Monday’s Boston Globe featured major coverage of a major brain injury study from Boston University.
Via the Newseum’s Today’s Front Pages:
(Full disclosure: The hardreading staff moonlights as a mass communication professor at BU.)
Monday’s Boston Herald, on the other hand, featured . . . nothing.
But the feisty local tabloid did post this AP story to its website Monday morning:
BU study links head injuries to brain damage
BOSTON — An extensive study of the brains of dead athletes and others shows that most had signs of brain damage after suffering repeated head injuries.
The study published Monday by the Boston University School of Medicine reports on the autopsies of 85 brain donors.
The autopsies revealed extensive evidence of protein tangles clogging brain tissue and causing the destruction of brain cells in football players, wrestlers, hockey players, boxers, and military combat veterans.
The AP report even credited the Globe piece, which had to hurt over at Wingo Square.
Just like a brain freeze, eh?
