One gal's musings on the Hoboken political scene
I SO hope Anonymoud submits that comment to the HR as a letter to the editor. Heck, I'd be willing to do it for him/her! Slam, hits the nail firmly on so many heads. A shame these people get away with calling themselves journalists, I always laugh so hard each year when they publish a story about all the local "excellence in journalism" awards they win, what a (sad) joke.
I know from past experience, that they will not post anonymous letters to the editor unless you work for the city or the person you are speaking about.I tried to submit something about my personal observations of the Russo's anonymously, they would not do it. Given some of the stories about Michael Russo's brothers, I didn't want to post it with my name.
I have seen anonymous letters in the Hoboken Reporter many times
That might be, but they would not post mine anonymously unless I was someone that might lose my job for city job for speaking against Russo.But we know about the Hudson Reporters journalist ethics.
ETHICS ?No one in their right mind would accused the Hoboken Reporter of having ethics.I wouldn't worry too much what is printed in the Hoboken Reporter they are a throwaway and if you walk around Hoboken you can see most people do just that without ever opening it when they find it on their door step.
You'd do well to think of the Hoboken Reporter as the new Hoboken 411.Are they are completely driven by a political agenda? Check.Is Beth the beneficiary of the agenda? Check.Will they put your posts in moderation if they trigger a political switch? Check.Should you consider your logon information unsafe and prone to being shared with others for political reasons? Check.
I thought Politicker did a much better job at covering the story.
Bajardi posted some inflammatory stuff on the nj.com Hoboken forum about Stan Grossbard's diamond business under the screen names Wakeup07030 and MarkLower.
Oh no, that's not possible. He said he's Jewish. We all know he wouldn't lie... well about everything? Well, he may be small but he is one BIG liar!
Hoboken Reporter writes articles that Advertisers control. a page 3 story on some window treatment hack and on page 5 a big ad from the same guy. If he gets a story for that ad imagine Beth has bought years of lies, watered down stories and Finboy ghost written tripe
While I agree with the sentiment about the Hoboken Reporter, but a business lasting sixteen years in Hoboken is certainly not a hack.
HR is not a hack publication. But it has some ethical issues
Oh please. The HR is a TOTAL hack publication, little more than a real estate newsletter. It has lasted 16 years because it's got no competition n town and the owners don't care if it loses money. Get real.
Speaking of which...got to love the Hoboken Reporter's lengthy, gushing cover story today about the new film based on a book by "Hoboken author" Caren Lissner. Obviously following time-honored journalistic rules of transparency, they wait until the 29th paragraph on the continuation of the story on the last page to mention that Caren Lissner is the same Caren Matzner who is editor of...wait for it...the Hoboken Reporter! Well, I'll be dang! Golly gosh, what a coincidence!! Is it any wonder why the HR has won so many awards for journalistic credibility, objectivity and transparency?I guess "Hoboken author" is the same sort of smokescreen description as "Hoboken couple", another HR classic.
