Cover Up The Kettle? Media “Asleep At The Switch” With Kettle Black Scandal
So what happened to The Kettle Black story?
You know. Those cases against five defendants (many of which are relatives of State Senator Martin Golden) for the brawl on April 10, 2010 at the Kettle Black in Bay Ridge?
Well, one emailer brought some new details to light regarding this situation, and it involves things the media’s not telling us.
One person who emailed us informed us that, according to a public access database the courts use, these cases were scheduled to appear in court on Friday, December 10, 2010. Despite this, on Saturday December 11th, all four cases had disappeared from the system with no indication as to what had happened to them.
Which led us to ask: Yeah, just what the heck is going on with this story?
In case you are unfamiliar with the case, here’s The Daily News’ story on it.
The Bay Ridge Cabal would love nothing better than for the details and the circumstances to go unquestioned given this story’s uncomfortable connection to their idol Marty Golden. That much is certain.
That led one emailer to say to us:
Right now “the public” knows nothing about what’s happened with these formerly newsworthy cases, where two cops and a fireman were assaulted and badly injured. The press seems equally asleep at the switch and there’s been no coverage for months.
Why the media have not been following this story is a mystery, but we will be contacting various outlets to ask why they are staying silent on the case.
