NY1 has obtained another set of emails sent by former Schools Chancellor Cathie Black during her short time in office.

They were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and many of them are related to her difficult relationship with the media.

On November 23, 2010, soon after Bloomberg announced her appointment, she took issue with a New York Post article.

Black sent an email to the Department of Education's communications director, saying that she felt Mayor Michael Bloomberg treated her unfairly.

She says, "Frankly, this sucks, and I cannot imagine a more poorly thought out decision on MB side."

Following an appeals court decision, the city released a number of messages between the mayor's office and Black.

Black resigned in April 2011 after four tumultuous months in office.
