Howie Carr-icatures Boston Globe – Again

Nothing cheers up Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr quite like a good case of Globenfreude. So he had to be thrilled with this news:

Note the “Globe Staff” byline: That tells you this is all corporate eyewash that no reporter would attach a name to.

Out of it Carr fashions a three-rail Marty Walsh-John O’Brien-Globe nepotism bank shot.

It’s all relative at Globe

Dear Marty,

This too shall pass. As you well know, in Boston nothing is on the level. But what you may only now be realizing is that the Globe is even less on the level than the State House or City Hall.

You merely point out the fact that John O’Brien, a hack’s hack, was just doing his job, and all of a sudden the bow-tied bumkissers are kicking you down the stairs like you’re Scott Brown.

The Globe has a long and storied history — just ask them. They had a publisher named Taylor, who was succeeded by a guy named Taylor, who was succeeded by a guy named Taylor …

They had an editor named Winship, who was succeeded by a guy named Winship. The paper was then bought by Mr. Sulzberger, who had taken over for Mr. Sulzberger.

 

Pretty thin gruel that quickly runs out of Globe-Globe steam and descends to this:

The editor is named McGrory. He had some old-maid relative who wrote the same column every day for 86 years, all of which began, “Golly gee, isn’t Tip O’Neill a great man?”

 

That’s rich coming from a guy who’s mailed in so many columns, he deserves a Lifetime Achievement Award from the U.S. Postal Service.

Then again, it’s all relative, isn’t it?
