VIDEO: Abercrombie holds fake news Conference to Announce HGEA's fake 'sacrifice'
By Video @ 1:20 AM :: 6314 Views :: Energy, Environment

This video of Abercrombie announcing the HGEA contact April 7 looks like a news conference, and was billed by the Abercrombie administration as a news conference, but it wasn’t.  This was an interview with two selected reporters—other media sources were not invited. Just as Abercrombie is faking the news conference, it now turns out that the sacrifices made by the HGEA are fake as well.  Be sure to listen to the very end of the fake news conference, Abercrombie AGAIN recycles a line from Friedrich Engles "the war of each against all".  Of course this is purely a coincidence. 

Civil Beat nails it: Hawaii Governor Holds Fake Press Conference

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie has added a new twist to state politics: the fake press conference….

The video shows the governor standing in front of the seal of the state of Hawaii and the state flag, with a couple of microphones held before him. He's in the chamber where the governor traditionally holds his press conferences.

A caption on the governor's official YouTube page read: "Governor Abercrombie concluded an agreement with the Hawai'i Government Employees Association, and held this press conference immediately after."

Yet it turned out there was no press conference. The governor's staff admitted as much after Civil Beat raised questions late Thursday, changing its YouTube caption to read: "Governor Abercrombie concluded an agreement with the Hawai'i Government Employees Association."

"There was no press conference," his press secretary, Donalyn Dela Cruz, told us in an email.
