A definition of confrontational

This has been widely disseminated already, but the YouTube version was pulled over a copyright claim by the newspaper involved. It has to be a joke that a reporter's question at a press conference can be copyrighted, much less the response to that question. Of course, how easily YouTube is intimidated and the defensiveness of the newspaper just make it more interesting.

IAC, the question doesn't appear in this version, but you don't need it to understand the answer.




I really like Chris Christie.

BTW, the question was, "Governor, do you think this sort of confrontational tone that you're taking can increase your odds in getting this through the legislature?"

The columnist, Tom Moran of the Star-Ledger, can be found here. I don't recommend the link, but JIC you are perversely curious.

Perhaps it is an honest coincidence, but YouTube is owned by the far-left corporation known as Google.
