"Mayoral hopeful Bill de Blasio
has had three different legal names, court records show"
- New York Daily News

"...curious twist,
the application said the required legal notice disclosing the name change would be published in the weekly Boston Phoenix,
and not in a New York City newspaper.
In contrast, the legal notice of the 1983 name change was published in the New York Law Journal."
"...from 1995 to 2001,
the now-candidate for mayor was registered with the city Board of Elections as Bill de Blasio and voted 10 times under that name,
even though he had not yet petitioned the court to change his name from Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm."

Thought I would share some history of our #Press and perhaps some of the ppl behind it so we can understand how it became #FakeNews "The first American press was the partisan press, underwritten and dictated by the political parties."
"The third wave in American journalism—that of the foundation press—may be taking form now thanks to Bay Area billionaires Herbert and Marion Sandler. Waving $10 million that they promise to replenish annually"
"The Sandlers have founded the nonprofit ProPublica to produce investigative journalism. (Usual suspect the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is also chipping in some money to the ProPublica kitty, as are the Atlantic Philanthropies and the JEHT Foundation.)"
