New York Daily News Reports Its Beef With Chris Christie is Officially Squashed
Love is in the air. Chris Christie seems to have reconciled with the Daily News after a blow-up over the paper's New York Jets coverage last week. The dispute sprang from the co-hosting bit Christie did on August 26, when the governor called the Daily News's Jets reporter Manish Mehta an "idiot" and a "dope" for mocking Jets coach and Christie's friend Rex Ryan over a bad call late in a game.
The News reports that like every small-town romance, Christie and the paper fell back in love at the Labor Day parade.
Stomping for votes in his reelection bid, Christie was riding in the South Plainfield Labor Day Parade when a News staffer held up the paper and said, "I'm reading your favorite paper."
Christie responded, "I love those guys."
Really not sure if this counts as a hand-on-heart change in perspective, but OK, Daily News, you can have this one.
