Big sour apple?

“After covering New York’s City Hall for over 20 years, Mayor Bloomberg and his press secretary banned me from the mayor’s newsconference at the Blue Room in City Hall. This is an issue concerning not me but the fundamental right granted under the constitution to journalist.” — Rafael Martínez Alequín

Join me for our first live blog radio show, where Rafael, a journalism veteran who runs www.nycfreepress.com and yourfreepress.blogspot.com, will discuss the changing face of journalism, Latino issues and his philosophies about the press after years of dedication to causes he holds close.

Date: Sunday, May 13th, 2007
Time: 10:00 – 10:30 am PST
Dial in #: +1 (646) 478-4956

If you missed the live show, that’s alright, you can listen here.

Here is the petition written on Rafael’s behalf from the Political Observer: http://www.observer.com/2007/martinez-and-blue-room
