Newark Star-Ledger Regrets Endorsing Chris Christie

Chris Christie’s 2014 is off to a rough start. He has already been accused of being involved in more than enough political scandals, but now The Newark Star-Ledger, which had endorsed Christie for governor, has announced that it “regrets” supporting him.

Tom Moran, editor of the Star-Ledger’s editorial page, wrote today that the paper “blew” its endorsement. Moran explained that the paper knew Christie was a political ruffian, but they didn’t think he was this bad:

Yes, we knew Christie was a bully. But we didn’t know his crew was crazy enough to put people’s lives at risk in Fort Lee as a means to pressure the mayor.

New York Daily News Gets Printed with Help from New York Times, Newsday, Others

The New York Daily News got it bad when Hurricane Sandy came to visit. Its offices flooded and a printing plant in New Jersey was left without power. Luckily for the Daily News, it has some unlikely friends.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Daily News is being printed with the help of The New York Times, Newsday, the Newark Star-Ledger, the Bergen Record and the Hartford Courant. The AP and Jewish Week have also provided office space to Daily News staffers.

With the help of the otherwise rivals, the Daily News was able to print its regular edition and some of its other commercial printing work. “The outreach by our comrades has been amazing,” said the Daily News’ president and CEO, Bill Holiber.

This is why we love New York.
