The Mix: Voices From The Week of October 11th

Special: Fallout from Paladino's Comments in Williamsburg

Friday, October 15, 2010

Welcome to It's A Free Country's The Mix, where we take some of the notable clips and other voices found on WNYC this week and mix 'em up. Here's what we've got on tap. Voices are in blue, connections are bold, links to explore.

This week on the mix, we're devoting the entire mix to Carl Paladino's controversial remarks in Williamsburg about homosexuality. His words led to immediate rebukes from Andrew Cuomo, a retraction of his statements on national TV, and pushback in the other direction from Orthodox Jewish Rabbi Yehuda Levin, who withdrew his endorsment. Each week seems to bring another batch of controversial clips from the NYS governor's race, but this seems to be a high (or low) point, and we thought we'd let the audio moment stand for itself.
