610 WIP boss Marc Rayfield says that he was "misquoted throughout" the April Philly Sport magazine article in which he dissed 97.5 The Fanatic, which we reported on in yesterday's column.
"Some of the quotes are way off and don't even resemble what I said, and some were simply taken out of context . . . I do, however, enjoy reading fiction as well as op-ed, and that's largely what Ted's article was," Rayfield said of the article written by the mag's publisher, Ted Beitchman.
Beitchman was incredulous yesterday afternoon when told of Rayfield's remarks. "He's sore because he looks bad and the station looks bad, and they're losing their franchise," Beitchman said.
"He got the magazine a week ago. If he had a problem with something I wrote why the f--- didn't he tell me? He's a weasel," shot Beitchman, who said he "absolutely" stands by his reporting. He said he would be happy to share his notes with Rayfield.
