This is what the Boston Herald lives for.
Our feisty local tabloid devotes nearly four full pages to the casino-industrial complex today.
Corruption! Rampant patronage! Zero accountability!
For the Herald, this deal is the grift that keeps on giving.
Crosstown, by contrast, the Boston Globe has this nothingburger of a story in today’s Metro section:
Aside from some mild finger-wagging by columnist Adrian Walker over Boston Mayor Tom Menino’s ram-rodding this deal through, our stately local broadsheet has had nary a discouraging word about the proposed billion-dollar gambling hell – sorry, hall.
C’mon, Globeniks – get on this stick. Where’s that righteous indignation about gambling? Or even some of your trademark tsk-tsking?
You gonna let the Herald have all the fun?
