NJ News Source on False Priscilla Presley story

Below is a photo of SELF proclaimed cousin of Elvis Presley, "Thomas Presley" who was the source of the false story that Priscilla Presley was coming to Bayonne this past Saturday. Rather than own up to the false story, the Jersey Journal prefers to put the blame on Ms. Presley herself, calling her a NO Show. This has left fans & residents unjustly angry at the widow of Elvis Presley. Good journalists!  Just looking at this....well, as Elvis himself would say FREAK, I get angry! People like this make US Elvis fans look bad. It feeds into the stereotypical image of an Elvis fan. Question: Why would a PRESLEY family member sew a patch announcing he is an alleged Presley on his Hawaiian shirt? The Presley family does NOT present themselves this way! How could ANYONE especially a journalist think Priscilla Presley, one of the classiest women alive would have anything to do with the likes of this CHARACTER? It seems to be an intentional poke at Elvis fans! Printing a story lik

NJ Paper: Priscilla Presley a NO Show but....

Instead of checking their facts before putting Priscilla Presley's photograph on the front cover of their newspaper, they ran a false story! The paper stated, Thomas Presley, Elvis' cousin said Priscilla Presley was coming to town to honor an impersonator who claimed to know both Elvis & Priscilla. Being born & raised in Bayonne & a life long Elvis fan who has met Priscilla numerous times, this was news to me. And laughable! There is NO Thomas Presley! Even family members I contacted, Knew no such person! Although the Jersey Journal & have been informed this story is false. They refuse to own up to bad journalism. And apologizing to Priscilla Presley as well as the fans. Rather than admit they blew it by NOT fact checking, researching this alleged cousin or contacting Priscilla's people or the estate of Elvis Presley, they have chosen to call Priscilla Presley a NO Show! Leaving lots of local people & fans angry at Ms. Presley. This is beyond WRON

Priscilla Presley is NOT coming to Bayonne Today!

The Jersey Journal and have been reporting that Priscilla Presley was coming to Bayonne today. Their source is a so called cousin, Thomas Presley . The article goes on to say Ms. Presley is coming to speak about her "friend" local Elvis impersonator. It claims both Elvis himself & Priscilla were "friends" of the impersonator.Laughable. The Jersey Journal was so bold as to put Priscilla on the cover of their paper this week. Having been involved in the Elvis world over 25 years, I made calls to family & friends of Elvis who verified they NEVER heard of a cousin named Thomas. Secondly, I contacted sources directly connected to the estate & Ms. Presley who told me they know definitely Priscilla Presley will be ELSEWHERE today . This is not anything new. We have been seeing people use Priscilla's name to promote themselves & their businesses in the last few years. It's a disgrace. Advice to "journalists" -
