As word has spread of the boxes of documents carted out of town Thursday with the Feds knocking on doors in Marine View and beyond Friday, Al Sullivan has some entirely different concerns featured in his column, "Between the lines," in the Hudson Reporter.
To say it's spin would be unkind to professional media spinners, to say he got the story a bit off would be too kind. Let's be frank, if there was any doubt whatsoever about Al Sullivan, and there's none here; this column should be the final nail in the coffin; he's an absolute machine tool.

Joe Barry and his tool Al Sullivan. Bring it!
While we can give Al style points, he's woven a lie into each and every paragraph, showing a nimble dexterity to make it almost sound plausible even as we all know he knows he's full of it. He knows it too but why should he care? Down in Bayonne, it's of no consequence and who cares about all those overpaid yuppies up there in Hoboken anyway. They (and Dawn Zimmer) have it coming. They don't have the required love for socialist realism Al has.
In his view of Hoboken, it's these emails between City Hall and local media and the "Zimmer" websites that are of utmost concern. It rises according to the Joe Barry paid employee to the level of Watergate, no body required, we'll just start with the executions and work our way backwards to trial.
Al Sullivan is really not doing anything new here, he's merely parroting what's been fed to him and it's almost always sources from the Old Guard, in this instance it's obviously the Beth Mason junta trying to overcome the FBI's obvious interest with her own storyline. Good luck with that Al, you are about to become less than a footnote.
It fails on every conceivable level, but Al Sullivan is going to give it the old Hoboken411 try. It's so obvious he's being led by the nose by Bet's paid political operatives he even later references a poll commissioned by the mistress of the bottomless checkbook but fails to note anything of interest in same concerning the Masonic Temple of Hudson Street: soon to be visited by the FBI near you.
Instead he references the poll results with Freeholder Anthony Romano as a likable guy. MSV concurs and will be featuring his interview shortly, but that's hardly the focus in Hoboken right now as the boys of summer are running on all cylinders across the mile square. Al Sullivan with no interest in Hoboken taxes, good government, or the integrity of its institutions doesn't have a clue or care for any of it. He's just acting as a machine hack for the machine and doing his best to serve his masters in the form of a big time developer who once owned the Hudson Reporter outright, Joe Barry one and the same, and knows a thing or two around town about bribes and jail.
Keep up the bad work Al. That's true socialist realism you are bringing to the people of Hoboken. In Al Sullivan's world, the Revolution will not be televised, nor reported, nor heard in Hoboken. Ever.
Talking Ed Note: The Revolution is being televised Al. The FBI is shooting live and we salute them!
