Inside City Hall - "Full Scale Assault on the City's Community College System" (1998)

This video features a broadcast of NY1's Inside City Hall from 1998 that focuses on the then-newly released preliminary budget for the university. As was consistent through much of Giuliani's mayorality in the 1990s, many of his criticisms of the CUNY system focused on its entrance standards and the remediation programs offered by the university. With these two points in mind, his plan offered a blistering critique of the CUNY system. In addition to clips featuring responses from numerous individuals, sit-down interviews feature Randy Mastro, deputy mayor of NYC, and Ed Koch, former NYC mayor.
