“None are exactly celebrities”

May 23, 2011

Jake Mooney offers this video follow-up to his excellent piece on Iris Weinshall’s involvement with the Neighbors for Better Bike Lanes lawsuit.  Much like his earlier bit of reporting, it’s a nice, sober antidote to the more sensationalistic aspects of this nontroversy.  Mooney’s a very good journalist, but it seems that this story strains even his most sincere attempts at impartiality.  Maybe it’s just my own confirmation bias, but I challenge you to watch as he explains NBBL’s take on the data and not imagine him sitting on his hands to stop from slapping his forehead.

They have their own data that they’ve gathered from a…spy camera mounted on a rooftop.  Also, they say that the process wasn’t thorough enough.  You know, how you square that with a process that’s gone on for a few years before the installation of this lane, that’s kind of what their lawyer’s got to do.

    Not a TV show, just an extra on the City Limits blog.
