Governor Christie is being counted out as the GOP presidential nominee in 2016 by everyone but The Record of Woodland Park.
Running one Page 1 column after another on how he is doing in Iowa, New Hampshire or some other state with an early primary has alienated North Jersey readers.
Their eyes roll just at the sight of Staff Writer Charles Stile's outdated thumbnail photo (A-1).
Political satirist Bill Maher not only has stopped telling fat jokes about Christie he didn't even mention the GOP bully on Friday night's "Real Time with Bill Maher" when discussing the recent GOP debate.
The local-news section is so weak some desperate editor had to run the arrest of two New York State men with 400 bags of heroin on the front today (L-1).
Franklin Lakes seeking an interim trustee also is deemed big news (L-1).
Meanwhile, I can't recall a single story about school board members in Hackensack whose budget has grown to exceed the city's own.
What's the point of a new column by Travel Editor Jill Schensul on the Better Living front (BL-1)?
Today, she lists the most expensive travel destinations in the world. Gee-whiz.
Why not discuss two great cities, Montreal and Toronto, where a strong U.S. dollar means Americans get 20% to 25% off of everything they purchase -- from hotel rooms to concerts to lunches in fine-dining restaurants?
If Schensul's column is supposed to help travelers get the most from their money, the joke is on readers.
