JUST IN: Lakewood School District announces it has completely cut ties with the APP in response to racist photo caption

In response to the racist photo caption in the Asbury Park Press, the Lakewood School District has announced it has completely cut all ties with the paper.

The District announced, “The Lakewood Board of Education has “polled” its members in advance of its upcoming Board meeting. At this time, the Board has voted to discontinue any advertising with the Asbury Park Press (APP) as well as any interactions with the APP. Effective immediately, the New Jersey Star Ledger will replace the APP as the Board approved media, along with continuing with The Lakewood Scoop. More to Follow.”

The announcement comes after sources told TLS the Lakewood Township has cut advertising ties with the paper.

Since the story broke, the APP has come under fire from local and state officials, as well as from Congressman Smith, the ADL, and Governor Murphy.

  1. Goose Gossage is generally against cancer culture but these are bad people so it isn’t the worst thing that this happened.

  3. It is Shameful that the Overwhelming Jewish Media has not even reported the story.

    I guess it is in keeping with their Motto, ‘Yesterdays News Next Month’

    Where is Agudah? Where is ADL? Why not a 100,000 man march on APP, do you think this affects only Lakewood.

    The Ability of the Press to malign and in fact Endanger the Jewish community with this type of Racist description is the Stuff of the Nazi Propaganda machine of the 20’s and 30’s.

    No, I am not being melodramatic. If you declare yourself a media Spokesman for the Jewish Community you have an obligation to yell until we are heard.

    You cannot allow this story to disappear in the 24-48 hour news cycle.

    Just think if this would have been said of any other ethnic group in America or the world, there would have been protestations all the way to Congress and the White house. Where is Schumer? Where are the Senators of NJ?

    It doesn’t seem as if Murphy has lost too much sleep over this! Instead he is busy trying to figure out how to legalize recreational drugs in NJ so that its citizens will be to stupefied to intelligently know what is going on around them.

    Lakewood Scoop, I thank you for being brave enough to break the story. Please keep it alive!!! THE JEWISH COMMUNITY MUST UNDERTAKE TO BOYCOTT EVERY SINGLE ADVERTISER OF THE ASBURY PARK PRESS.

  4. Uh, yes you are being melodramatic.
    First of all, Jewish media and not just the Lakewood scoop is very much on top of their game, unless you By Jewish media you mean “aguda & adl “ In which case you don’t mean media at all.
    Second of all, it would look ridiculous to make a March on the APP for one caption that I honestly don’t think is very offensive or racist. The over the top cancel culture we live in must be getting to you.
    I don’t like the asbury park press, I honestly don’t even like asbury park the City but we should all calm down
