Brickbats to Mayor Alvin Brown’s Office

Posted

Brickbats to Mayor Alvin Brown’s Office for blaming Bill Cosby for banning the media from his visit to Raines High School or any other schools Cosby asked to visit. Aleizha Batson, a spokesperson for Brown, told The Florida Times-Union, “Those of us on the ground didn’t have a problem with it [media access], but Dr. Crosby said absolutely not.” But Cosby’s camp read a blog on jacksonville.com and quickly called the mayor’s office to say Cosby had no issue with media coverage. David DeCamp, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office, said it was the result of a misunderstanding and the city was responsible. Cosby came here for the city’s education summit.
