Bakke Says Politico “Reporter” is Democratic Mouth Piece
“A mouth for the moth lover”
East Brunswick, NJ- Synnove Bakke, a Republican candidate for New Jersey Assembly from Middlesex County responded to a recent hit piece on her by Politico-New Jersey reporter Matt Friedman with the following statement:
“The Columbia School of Journalism should demand it’s diploma back from Matt Friedman,” Bakke said. “He is not reporting, but rather is regurgitating opposition research paid for by Trenton Democrats and my opponent Nancy Pinkin. The PC nonsense that Friedman is posting on Poltico-NJ is worthy of a partisan blog, not a journalistic news site and I am shocked Assemblywoman Pinkin would condone this nonsense.”
“Friendman’s recent garbage never would have gotten past the editors of his former employers, the Star Ledger and PolitickerNJ, and that says a lot”, Bakke continued. “I’m not the only Republican he’s gone after. Friedman has been reporting Democratic opposition research as if it was original reporting for weeks.”
Friedman wrote on Poltico-New Jersey beta, an upstart division of the national Democratic leaning website, Politico, that Bakke tweeted that the United States should consider deporting Muslims and faces a “Muslim invasion,” and suggested that President Barack Obama is not an American.
“I have issued 33,000 tweets in the two years I have had that twitter account. That the Trenton Democrats paid someone to go through my tweets and come up with three politically incorrect entries is a sign that my true message is resonating with the voters of the 18th Legislative District.”admin | Filed under: 2015 Elections, 2015 Legislative Races, Legislature, Middlesex County Democrats, Middlesex County Republicans, Middlesex GOP Women's Club, Politics, Press Release | Tags: 2015 Elections, LD 18, Matt Friedman, Politico-New Jersey, Press Release, Synnove Bakke | 1 Comment »
