NJTV is devoid of genuine news reporting

COMMENTARY

NJTV’s failure to provide live coverage of Chris Christie’s press conference in which he re-affirmed that he would not be a presidential candidate in 2012 flies in the face of competent journalism.

The response from NJTV that they provide coverage on their nightly news program simply insults the intelligence of all viewers. Certainly, as consumers we need to give NJTV a chance. However, many government and legislative related events have taken place over the summer that should have received live coverage.

Beginning this fall, there will be many legislative committee hearings that require live coverage. While trying to apply patience, those old NJN viewers are making comparisons that reveal that NJTV may be unworthy of the opportunity it has been given in New Jersey.

NJTV must step up to the plate and provide appropriate news coverage. Its nightly news program is little more than dragged out discussions of policy issues, devoid of genuine news reporting. Perhaps we need to give the opportunity to another news entity, such as Montclair State University.

NJTV, please make most of this opportunity and become a real source of news and a true public servant in New Jersey!
