http://www.suntimes.com/news/marin/16359472-452/emanuel-down...Mayor Rahm Emanuel, at a Monday news conference, didn’t like questions about whether his press office had recorded reporters’ conversations without first seeking their consent. That’s a big no-no under the Illinois Eavesdropping Act, one of the toughest two-party consent laws in the country. ....Emanuel, invoking “Will” Shakespeare, dismissed such bothersome questions about his press office doing the same as “much ado about nothing.”....Emanuel, at his press conferences, hates it when reporters have the temerity to go off-message on him. His Monday appearance had been called to talk about physical fitness, veterans and the park district. When the wayward press corps turns to a different topic, the mayor’s default reprimand is to invoke “the children,” a subject that Emanuel believes he, and only he, really cares about. Unlike heartless news people.“I have really big issues,” said the mayor, rebuking WMAQ-Channel 5 reporter Phil Rogers for continuing to press the issue of surreptitious tape recording. “The health of these kids, that’s my No. 1 issue . . . I don’t remember it in my 100-day plan or my four-year plan, a policy to make sure that you, journalists, that we have a record on that.”Or, as Shakespeare put in “Antony and Cleopatra,” “Give me my robe, put on my crown; I have immortal longings.”It is time for the smarmy, sanctimonious, I’m-the-only-guy-who-cares-about-the-children routine to end.First of all, there’s the matter of a law that is still on the books.It's quite funny to watch the lib press feign outrage at the one they worship. This is what democrats do all of the time. Not to worry, these lackeys in the press will cower down in short order and get back in line after they have a chance to get this minor distraction off of their chest. Libs crack me up.
