Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is living in a fantasy world.
She’s hot on the heels of the hot sports “contest” website DraftKings, which has spent $81 million on TV spots in the past six weeks, according to the Wall Street Journal. But that’s not keeping Healey from nickel-and-diming the DraftKingpins. She’s investigating whether the so-called fantasy sports site is actually a betting scheme in sheep’s clothing. And, as per usual, the Boston dailies see her quest quite differently.
The Boston Globe plays it straight with a C1 piece below the fold.
Crosstown at the Boston Herald, the story gets the expensive two-page spread.
The punting local tabloid looks at the AG’s overreach from the fantasy fan’s point of view Owen Boss’s report, the legal perspective in Bob McGovern’s column, and a John Sapochetti piece representing the umbrage-industrial complex.
And we’re betting we haven’t heard the last of this from the Heraldniks either.
