Gawker falsely claims Chris Christie kicked off ‘quiet car’ for screaming

christieOn Sunday, Gawker reported that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was kicked off a “quiet car” based on a claim by someone who told Gawker he was a passenger who allegedly witnessed the incident.

“He got on last minute yelling at his two secret service agents I think because of a seat mixup, sat down and immediately started making phone calls on the quiet car,” said a man identified as Alexander Mann, a passenger on his way home to Manhattan. “After about 10 minutes the conductor asked him to stop or go to another car. He got up and walked out again yelling at his secret service. He was drinking a McDonald’s strawberry smoothie.”

Exactly.  I’m no fan of Christie, either, but this is exactly why so many no longer trust the so-called “mainstream media.”  Naturally, other outlets picked up Gawker’s story.

Gawker ultimately issued an update:

Sadly, this is the kind of “reporting” we can expect to see from what I’ve come to call the “Democrat-media complex.”
