QUOTED: Doug Ford unleashes his best playground insults on reporters
When you go back at the media, man, they’re like a bunch of little, sucky little kids—they whine and cry and moan and they sensationalize and they lie through their teeth.
—Councillor Doug Ford, bringing a schoolyard flavour yesterday to the ongoing war between the Fords and the media during the Newstalk 1010 radio show he hosts with Mayor Rob Ford. Doug said he and Rob are “the only two elected officials in recent memory” who “talk back to the media,” which is why they’re the target of so much scrutiny. In the span of two weeks, journalists have accused Rob Ford of jumping the queue for road repairs, using city resources for his youth football team and misrepresenting the cost to taxpayers of a city-led trip to Chicago; the mayor, in turn, called journalists “pathological liars” and all but accused them of spying on his house. Amid the childishness, it was staunch Ford ally Denzil Minnan-Wong who adopted a parental tone—he told CBC’s Matt Galloway on Friday that the mayor needs to be more careful about how he conducts his affairs, and should just generally “smarten up.” [Newstalk 1010]
Update: Doug Ford is still quite angry.

The mayor will smarted up — when Fords fly.
This just proves (as does Doug’ss “prick” remark, that you can be a millionaire and still live in the gutter. What trash these guys are.
yes they are white trash, and a large percentage of white trash in toronto voted for them.
so in the end, we get what we deserve.
what an idiotic comment from a so-called ‘Genius’…..so really Genius?…..seeing as Mr. Ford won the last election with the higher percentage of votes than either Mr. Miller or that ‘Bad Boy’….the majority of Torontonians are ‘white trash’????……that’s a trashy comment in of itself wouldn’t you say?
Keep in mind, Rob Ford’s election was a quasi-referendum on Mayor Miller’s tenure…..so whatever ill feelings you have regarding the Ford adminstration, it should all fall flatly at the feet of Mr. Miller and how he mislead, fumbled, mismanaged or showed an utter disregard to anything outside of the old City boundaries. Like it or not, Toronto is everything between the Lake and Steeles Avenue and Hwy 427 to the Rouge, once you embrace that fact, you’ll find your contempt for fellow Torontonians will melt away.
I am so sick and tired of hearing bad things about our Mayor Rob Ford. Get use to it he’s one of a kind. We love you Rob Keep Going. Cheers
