January 1, NYC Mayor Blames Media for Crime Fears as Polling Numbers Reveal Alarming Concern



In the face of rising concerns about crime, New York City Mayor Eric Adams has pointed fingers at the media, blaming them for stirring up fear among the city’s residents.

This reaction comes on the back of a recent Siena College poll showing an overwhelming number of residents worried about falling victim to a crime.

According to the poll, a striking 61% of New York state residents are very (21%) or somewhat (40%) concerned that they will be the next victim of a crime.

The situation in the city is even grimmer, with 70% of its denizens worried about crime, with 30% being very worried and 40% being somewhat worried.

Moreover, 87% of New Yorkers perceive crime as a very serious or somewhat serious problem.

Reacting to these statistics, Mayor Adams seemed to suggest that it was the media’s portrayal of crime that was responsible.

“Citizens start their day picking up the news, the morning papers … and they see some of the most horrific events that may happen throughout the previous day,” he told local outlet WNYW.

“Plays on your psyche!” he added.

Addressing these concerns, Adams said, “We know it’s going to take time.”

“My mission is to move people from what they felt to what they’re feeling. And no one can take away the fact this city is humming.”

In contrast to the mayor’s optimistic view, however, the city’s crime problems were made evident again when an unhinged man wielding a large blade attacked a group of Romanian street performers, prompting further concerns among citizens.

In a worrying sign of how deeply these concerns have permeated the populace, the poll also revealed that nearly one in 10 New Yorkers reported being assaulted or burgled in the last year, with 40% of citizens having spent at least $100 on personal protection goods.

Additionally, almost a quarter of the population (24%) have purchased a professionally monitored home security system.

Despite these grim realities, the NYPD remains optimistic.

The acting commissioner, Edward Caban, pointed to progress in the NYPD’s fight against violence and disorder heading into the summer months, stating, “As we look back on the month of June [2023] and the first half of the year, we can see already progress.”

    Hey New Yorkers, want to get rid of crime?! GET rid of your mayor and your governor! Elect someone that’s NOT a democrat or some socialist thinking liberal /democrat. Pick someone that cares about getting tough on crimes and criminals!

    When discussing the media, the more important factor in my opinion is social media. Social media is immediate. Social media posts are often statements made in haste, in the heat of the moment. These statements may not have all the facts of a particular circumstance. People tend to react immediately to social media posts without asking for more information. That is the main problem I see in the media. I am a teacher, and I constantly remind my students not to respond immediately to social media posts. Wait for more information.

    If you were to really look at the numbers, you might find that he’s partially correct. Much much less than 1% of New York’s millions of citizens are ever involved in a violent crime. The media (who almost all are for banning firearms) has almost half the population thinking that they are at great risk. More weapons in the hands of those not properly trained and educated regarding the law, will ultimately result in tragedies which will stoke the anti-Second Amendment fire.

    Actually he should look no further than the voting public that put him and others of his political ilk in office. Shallow, uninformed, special interest, rabid partisan voting is the root cause of the countries problems.
