    With regard to the NJ Spotlight piece you cite that was written by Governor Florio:

    I have the utmost admiration for him. New Jersey has not had as excellent a governor since he left the State House. But it should be pointed out that the article is labeled “Sponsored Content” – probably paid for by PSE&G which is a patron of NJ Spotlight.

    I’m not going to debate the pros and cons of nuclear subsidies here – I’ve expressed my opinion elsewhere. But I just wanted to point out the paid bias of this article, and it should be read and analyzed in that context.
