I know that I am a little late to the party here, but yesterday my friend and fellow blogger- Howard Megdal revealed in his Lo Hud Mets Blog column that he has had his access to the Mets revoked because they “didn’t like his reporting”.
First off let me say that Howard is one of the biggest – most die hard Mets fans that I know. He cares about the Mets, he bleeds the proverbial orange and blue, and to deny him access to the Mets because he authored a well written and thoroughly researched book about the finances of the Mets ( Wilpon’s Folly) in my own opinion reeks of pettiness. The last time I heard of an organization puling the credentials of a writer is when the Knicks pressured the Daily News to pull Frank Isola off their beat.
Yes this in my opinion this comes across as a petty punishment of Dolanesque proportions, and to see the team that I rabidly follow do this to one of the kindest, thoughtful guys in journalism/blogdom just makes me sick.
I just hope whoever sent down this mandate would please reconsider.
