BREAKING: Racist photo caption prompts Lakewood Township to cut advertising ties with APP

In response to the racist photo caption published in the Asbury Park Press, the Lakewood Township is cutting ties with the paper, TLS has learned.

The word came moments ago, as pressure mounts against the paper from local and State officials, as well as from Governor Murphy.

The Township has been advertising their legal notices in the paper for decades.

  1. Finally!
    Not only did the APP constantly write slanted articles against the community but we as taxpayers even paid for it by the mandatory advertising.
    Good riddance.

  2. This is great news.
    I always wondered why they advertised there.
    The APP has been reporting negatively about us for a looooooooong time.
    Even that apology needs an apology.

  3. What a double standard! When the story of the whole blackface incident over Purim broke, the BOE and all local schools were put on notice and had to convene public meetings to promote equality. The APP was more than happy to jump on that story and demand a response. Yet when they act in a racist fashion, a short written apology from the editor (not a young child dressing up on Purim in bad taste) is deemed sufficient to calm the ensuing media fallout. How would the APP have reacted if the BOE attorney would have just sent out an email after Purim by saying ‘I’m sorry’. This is unfair and an unjust double standard

  4. I still don’t understand what the problem was. I mean it was vulgar, but I didn’t find it racist.
    I feel like we are blowing this way out of proportion.
