The Read: What they're saying about WNY

Mark Grisanti, Mark Grisanti and Mark Grisanti. The casino incident involving the state senator got national and even international coverage and was a big part of this week's political headlines. Here's a look at what others said about it this week:

HuffPost’s New York editor-at-large writes, “For an unremarkable freshman state senator, Grisanti has a lot of statewide, even nation-wide, significance.” -- Casino Brawl Business as Usual for New York State Legislature, Feb. 16

Seneca Nation President Robert Odawi Porter writes in Indian Country Today in response to the Grisanti episode that “several media outlets” are “reverting to salacious stereotypes” in their coverage of the Grisanti story with headlines “such as, ‘Indians on the Warpath’ and ‘Indian Whomp-‘em,’ and peppering their stories with other unseemly descriptions of my people.” -- Seneca President Robert Odawi Porter Comments on Casino Incident, Feb. 17

At Capitol Confidential, the Albany Times Union's Capitol Bureau Chief Casey Seiler writes about changes in Porter's public statements the day after the incident. "When an update to the News’ story revealed that the incident had resulted in Maria Grisanti heading to the hospital on Saturday for an MRI and other treatment, Porter decided a slightly more, um, sympathetic tone might be in order."-- Seneca leader: Uh, what I meant to say was…, Feb. 11

At City & State, Grisanti was named one of this week's "losers" in their "Winners & Losers" feature. "It might be too muddy to end up hurting his 2012 re-election effort –- but it hardly helps," the blog said of the situation. -- Winners & Losers, Feb. 17
