A reader emailed that Hoboken411 found a way to edit the video of yesterday’s event to fit his “editorial” bias. Most of his video content is actually of people outside, including the old pro-Cammarano umbrella faction that has now apparently adopted Councilwoman Mason. Today’s earlier exclusive was posted before knowledge about Hobo411’s director “cut.” That’s what we’d call irony.
People have taken notice of the strange positions Hoboken411 takes. For example, he frequently holds Glen Beck up as someone worth viewing, but at the same time he is a ruthless censor and bans people who don’t follow the party line on the website. He supported the Real Results Republicans but now he is standing with the protestors against Gov. Chris Christie’s proposals although he doesn’t actually show much content on what the Governor discussed. In fact the content he’s most interested in posting reveals certain voices he finds himself aligned. They can be seen in the most recent City Council meeting on something they ardently agree:
A Beth Mason for Mayor t-shirt makes its appearance at the last City Council meeting
(Note the slogan “Real Reform Lower Taxes”)
Apparently it’s upsetting enough that Gov. Christie and Mayor Zimmer have gone beyond partisan lines to work together against the almost dozen billion dollar deficit the state faces. Hoboken of course along with other municipalities can hardly expect stable let alone greater funding from the state under the circumstances. It must be driving the poor guy insane. Anyone who saw him yesterday would know why.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
The invite list: the breakdown on the invitations according to the mayor’s office were as follows: Republicans got 20, Democrats got 20, other community groups got 10, others that requested to attend in advance of the event were added to the list for a total of 130 not including a list from the Governor’s office.
This should dispel some of the misinformation spread (already) on the attendees yesterday.
