The Long Island Power Authority is toast. 200,000 customers on Long Island still don’t have power after Hurricane Sandy, and won’t have power for another two weeks. But this story is not getting a lot of press from MSM, at least not yet. It will be a huge story Monday.
The charge is being led by Mike Francesa of WFAN 660 radio. WFAN was the flagship of Don Imus. This week his radio program has ceased being a sports talk show, and instead become all LIPA all the time, call in show. The stories being told are incredible: line workers being turned away because they are non-union, the silence of Gov. Cuomo, linemen not working because there are no foremen to tell them where to go or what to do, transformers being repaired but not powered, calls for the military to take over LIPA, etc. etc.
All this is happening while Mayor Bloomberg is outlawing food donations to shelters and imposing price controls on gasoline (i.e. if your license plate ends in a letter or odd number then you can get gas on an odd numbered date. Police are stationed to enforce this.)
The sheer incompetence is breathtaking. Some callers actually believe that LIPA is doing this on purpose.
Of course it doesn’t help LIPA that Francesa lives in Long Island himself, but the best part is listening to a sports guy condemn LIPA for being a monopoly. Its fantastic. Where else can you get this type of commentary from the mainstream media?
He streams his show at wfan.com. The best time to listen is at 1pm or 5pm EST when Francesa does his monologues.
