Hoboken411 and Beth Mason in bed on hospital sale big lie
With the hospital sale’s enormous moving parts aligned again for its sale and a close set for tomorrow, Councilwoman Beth Mason is continuing her propaganda war claiming credit for a sale she’s worked to undermine since January.
Yesterday readers sent us the Hoboken411 story, one which MSV won’t dignify as it’s strewn with more lies from beginning to end than an old edition of Pravda circa 1982.
The screed is notable for the obvious anger it lashes out against the mayor, her husband, and even Director of Transportation and Parking Ian Sacs.
Another Beth Mason commercial looks to have been already in the can but with the public pressure mounted on MORTe over the weekend, she never got to air it. MSV believes Hoboken411, Beth Mason’s favored place for her online political operations became the dumping ground so it wasn’t wasted entirely. (MSV does not expect any reply to such an inquiry to Beth Mason as she routinely declines to answer questions.)
The self-proclaimed council minority “agreement” claimed to have obtained program concessions from Holdco prompting their reversal to vote in favor of the parking agreement last Sunday.
Leading into the critical vote, MORTe never stated any program concessions were required to obtain their support on any aspect of the hospital’s sale and never during discussion of the parking agreement.
In the MSV exclusive video above, the new hospital CEO clearly speaks in the HUMC press conference about several programs including a sports medicine practice Holdco is planning to implement after the sale. His comments come just a little more than one minute into the Q&A. This video was taken back in early October.
Beth Mason and her MORTe allies failed to cover their tracks with the Big Lie launched Sunday. This is ironclad video evidence MORTe’s claims of program concessions including the sports medicine program are falsified. Right after the conclusion of the vote Sunday, one Hospital Authority member stated the programs were already negotiated into the sale and included the sport medicine practice stated in the video.
MSV doesn’t hold exclusive evidence of the council minority’s falsified claim.
Similar evidence also appeared previously in an October 6th, Star Ledger story:
