Did the Post Make Paladino’s 10-Year-Old Daughter Cry?

By

The stunning argument between veteran Post reporter Fred Dicker and gubernatorial candidate Carl "I'll take you out" Paladino last night was undoubtedly the best thing captured on video since this thing earlier in the day. But it was a little blurry, recorded as it was on a camera phone. So here's a more high-quality version courtesy of CBS. By the way, Paladino's spokesman explained to the AP why Paladino was so upset with Dicker:


Paladino spokesman Michael Caputo said afterward that a Post photographer recently put the lens of a camera against the daughter's bedroom window while she was practicing for a school dance and she has had bouts of crying and has been calling her father every day since.

On Fox News this morning, Dicker said, "I don't know if that's true or not, I wasn't there, I'm not familiar with it." If it is true, we can see how that would scare a little girl, and upset her father, but it's still unclear why it has anything to do with accusing Andrew Cuomo of having an affair without offering up any evidence for it.
