I don’t like NY Post media columnist Phil Mushnick. In fact, I’ve written about it before.Â I think he’s a hypocrite and a phony and I don’t think anything he says is ever constructive.Â I am not alone in holding these beliefs.
Yankee broadcaster Michael Kay is not fond of Mushnick either. Especially when Phil goes after Kay’s journalistic ethics. That happened last week. Kay responded Friday on his radio show.
Neil Best has a full transcript on his watchdog blog. Below is a brief sample.
â€œDonâ€™t scold me. Iâ€™m not your son. How dare you scold me? You ever scolded me to my face Iâ€™d punch you in the face. Scold me in print? No. Thatâ€™s not the way it works.

Now youâ€™re going to come back every single column and youâ€™re going to rip me for something I say. Good. I like where I am.
â€œBecause one day when I die more people are going to be sad than happy. And when you die itâ€™s going to be the complete opposite. Because people hate your guts in the business.
In the case ofÂ Leno v O’Brien, I’m with CoCo,Â and, now,Â in the case of Mushnick v Every other member of the media, I’m with KayKay.
