Who Christie Doesn’t Care About

Though he didn’t use those exact words.


Nationally there is the White House Correspondents dinner where politicians and those who cover them get to poke fun at each other. This is likely C-Span’s highest rated program and is covered widely in the mass media.

New Jersey has it’s own version called the New Jersey Legislative Correspondent’s Club annual show.  It was held last night and only one media outlet seems to have covered it.

Below are youtubes from prior years to give you the flavor and then what Chris Christie was reported to have said at this year’s event.


The Morning Briefing reported that last night:

After Christie sat through the media’s silly skits mocking him for everything from Bridgegate to his presidential aspirations, the governor fired back using language normally reserved for a late-night conversation with confidants in a back room scrubbed of recording devices.

In years past, Christie’s staff always prepared a humorous video of the governor (one year with then-Newark Mayor Cory Booker). But this year, Christie did not have a video and said he would not make excuses.

“The truth is we don’t give a shit about this or any of you,” Christie told the Statehouse press corps.

Christie started his tirade against the president of the Legislative Correspondent’s Club, Claude Brodesser-Akner of NJ.com, refusing to say his last name. “Not because I can’t pronounce French names, but again because I don’t give a shit.”

Christie said he loved being critiqued by a reporter whose journalistic background is from that “extraordinary” news magazine,TMZ.

“The fact that you have to start off by apologizing to me for their use of a surreptitious iPhone video of me with an ice cream cone yelling at a guy on the boardwalk tells you everything you need to know about the core of his journalistic background,” Christie said.

“This is a guy who says he doesn’t know what I’m doing every day,” Christie said of Brodesser-Akner. “Then just get the fuck away from me. Every time I turn the corner in New Hampshire, you and that beard are there. So here’s my suggestion: open your eyes, clean the shit out of your ears and pay attention.”

    TL and devout followers; individuals presenting a right wing conservative perspective based on half-truths and lies.

    TL continual posts repetitive misinformation citing sources with extreme ideology. Yet sumarial dismisses other posts with conflicting opinions and sources.

    Specifically, purposely misstated the tax status of public pensions in the following post; https://burypensions.wordpress.com/2015/05/22/christie-curses-out-nj-media/#comments When called to task tried to double talk their way out of it. Standard operating procedure for most of their commentary.

    Fair and equal for all is the mantra. Fair enough, but not when I suggest Federal workers and members of our beloved Armed Forces be part of the bigger conversation. The response, they’re different. But why, because they risk their lives like first responders at home. Their DBP are paid with Federal tax dollars as opposed to State or Local. Everyone knew the job risks when they accepted employment. But they also knew what their salary, pension, and benefits were supposed to be.

    To blame and demonize public workers for the current situation is unfair and untrue. Do politicians make “deals” with unions that don’t always have the taxpayers best interest? I think everyone knows the answer to that is yes. But politicians are always making “deals” it’s what they do. Just ask the various segment market corporations; defense spending (lucrative contracts), farming (subsidies) and the list goes on and on.

    Your bully tactics and demeaning attitude only motivate me more to push back your parties ridiculous vision for NJ and America. Yes I’m sure John knows all of our IP address, so you and your business name can be exposed as well.

    The purpose of continually posting this comment is to allow the counterpoint perspective to be heard. I will no longer personally engage your comments tit for tat.
