Think Gov. Christie can be blunt?

Take a look at media coverage of the governor’s presidential announcement.

Our friends at the New Jersey News Commons have compiled a sampling of press and social media reactions to Tuesday’s event in Livingston. And it’s not pretty.

Columnists have taken the Governor’s “Tell It Like Is” slogan to heart, evidently.  Lively reading.

The News Commons also created a Storify page documenting how the announcement unfolded inside Christie’s alma mater, Livingston High School, plus scenes from protests outside the school.

If you missed the Governor’s speech, we have a replay here from NJTV. is a partner in the New Jersey News Commons, a consortium based at the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University.
