Forget loyalty -- the guy's a liar


By Tim Redmond

Randy Shaw is calling on the mayor to fire Press Secretary Peter Ragone, saying that Ragone lacks loyalty. Maybe so, although I still think there's a lot more spin going on here than meets the eye.

But the bigger issue that Shaw entirely misses is this: Peter Ragone lies to the press. Nobody is going to trust him any more, so he can't do his job. That's the problem.
