WNYC

When the Wall Street Journal's Dorothy Rabinowitz called Citi Bike a product of Mayor Bloomberg's "autocratic, totalitarian" mind, the reaction wasn't exactly muted.  New York Magazine concocted a Venn diagram addressing why conservatives hate Citi Bike (hint: it's vaguely French), and even Jon Stewart jumped in with"Slow Down, Lady Hunger Games!" and a hefty 5 1/2 minute segment. Now, Rabinowitz is back for more.
