Governor Christie has earned the moniker “The YouTube Governor”, but it’s more than that. YouTube is a great way for him to spew his propaganda without any meaningful discussion or feedback. He follows the same modus operandi at his town hall meetings – controlling the microphone, belittling his opponents, and using the State Police to escort those who want to engage in a dialog out of the room.
To counter this one-sided information flow, several of us have formed a YouTube channel whose purpose is to use Christie’s medium to present the other side of the issues. We plan on producing videos with teachers and other citizens who will tell their first person stories on how the governor’s agenda has impacted their lives, and to correct half-truths or outright lies in the governor’s message.

Here’s the first new video from that site. It uses the governor’s taxpayer-funded video as a backdrop. If you have comments or suggestions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
