Eddie Perez controversy tops the Sunday local talk shows


Hartford's Mayor Eddie Perez has been taking a well-deserved beating in the press this week over his his boneheaded decision to hire a Hartford contractor, who did millions of dollars of city work, to renovate portions of his house.

Of all the shows, Beyond the Headlines really outlined the stupidity behind the latest of Perez's stumbles with Hartford Courant Kevin Rennie firing the biggest shots.
