Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom clashed with CBS 5 reporter Hank Plante this week when he was asked about him avoiding the press and missing some public events since he dropped his gubernatorial bid last month.

An irritated Newsom responded that he'd been working hard, while Plante repeatedly confronted him with media criticism of him.

The mayor responded, "I don't read the press. It is comical some of the things that have been written. It's beyond laughable. Damaging? No. I think only to the credibility of some of the news organizations that have written it. And to the extent that I care? I don't."
