New York Press Club blasts Gov. Christie’s blacklist tactic

The New York Press Club is publicly criticizing Gov. Chris Christie and his staff for blacklisting New Jersey Watchdog.

The journalists’ organization “expresses its outrage over the Christie Administration’s apparent ‘blacklisting’ of New Jersey Watchdog, in an effort to prevent the news outlet from receiving press advisories and official announcements from the governor’s office,” said Press Club president Larry Seary.

The governor and his staff have offered no explanation for excluding the investigative news site from official communications.
