Chris Christie’s press spokesman has come out and attacked MSNBC in a statement to Business Insider. Colin Reed noted the fake attack ad that Lawrence O’Donnell produced and aired on his ten o’clock show. Some critics have compared the attack ad to the anti-President Obama spot which aired on Fox and Friends last year. Reed, however, did not bring up Morning Joe, who’s hosts have proclaimed their admiration for Christie and admitted that they text him.
Read the statement, via Business Insider:
“MSNBC is a partisan network that has been openly hostile to Governor Christie and almost gleeful in their efforts attacking him, even taking the unprecedented step of producing and airing a nearly three-minute attack ad against him this week. Governor Christie and his entire administration have been helping Hoboken get the help they need after Sandy, with the city already having been approved for nearly $70 million dollars in federal aid and is targeted to get even more when the Obama Administration approves the next rounds of funding. The Governor and Mayor Zimmer have had a productive relationship, with Mayor Zimmer even recently saying she’s ‘very glad’ he’s been our Governor. It’s very clear partisan politics are at play here as Democratic mayors with a political axe to grind come out of the woodwork and try to get their faces on television.”
