Mayor Gavin Newsom, who called KGO-TV reporter Dan Noyes a “jerk” on camera in April, is complaining about the reporter again, telling the SF Examiner: “Any objective observer will agree that this particular reporter has hardly been acting appropriately.” Newsom is objecting to a request Noyes made for documents that would show whether the city is prepared for a disaster. Noyes and producer Beth Rimbey have filed a complaint against Newsom’s Office of Communications and Office of Emergency Services, claiming the two departments are withholding the documents in violation of open records laws. Newsom says the station has asked for an excessive amount of infomation, and that the documents must be kept secret for security reasons. [PPC April 23: ‘Mr. Mayor, did you just call me a jerk?’]
