SFist and Channel 7 Expose Peter Ragone

by Paul Hogarth on January 31, 2007

The talk of the town this week is how Mayor Newsom’s press secretary, Peter Ragone, allegedly posted comments with a phony name on SFist and other blogs that attacked the Mayor’s opponents.

On January 29th, Channel 7’s Investigative Team featured this five-minute news segment where SF State Professor Yumi Wilson said that Ragone’s behavior “poses red flags” of trust between the Mayor’s Office and the press. Board President Aaron Peskin added that the whole thing “smacks of Nixonian political trickery.”
