More on the Estabrook PSA

One Democratic legislator, an unabashed supporter of public television and a self-described NJN news junkie, says that Executive Director Elizabeth Christopherson and her NJN development team showed poor judgment whenthey asked Anne Evans Estabrook to tape a public service announcement just as she was embarking on a race for the United States Senate. The legislator, who says she is supporting Frank Lautenberg for re-election next year, suggested that the savvy Christopherson must have known that Estabrook was running for the Senate — the first mention of Estabrook’s candidacy on NJN News came two months before the PSA was taped — and said that by placing fundraising first, Christopherson gives the impression that NJN is “willing to trade free air time for donations.”

The legislator asked that her name not be used.
