In any White House bid, Christie is sure to be out at plate

Englewood Hospital and Medical Center held its annual Employee Appreciation Picnic for workers, volunteers and medical staff on Wednesday.
Englewood firefighters also were invited to the picnic, judging from the three fire engines parked across the street, and fire personnel on the field.


Most experts, pollsters and pundits are dismissing Governor Christie's bid for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

But Editor Martin Gottlieb of The Record and Columnist Charles Stile aren't convinced, and continue to bombard readers with endless copy on the GOP bully's political image in the early primary states (A-1).

Today, a front page photo showing Christie throwng a ball at a Yankee Stadium softball game doesn't say whether he was booed.

Or, why he wasn't at a fundraiser for the families of slain police officers and state troopers in New Jersey.


Two corrections appear on A-2 today, but The Record didn't bother fixing Road Warrior John Cichowski's latest screw-up.

On Wednesday, the clueless columnist gave the wrong intersection for where a woman's SUV knocked down a Leonia crossing guard on May 27.

That major error is the latest of literally hundreds of mistakes the veteran reporter has made since he began writing the Road Warrior column in September 2003.

Today, his column reports on efforts to stop accidents that cause traumatic brain injuries, suggesting it is too late to prevent his (L-1).

Cichowski's numerous errors -- and only an occasional correction -- also suggests fact-checking, and editing checks and balances have completely broken down.

For that, readers can blame local Assignment Editors Deirdre Sykes and Dan Sforza, and six-figure Production Editor Liz Houlton, absentee supervisor of the news and copy desks.
