boycott northjersey.com
« on: January 15, 2019, 05:36:33 AM »
I want to encourage readers and those who link articles for public viewing on this website to utilize news sources that are FREE. 

www.northjersey.com is charging me to view articles.  I am unsure if this is because I viewed too many articles for free this month, or if they are now doing this across the board to everyone.

It's great that people are posting news articles of interest, but at least some of us can no longer read them.

There are other news sources that have news articles which can be viewed for free.  Hell, I'd rather read Victor Sasson than have to pay northjersey.com a few dollars per month. Go Victor....lol.  northjersey.com ise running an intro special, but the actual price is higher than 99 cents per month.

Incognito Mode in your browser can work wonders.

North Jersey's mobile apps allow a couple dozen free articles.

Adding outline.com to the beginning of the URL might also make some magic happen.

Best of luck.

Mike, going incognito got me to view 10 articles, and then apparently I still have to pay. That'll be in just a few days, I'm sure.

I do appreciate you trying, and I gave you one "clap" point on your karma.

Thanks, Eric.

I think you'll find that number will reset with each new Incognito tab or window. But you didn't hear that from me.  ;)

Eric, I just posted more on the school referendum tomorrow, on this message board and on my blog https://thesassonreport.blogspot.com/. And you're wrong that I am against education. I'm just against the Zisa-controlled school board's profligate ways -- high legal fees, high administrative salaries, schools run into the ground, no green energy on any school building or apparently for the proposed new junior high. etc. etc.

I used to read your blog more, before you merged them all.  I am less interested in restaurant and food, and more in Hackensack stuff.

As for the referendum, I honestly believe the Zisa's have nothing to do with it, and I wouldn't even be sure that Jack Zisa would vote YES. I think it's more the Democratic Municipal Committee, the Hurwitz's, Mark Stein, and Rick Salkin. And basically that is what is left of the Zisa machine. Jack Zisa is currently chair of the Bergen County Republican Organization, which I think has no elected officials on the County level.

There is a search box on my merged blog you can use to find Hackensack posts.
