Mayor Bloomberg today unleashed an attack on The New York Times, accusing the paper of hypocrisy for publishing an editorial against the NYPD’s stop and frisk policy days after the “paper of record” didn’t bother covering of the murder of a black teenager.

“Last week, a Bronx resident named Alphonza Bryant was shot and killed while standing with friends near his home. He was 17. Like most murder victims in our city, he was a minority,” a frustrated Bloomberg told NYPD brass during an address at 1 Police Plaza.

“He was just a victim of too many guns on our streets. But after his murder … there was not even a mention of his murder in our paper of record, the New York Times. All the news that’s fit to print did not include the murder of a 17-year-old Alphonza Bryant.”
