Bloomberg Bucks Enter the NYC Mayoral Race
https://nypost.com/2021/04/30/democrats-in-nyc-want-more-charter-schools...? This is a propaganda piece by the NY Post
https://www.politico.com/states/new-york/city-hall/story/2021/04/29/adam... No other press is mentioning this bogus poll.
Let me explain:
In 2009 Michael R. Bloomberg spent $102 Million of his own money to buy his third term. Since Bill de Blasio's successful race in 2013, Bloomberg's money has found a way to torture the Mayor.
One very public way he did this was through his monetary support to the headed by Eva Moskowitz. Her coven includes Jenny Sedlis who wrote the piece above and Andrew Cuomo, the (R) Party, and funded at least in part by Bloomberg. The driving principle has been to demonize and discredit de Blasio and return the public school revenue from the hands of The City, back to the RW Democrats and the Republicans they collude with.
Some history--In 2009 Bloomberg insured his opponents defeat by buying up ALL of the available TV time. Locally and on many networks' NYC affiliate stations. Bill Thompson could not get his message out. He folded his tent long before Election Day, which I know because I donated to his campaign and months before the voting day I did not get any more emails or phone calls.
Back to 2013 and up until the present moment NYC has suffered a barrage of negative threatening, dishonest, ads warning voters "Not to give up on Kids," for one and now unrelenting scolding about "Putting StudentsFirst." All of them were aimed at getting Control of the NYC Schools back into Albany's hands away from NYC Mayoral Control a privilege Bill de Blasio has enjoyed and done miracles withfor our lowest income schools.
Bloomberg Closed public schools and packed their students into existing schools. 460 Charter Schools were given the okay to open. Right now only 326 of them remain open. What happened in the neighborhoods that were subjected to the For Profit Movement? Nothing good.
There have been many stories in the press about how with 43 days until the first Early Voting Day occurs on June 12, that "now we are entering the TV ad and money phase."
$102 Million. That is the 2009 number. How much will the Charter School Cabal pony up this time?
The financial disclosures from the current candidates we have seen so far are miniscule in comparison. But what we have had is a campaign climate where the reach of giant money is known going in. We know what can happen.
The question for now is how, if at all, campaigns have prepared for an onslaught of Reserved, Paid for TV time that blocks out the sun. I have not seen anything about how many hours of TV time have been locked in. Let alone, by whom.
The numbers we have heard from the candidates are miniscule in comparison.
