As previously reported, Hillary Clinton might be opening her campaign office in Brooklyn Heights. That is if she decided to run for president and if she chooses One Pierrepont Plaza (one of the rumored locations) and not MetroTech (the other rumored HQ). Why? Oh, you know the answer:
METROTECH IS NOT IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS.
Now this slight error would be all fine and dandy if the media wasn’t actively perpetuating this misconception. Behold:
New York Times: Mrs. Clinton’s aides are looking at the Metro Tech complex in Brooklyn Heights, two people with knowledge of the plans said.
NY Magazine: Once Hillary Clinton gets around to officially announcing that she’s running for president, she’s going to need a campaign headquarters — and she’s said to be quite interested in Brooklyn Heights. Consider it Mayor de Blasio’s consolation prize for losing the DNC to Philly.
“Clinton and her team … are nearing a deal for office space at the MetroTech complex in Brooklyn.
Heck, we’ll give New York Magazine a pass since they’re just lucky to still have the lights on. But the NEW YORK TIMES? Come on sheeple!
For the record, Mrs. Clinton (and journalists) Metro Tech is in Downtown Brooklyn.
