As if we didn't need proof that most media is controlled by the government, all at once, 6 New Jersey news papers all come out with big editorials slamming Christie, and telling him to resign as governor.
www.usatoday.com...

Funny this big effort wasn't put forth BEFORE he endorsed Donald Trump, nope they scrambled to put it together after. So, was it a collaboration between all the papers on their own, or an order sent to all of them from their higher power? The American Gestapo controlling the media is really foaming at the mouth to get rid of Donald Trump.

Is it possible that someone who is capable of destroying them can become president? It's beginning to look that way. I hope Christie's a ride or die guy, and Donald is Willing to take him Along for that ride, because he's in it now.

They are all owned by Gannett which has been critical of Christie for some time.

I think the OP is right here. It doesn't matter if Gannett have been critical of Christie for some time. A coordinated hit piece across six editorials along with a distinct change of attitude towards across the MSM outlets tells a pretty obvious story. To be fair though, I think it's been known for some time that the MSM is just a mouth piece for the corporations that own the political class.

He says the government runs them, you say the corporations. Gannett has a noticeable liberal spin with their editorials in the New Jersey papers. The simpler answer is they do not like him or Trump.

Being as how you are in close proximity to Christy, I thought he was pretty well an establishment puppet with a big mouth. His snuggling up to Trump seems strange. From here, it looks like he is kissing Trumps ass, hoping for a VP slot.

But, if Christy is part of the machine, his closeness to Trump seems quite out of place, unless.......there is a plan. I would think Trump should stay clear of any grassy knolls should he pick Fat Boy as his VP.

We have term limits for governor here in New Jersey so Christie, in my opinion, is angling for a cabinet position in Trump's administration. It is not a huge ideological move for Christie as he is not very conservative for a Republican (like Trump) and the two of them are very much aligned on many topics.

Oh please. The media created and continuously perpetuates the Trump phenomenon. The ones controlling the media are merely trying to ensure that no "real" GOP candidate wins the White House, and it's working quite well. Trump does not and has never wanted to actually be President, just wants the attention and economic perks of being forced in front of everyone's face.

Christie is out for one thing: Christie.

The people of NJ hate him. He’s got the lowest rating of any NJ governor in the history of polling.


He’s transparently a self-centered person who the people of NJ see through.

Of course he’s angling for VP or Attorney General.

They are admittedly bad but we have had worse.

I don't believe the govt (if you, for the sake of argument, consider them simply as elected officials) run anything. They are there to implement. When you spot something that seems coordinated it's correct to question it.

Really? The news has turned into Trump TV (CNN, FOX, MSNBC). That's all they talk about, turn it on now or wait 5 hours, you'll hear his name 24/7!

He isn't getting any economic perks so far, the only one funding his own campaign (for now) and U.S. President makes about $400,000. An amount that would be laughable to billionaire Trump, and NOT earned easily. Someone like Rubio would be chomping at the bit for that salary, not Trump

As I posted on another thread, the media are portraying Trump as a Grand Wizard of the KKK, hating women, a mob boss, attacks old granny's and bulldozers all their houses across the country, isn't very presidential, is really stupid despite his billions and degrees, can't possibly get more than 35%, is hated by everyone except white supremicists and stupid people, loves Mussolini, is going to make David Duke the VP, deport every foreigner, start a nuclear war and will likely do what Hitler did.... oh and he is only running to get Hillary elected as part of a massive Clinton conspiracy.

If you call that perpetuating the Trump phenomenon, fair enough, but I call it a sustained effort to destroy him. THAT is why he has so much airtime.

Either way, Gannett was never fond of Christie so these editorials should not surprise anyone.

Very well said! Airtime does not mean good airtime. They are running in circles like chickens with their heads cut off trying to slander. And, sure Christie along with every person in any political position has been put down, but this big collaboration to force him to resign is pretty intense.

Agreeing with OP, the pro-Hillary and anti-Trump propaganda on media has gone up like 10-fold.

That means, Trump must be into something darn darn good.

Exactly
Hillary is a proven criminal, which they won't even mention anymore. But, that doesn't stop them from constantly saying "maybe" Trump is a criminal, if we could just see those mob connections on his taxes!!!"
