Bloomberg Attempts to Use Yankees Win for His Campaign

Notice Michael Bloomberg shnoogling into the picture. Hats off to sports reporter Kenny Albert — he didn’t give Bloomberg a chance to cop some of the glory. He’s one of the few media people who hasn’t gone into the tank for Michael Bloomberg. We hope his job is safe.

Here’s the City Room:

Mayor Bloomberg held his position on the podium, so long that it almost seemed awkward.

Asked whether the Fox Sports coverage found the mayor’s constant on-camera presence in the clubhouse awkward, Lou D’Ermilio, the spokesman for Fox Sports, said, “We had nothing to do with him being there. The moment was about the New York Yankees and the team winning a pennant. We interviewed team executives, the manager, the MVP, and the players. That’s what we do after a game.”

Asked if the network had any previous experience with a city’s mayor turning up in the coverage of a clubhouse celebration, Mr. D’Ermilio said, “I don’t recall the last time there was one in there.”

And here’s Newsday:

Sunday night’s TV MVP, though, is Fox’s Kenny Albert, who showed up in the winning clubhouse after having called the Vikings-Steelers game earlier in the day.

Then he kept his focus on relevant interview subjects – i.e. people who play for the Yankees – while ignoring mayor Michael Bloomberg, who hovered for several minutes, seemingly hoping Albert would ask him something – anything! – before Election Day.
