Mayor Ford slams media on his radio show

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford lashed out at the media Sunday, saying he half-expects to wake up to reporters spying on him.
During the season premiere of his weekly radio show on Newstalk 1010, Ford and his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, complained they’ve been the target of reporters with an axe to grind.
“I rolled onto the bed on one side and thought the media would be underneath the bed, or looking in our windows,” the mayor said.
“They’re literally camped out three hours outside (football) practice and the kids are like, this is ridiculous. Anything good about Rob Ford, they’re not going to write about that.”
The Fords hammered newspaper coverage of the recent controversy surrounding accusations the mayor used city resources to run his charity football team and allegations he broke city hall’s conflict of interest rules.
“When you don’t have any credibility in some of the stories, ... they sit on their asses instead of looking into the story,” Councillor Ford said.
“They won’t stop. They don’t believe in democracy. They won’t stop because they don’t think you should have been elected. You’re saving hundreds of millions of dollars.”
