    He should be given the Pulitzer for local reporting. Did he actually get suspended for this?

    In fairness, he was suspended/demoted and refused the demotion as a contract employee. Also, he was "officially" suspended because he broke station policy of adding editorial opinion to a story.

    What used to be called telling the truth is now called insensitivity.

    Come on. Dude wasn't reading off a teleprompter?

    And he is an ancillary guy on NJN, what couple he be making? $40-50k/yr?

    Jersey City cop is on suspension for posting the alleged threat from the Bloods on his FB page. The mayor had the memorial for the cop killer taken down and the "urbans" are all upset.

    Every town that dude mentioned, Jersey City, Trenton, Newark, should have National Guard go in and execute all known gang members and anyone in known gang hideouts. It is the only solution to the problem. Lakewood too.

    Changes from station to station. Usually you would let your more senior guys do the editorial comments.

    Someone please an enlightened sociopath out: the fuck was the offensive statement-
    The deal about "inner city" when the word "urban" is more acceptable to some?
    Or was it the part about not having fathers in the home?
    I'm serious -this shit is about to give me a stroke & I usually don't pay this kind of shit any mind.

    Depends. Was he hired as a "reporter" or one of those "opinion" people? To me, he was right on with his comments and it's laughable that he got fired but maybe it's not as simple as we think it is

    Saddest part is if the reporter was African-american, no one would have given the report a second thought. The stooges on the set would just not their heads in agreement.
