Paula Katinas, a writer for the Brooklyn Eagle, recently wrote about a “a Bay Ridge resident” attending a MTA meeting, but she failed to mention that the man, John Quaglione works in Senator Marty Golden’s office. The article is strange because it doesn’t contain any information about what Senator Golden is doing about the fare increase. In September, Katinas noted that Marty Golden is on the MTA Capital Boardbut she failed to disclose that info in the article this week.
Why would Katinas not disclose the relationship between this man and his boss? John Quaglione can easily talk to Senator Golden and get answers about the MTA. Did Katinas not want Ridgites to know that he works for Golden? Why didn’t Paula Katinas ask Marty Golden what he is going to do about it? Why didn’t The Eagle send someone to the meeting and get various views from NY’ers? Strangely, the article notes that Quaglione sent in a picture of himself which looks like Assemblywoman Malliotakis’ picture from last year?
I sent a tweet to the Brooklyn Eagle to correct the story (at least online). The Eagle didn’t respond but the paper sent me a tweet which said I was a top interactors. #SocialMediaFail
