Bill de Blasio has been mayor for 14 months now. Is his honeymoon with the press over? More accurately, did his honeymoon with the press last beyond his second week in office?

CapitalNY’s Dana Rubinstein and Chris Smith of New York magazine join me in tonight’s episode of Straight Up!, the Brooklyn Independent Media reporters’ roundtable filmed at The Emerson Bar in Clinton Hill. We discuss how de Blasio has handled the press, how the press has handled him and how social media has reshaped coverage of City Hall.

Tune in at 7 p.m. tonight or again on Thursday at TW 756, Cablevison 70 or Verizon 46. Or watch the episode below:
