New York Daily News blasts Mayor Emanuel after op-ed

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was on the cover of a New York newspaper Tuesday morning, but he's not getting any praise.

The headline of the New York Daily News reads, "DUMB TRACK MIND."

It's in reference to the mayor's op-ed in the New York Times about why public transportation in Chicago is better than in New York.

The Daily News article says, "at least our riders don't get shot on the way home," in reference to Chicago's murder rate.

ABC7 has reached out to the mayor's office for comment.
