Phoney Palloney Is At It Again, Asbury Park Press Falls For It (Willingly?) Again
By Art Gallagher
The United States Department of Justice announced their Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) grants on Thursday. They awarded $298 million to fund the hiring and retaining of 1,388 state, local and tribal law enforcement officers by 379 police and sheriffs departments in 49 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The funding will be administered by the department’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), and is being awarded under the COPS Hiring Program.
Phoney Palloney told the Asbury Park Press about the grant and they wrote a storythat made it sound like Pallone had something to do with Neptune getting the grant.
New Brunswick, also in Pallone’s 6th congressional district, got almost $1.6 million in COPS funds. That amount wasn’t mentioned in the APP article, nor did Gannett’s outlet that covers New Brunswick, mycentraljersey.com mention it. Pallone must have polling data that tells him he needs free press support in Monmouth, but not in Middlesex.
Just as we saw with the coverage of Pallone’s Fish Tales , his $400 million fish counting stimulus that will never be passed by congress, the Asbury Park Press is in the tank for Frank Pallone. They’re not fair and biased. They’re just biased, pretending not to be. They’re unfair and biased.
