As the hardreading staff noted earlier, the Boston Herald is working overtime to ignore anything negative about its policrush Scott Brown (R-Elsewhere), while the Boston Globe front-pages once again Brown’s questionable involvement with the shady Florida outfit, Global Digital Solutions.
Brown’s solution to his Globe-al problem? Dump the scamsters. Todd Wallack and Noah Bierman continue to report.

Gives up stock, says his role had become campaign distraction
Republican Scott Brown abruptly resigned Wednesday from an obscure Florida company and gave up stock initially valued at $1.3 million after facing a barrage of questions about his role as a “senior adviser,” a controversy that had dogged his US Senate campaign in New Hampshire.
Brown’s resignation from the advisory board of Global Digital Solutions Inc. was announced about two hours after a news media event in the state’s capital designed to highlight his official entry into the race. He was repeatedly challenged by reporters in Concord seeking answers about what he had done to earn the stock grant, and whether he had scrutinized the company before lending it his name.
“I’ve already answered it for two days,” Brown said, defending his role at the company. “We put out a statement.” The questions continued, and Brown said, “I am not really sure what else to say,” as cameras recorded him getting into his green GMC truck. Democrats promptly posted video of the uncomfortable exchange.
And it’s not just the Democrats who are on Brown’s case – other news organizations are hounding him too, as a quick search of the Googletron reveals.
Notably absent from the list? That’s right – the Herald. Far be it from the flirty local tabloid to criticize its pinup boy, eh?
