UhOh..NJTV showed cartoon instead of Christie....
TRENTON Many local and national TV stations broadcasted Gov. Chris Christies Big Decision today, but NJTV wasnt one of them. Instead, the new operator of the states public TV network stuck with "Angelina Ballerina" and the rest of its regular lineup.

And that angered several New Jersey lawmakers, who called NJTVs decision "an embarrassment" and "a boondoggle."

"This was an event of great interest to the people of New Jersey and something many would want to view first-hand," Assemblyman Patrick Diegnan (D-Middlesex) said in a statement. "Every news outlet in New Jersey and several across the nation were covering this event, and yet New Jerseys own television station was showing a cartoon."

Assemblyman John Burzichelli (D-Gloucester) also criticized the station.

2. Christie tried to croak NJN
he was bloviating about selling it off by the end of last year. So not a big surprise that they'd dis him like that.

Besides, weren't all those other stations basically showing a live-action cartoon? :P

3. Considering the headline of the day is
"Man who said he wouldn't run for president repeats that he won't run for president," I don't see what the big freaking deal is.
