Duly Quoted: Adrienne Batra

“In my last job, rarely a day went by at City Hall when you didn’t hear someone say ‘I read it in the Sun.’ I look forward to contributing to the Sun and putting my own stamp on the Comment section.”

—Adrienne Batra, Rob Ford’s former press secretary, in her first column for the Toronto Sun‘s Comment section, which she is now the editor of. Elsewhere in the column, she says, “I won’t be an apologist for the current municipal administration, but I will rigorously support its desire to reduce the burden on taxpayers.” We’ll see!

    “…I read it in the Sun because that’s the only paper that Ford isn’t pissed with!”

    I imagine she has a red phone under glass, just like Commissioner Gordon did in the Batman TV series, that connects to Ford’s office.

    Adrienne doesn’t mention the laughing that inevitably frames such an admission.
