Atlantic City’s mayor is missing. So too is any mention of his party affiliation in this near-800 word report.
It’s New Jersey, Tim. Fugetabouit.
In the Garden State, the “D” is assumed; only the infrequent “R” needs to be identified as such. So how many Joisey “D”s are currently under indictment or “disappeared”? I’ve lost count.Posted by Kyda Sylvester on 2007 10 07 at 12:03 PM • permalink
Good one, trainer, and quite right. Don’t stray more than a block from the Boardwalk.Posted by Kyda Sylvester on 2007 10 07 at 12:09 PM • permalink
#1. The NYT isn’t any better. Notice how far into the article you have to get before the “newspaper of record” mentions his party affiliation. Most people only read the first few paragraphs and would miss it. Likewise if it is picked up by another publication the piece will almost certainly be trimmed for size from the bottom.
Had the party affiliation been R instead of D it would be in the first paragraph.Posted by Bruce Rheinstein on 2007 10 07 at 12:17 PM • permalink
#6 I did notice that Bruce. It’s pretty shocking, but even worse, it’s the first result in the 20 I looked at on Google which actually had his party affiliation written in it.
I figured that he was a Democrat when it wasn’t in the first 3 results. As you said, if he was a Republican, that would be plastered all over the news report.
“So how many Joisey “D”s are currently under indictment or “disappeared”? I’ve lost count.”
It’d probably be easier to count the number of Joisey “D’s” who aren’t.Posted by David Crawford on 2007 10 07 at 01:20 PM • permalink
Then you might wish to join Mr Don Surber in his “Name that Party” competition.

It’s probably easier to find out that he’s a ‘former Republican’. Former Republican Guess he had to change to win, in NJ. Anyhow, I guess if he’s crooked it’s okay since he switched parties.Posted by JorgXMcKie on 2007 10 07 at 06:19 PM • permalink
- Boy, I’ll bet Kyda and Crawford think they’re a laff riot. Grow up, dudes, only perpetually adolescent Midwesterners and Southerners say “Joisey.”
But that’s OK. We’ll buy them when the crash comes.Posted by Gary from Jersey on 2007 10 08 at 10:31 AM • permalink
Mr. Levy, a longtime chief of the beach patrol here, is a Democrat and first-term mayor whose political problems apparently began last fall when several articles appeared in The Press of Atlantic City questioning his service record in Vietnam.

This wouldn’t be a case of MSNBC protecting it’s preferred political party, would it?
