David Giambusso vs. Cory Booker
A reporter takes on the mayor he covers after the mayor doesn't like some of that coverage.
- Once upon a time, a man named Cory Booker ran for mayor of Newark in an Oscar-nominated documentary.
- Then, he ran the city of Newark in an Emmy-nominated TV miniseries.
- Along the way, he saved a woman from a burning building and became a superhero on Twitter.
- Then one day, a reporter wrote a story showing that he softened his stance on gun control.
- The mayor got mad.
- The reporter got mad, too.
- The mayor says the reporter didn't talk to him.
- The reporter said he tried.
- Then Twitter got mad at the reporter.
- One even used a pun! Though it wasn't clear he realized it.
- Someone who is paid to stick up for the mayor did just that, but not to the reporter's satisfaction.
- The reporter demanded that Twitter back up the criticism with facts.
