Editors hide bad news for Christie

Governor Christie doubts Katie Couric knows anything about public opinion.

Two major stories about Governor Christie appear in The Record today (A-1 and A-7), but the editors were careful to avoid any mention of major opposition to the war against public workers being waged in New Jersey, Wisconsin and other states.

The New York Times/CBS News poll found a majority opposes weakening bargaining rights for public workers. A summary on the Times' Web site reported:

"As labor battles erupt in state capitals around the nation, a majority of Americans say they oppose efforts to weaken the collective bargaining rights of public employee unions and are also against cutting the pay and benefits of public workers to reduce state budget deficits."

The poll was reported by the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric on Monday night, and Christie was asked about the poll results. He accused the media of wording the poll questions to get the results they wanted to keep what he called an entertaining story alive.

He also said he has a better idea of public opinion than Couric, and if that's not the case, the CBS News anchor should run for governor of New Jersey. Click on the following link to see a video of his comments:

Today's front page

A big photo of a murder suspect on Page 1 today carries this heading: "FIRST GLANCE AT SLAYING SUSPECT," a puzzling choice given that his photo also appeared on the front page Sunday and Monday.

Cookie monsters

There is no truth to the rumor that Christie, former Food Editor Bill Pitcher and Project Editor Tim Nostrand are vying for the job of spokesman for Fatboy Cookies (Better Living, F-1).
