Boston Herald ALS WTF (II)

As the headscractching staff noted earlier, the Boston Herald only got half the story when it zealously reported yesterday about the boycott of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge triggered by Jim Rigg, the superintendent of Catholic schools for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

What the feisty local tabloid missed was the new Anti-ALS Association Ice Bucket Challenge that directs donations to the John Paul II Medical Research Institute in Iowa City, which does not use embryonic stem cells in its research (the ALS Association does).

So now to today’s Herald,  which devotes a full page to the ALS rumpus – a news report by Lindsay Kalter and a column by Joe Fitzgerald – and still no mention of the competing challenge.

Hey, Heraldniks – do we need to come over there and write it for you? If so, you’ve really hit rock bottom.
