Both local dailies are on the Aaron Hernandez whodunit like Brown on Williamson. The Boston Herald devotes half its front page to it:
There’s also an editorial expressing the appropriate level of outrage (and actually quotes the Boston Globe and agrees with it – stop the presses!).
Meanwhile, today’s Globe also devotes half of Page One to L’Affaire Hernandez:
But it’s what’s inside that elevates the Globe coverage to obsessive levels.
Here’s how they list the reporting of the main story:
They had someone down in Hernandez’s hometown of Bristol, CT talking to his high school friends, and they sent Brian MacQuarrie to Florida to report on a shooting last winter that allegedly involved Hernandez.
And the best part of the Globe’s coverage is this Page One subhede: “Hernandez is largely out of view as rumors outdistance real news.”
Can’t wait for real news to catch up.
