journos are right about hack Jill Stewart and her paper but sadly, their own colleagues are often no better. No one needs any of them.
