Disturbing and Offensive

After New York City's first lady Chirlane McCray talked about her struggles as a new mom in an interview with New York Magazine, two city tabloids ran stories depicting her as "a bad mom" and not wanting to be a mom. "I think both the Post and the Daily News owe Chirlane an apology," responded  Mayor Bill de Blasio. "I think they owe all of us an apology for absolutely misrepresenting what she said and for caricaturing a reality that so many women face."
