Star Ledger Censors Chris Christie Smackdown Video

If anyone is looking for work, I think the Star Ledger Censor Department has some openings.

I decided to check my Chris Christie post (found by clicking here) from the other day to make sure the video link was still working, and unfortunately it is not.

As predicted, the Star Ledger is running around the internet using copyright infringement to smack this video right out of cyberspace.

This would be more understandable if they just wanted people to link to their site for the video but unfortunately, they don’t have the video on their site.

More disturbing is the fact that this video looks like your standard press conference video with reporters from many news organizations asking questions, but somehow, the Star Ledger gets to claim copyright infringement on anyone who shows it because they don’t want one question that their reporter asked to be circulated on the net? What?!

I hope they have a full-time staff working on it, because I am sure we’ll keep finding new ways to link to it no matter what they do.

Hat tip to freerepublic.com for providing three links that are currently (as of today) still working for this video. The links can be found here, here and here.

Again, no promises on how long those videos don’t get smacked down by the Star Ledger Censor Gestapo’s, but until then…enjoy.

UPDATE Just Now: A Google search that led to a Hannity page that led to a comment that led to this link shows where the “legal” video is. The commenter made a claim that somehow this NJ.com page is the “allowed” page for this video and anyone getting upset about the Star Ledger censorship is being sensationalist. Unfortunately, I can’t prove his position. It looks like NJ.com is somehow associated with six newspapers including the Star Ledger, but I have no idea who owns what, or if NJ.com is a separate entity so I can not confirm that this is a Star Ledger owned business entity or just a website that is associated with several NJ newspapers. Perhaps the fact they are still showing it supports the comment, but why then wouldn’t the copyright infringement be from NJ.com and not the Star Ledger?

The title of the page is, “The Star-Ledger Videos.” Anyway, my search for the non-copyright-infringed video link continues. I also emailed NJ.com to see what their relationship is with the Star Ledger. We’ll see and I’ll post it. Until then, I have to seriously wonder why the Star Ledger is trying so hard to keep this video out of circulation.

UPDATE 5/19/10: NJ.com responded to my email and stated that they are only affiliated with the Star Ledger but both NJ.com and the Star Ledger are owned by the same parent company. Ah HA! Now it makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is why the Star Ledger does not want this video smacking down one of their reporters floating around out there? Or does it? Hmmmmmm….

  1. NJ.com banned my user name “Summit_NJ” as it appears I made one too many comments opposing their EDITORIAL page! Disagree with their editors and your posting credentials get yanked. Freedom of speech, my foot.
