Report Praising Trump Issued Just Days Before The Presidential Election

Christie DEP Provided Platform For Trump Corporate PR & Propaganda

NJ Audubon Report Manipulates Public & Peddles “Fake News”

Just days before the 2016 Presidential election, the Christie DEP provided a platform at the DEP headquarters for the presentation of a Report that praised Trump’s National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ. (see page 30).

Yesterday, I wrote to provide the context and explain why that Report and closed door meeting at DEP HQ was totally inappropriate because it provided undue access and influence on DEP and mixed private special interests ¬†with DEP’s regulatory responsibilities.

Today, we focus on the politics of that DEP meeting and Report.

Perhaps the easiest way to highlight the problem would be to suggest a parallel hypothetical case and pose a question about how it would be perceived by the media and public:

Can you imagine the uproar if, just days before the Presidential election, a NJ Democratic Governor provided a platform at DEP Headquarters for a private environmental group to present a Report that praised the Clinton Foundation (and by inference, Hillary Clinton)?

Well, that is exactly what the Christie DEP did.

That NJ Audubon Report is nothing more than corporate public relations and political propaganda with a veneer of green cover.

With all the focus on fake news and Russian manipulation, why the silence by NJ press corps on this November Surprise?

Does anyone think that the praise for Trump’s environmental performance is warranted?

If not, then doesn’t the NJ Audubon Report – and ongoing Trump “partnership” – constitute gross manipulation of the public in a way that benefits a politician?

Isn’t that what is now called “fake news”?

For those that don’t hit links, here is the praise that NJ Audubon heaped on Trump (from page 30):

I am providing text screenshots from that Report in the likely event that NJ Audubon takes down the link – just like their buddy Mike Catania did with this Conservation Resources, Inc. 10 year Report.
