Christie: Media Owes Me Apology


chris christieNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie this week blamed the media for continuing to link him to the Bridgegate scandal that has ensnared two of his top former aides, saying he deserves an apology.

“Three different investigations have verified exactly what I said the day after this incident happened, that I have no knowledge of it and had absolutely nothing to do with it,” Christie said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“You know what happens when the media shouting gets crazy over a story like they went crazy over Bridgegate and were convicting me the day after of heinous acts,” he continued. “Now that there’s no truth to what they said, they say, ‘oh well he didn’t do anything but he created an atmosphere.’ That’s what the liberal media does rather than saying I’m sorry, which is what they should say.

“When you’re exonerated, then the people who wrongly accused you should have the guts to stand up and say I’m sorry, but of course these people don’t do that,” Christie said this week. “I’ve apologized to the people of New Jersey for putting those people in the position to do what they did, but I’m not going to allow people to mischaracterize my public record over false allegations.”



  1. Dear Gov. Christie,

    You appointed these folks. Will you appoint people like this to high positions when you are President? If not, what changes are you making to make sure that you wont?
