NY Times on Bloomberg's food nannyism



Such a long, hectically upbeat article about the controversy, and the Tiimes couldn't find a single quote from anyone who would directly criticize the bossyboots mayor or his health commissioner for their assault on the freedom of the kitchen and of the table? The closest the article gets is toward the end, when one source criticizes the city's restaurant inspection as being too geared toward monetary fines, while former Mayor Koch expresses a very mild sentiment about how food is supposed to be fun. Are the likely sources with more pungent anti-nannyism views, in particular restaurant chefs and owners, now too scared to talk? Or did the Times not even try to line up such sources?
