AM Briefing from for July 16, 2013


Bob Filner is still San Diego’s Mayor despite angry cries for his resignation. Yesterday former San Diego Councilwoman Donna Frye was yelling her sexual harassment allegations from the steps of city hall. Frye says that the Mayor aggressively kissed and groped women.

Filner did respond to the allegation with interviews for a few select stations. No one knows what the criteria were for getting the sit-down with the mayor.

Are they friendlier to the administration?

Did they submit question lists before hand?

Did the Mayor choose the reporter for personal reasons?

Was there some other kind of “arrangement”?

However it is worth noting that they were all male reporters And the first station to get the interview is the former employer of the Mayor’s Media Relation person.

In court today two sentencing’s of note. Both in Chula Vista’s courthouse at 1:30.
