14. A sign that the press no longer has Christie's back(side)*?

*A metaphor, not a weight joke.

Asbury Park Press (8/3/2017): (A)ccording to...Black Keys...drummer...Patrick Carney...Jon Bon Jovi used (him) to avoid Gov. Chris Christie at a party...The revelation came during Carney’s High Standards Music Corner segment for Vice News Tonight in December (2016).

“I’ve met Bon Jovi once, and it was actually at Howard Stern’s birthday party,” Carney said. “Chris Christie was in the room, and Jon Bon Jovi came over and started talking to me, like really intensely. I was like, ‘Wow, why does Jon Bon Jovi want to talk to me?’ Then I realized it was just because he didn’t want to talk to Chris Christie.”

Christie and Bon Jovi did attend Stern’s birthday party in (January) 2014 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City...as details of the Bridgegate scandal were unfolding...The two did talk at the Stern party — on stage. Christie, who’s famously a fan of Bruce Springsteen, introduced Bon Jovi to the Ballroom crowd...

A Bon Jovi rep had no comment on the supposed incident. A rep for Christie said the story is false to the New York Post...

The subject of Bon Jovi came up...as...Carney...was reviewing the(ir)...song This House is Not for Sale...

The party took place in 2014, and Carney's Vice show took place this past December -- so at the risk of overstating the obvious, why DIDN'T the Asbury Park Press and New York Post consider this news eight months ago? Has Christie been so successful at intimidating the press that they're only beginning to feel it's safer to print negative stuff about him? If so, that means there ought to be a lot more to come!
