Article on NY Mag about Facebook/IKEA Scam

Yesterday, I had a story on New York's "Daily Intel" blog about a scam being run through Facebook that offers a phony $1,000 gift card if you become a Facebook fan of IKEA and invite all your friends to do so.

Read it here and don't be lured by the $1,000 gift card.

Also, in the May issue of New Jersey Monthly, an interview I did with Lou Dobbs should be published. It's pretty interesting and I'll definitely post a link to it here when it's online.

Work on HuffPost, Patch &

In an exercise of obligatory soul-selling, I covered the meeting of a pair of reality TV stars.  Snooki, an MTV reality star from Jersey Shore, paid a visit to Carlo's City Hall Bake Shop this week to shoot a scene for the hit TLC reality series Cake Boss. I know--reality cross-over madness! But, I managed to keep my poise and get some pics of the meeting and sold a story about it to The Huffington Post, which you can read here. For more pics of Snooki with the Cake Boss, click here.

Also, in addition to writing for Hoboken Progress, lately, I've contributed a few stories to Patch, a recently launched news site in Hoboken. For a story about a union using the universal symbol of labor grievance to battle drug store giant Walgreens, click here

For a story about a man in a cow costume delivering lunch to the Cake Boss, click here. And for a story about Barnes & Noble ending its 15-year run in the Mile Square, click here.

And last but not least, I contributed a couple of stories to The Jersey Journal, which you can read here and here.
