An email from New York Mayor Bill de Blasio to aides turned into a New York Times story Tuesday because the mayor copied a reporter on the message.
According to the Times (and, one would assume, the mayor’s office), including the reporter was an accident, but some observers wondered if it wasn’t a clever ruse to raise an issue.
De Blasio’s email describes a frustrating trip via subway to a speaking engagement in downtown Manhattan. He wrote:
We waited 20 mins for an express only to hear there were major delays. This was knowable info. Had we had it, we would have avoided a lot of hassles.
