WaPo's Jay Mathews says he doesn't deserve to be called "union basher":
...this is all fair comment, but i hope you also read the column and see the praise i heaped onto AFT president Randi Weingarten. that doesnt look like union bashing to me.Okay, Jay. Maybe I shouldn't have called you a union basher. You did indeed praise Randi. But geeez, that was a crappy column you wrote. I'm glad you don't even try and defend it.
Anti-union spy Mike Antonucci claims he really did mingle with NEA teachers:
Repeating something over and over again doesn't make it true, Mike. Fred spent 10 minutes with me and claims to know where I've been for six days. Maybe he should have spoken to some of the people in his own delegation who complained they couldn't find me because I wasn't in the press area. You also left out the names Fred called me. Thank you for that.You make some good points, Mike. Repeating something certainly doesn't make it true. And name calling is never right. Thanks for reminding us. But how do you know that Fred didn't have his own spies watching your every move? Do you have any evidence, ie. pictures, signed affidavits from teachers, proving that you left the press area? If not, I'm afraid I've got to go with Fred on this one.
Keep those comments coming.
