Liberal blogger who was there says Gawker’s Christie train story is “shit”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

When it rains it pours…

The gossip blog Gawker kicked a politically hobbled Chris Christie while he was down (and apparently running late) on Sunday, Save Jerseyans, claiming the Governor was ejected from Amtrak’s silent or quiet car for “screaming” on his cell phone based on an alleged eyewitness account. The Governor’s spokeswoman later apologized via Huffpo on his behalf.

But did he even need to apologize?

Liberal blogger Katie Klabusich says she was there, too, and that Gawker‘s report was waaaay off base:

She reports the chain of events very, very differently, and given what we all know about Amtrak, it’s not an incredible account:

Klabusich’s conclusion??

Draw your own conclusions.

But either way… it’s amazing what passes for news these days, right?

The Emailgate hearing fetched snarky (and sloppy) coverage but the media made up its mind a long time ago that Chris Christie is a bully so even a liberal blogger’s conflicting account won’t change this story now that it’s out of the box.
