Christie and newspapers

There have been times when the governor makes fun of the press. One hopes he doesn’t mean it, because the truth is that Chris Christie has gotten very favorable news coverage dating back to his days as U.S. Attorney … After all, it was the press that created this image of Christie as the “Crime-fighting U.S. Attorney” standing up for truth, justice and the American Way.

That said, he referred to newspaper headlines more than once in his State of the State speech today. Moreover, a release from the governor’s office noted that Christie was on the front page of the Ledger more than 250 times last year, or something like that.

It’s comforting that someone still cares enough about the dying industry of newspapers to keep track of how many times when shows up on the front page.
