The hardreading staff has been thoroughly flummoxed by the Boston Herald’s recent abdication of its sacred duty to pummel crosstown rival Boston Globe on any and all occasions.
And what an occasion the stately local broadsheet has presented in its current inability to deliver its print edition to vast swaths of home subscribers.
An inability, by the way, the lately local broadsheet is now kind of hiding.
Start with this now-routine note on the Globe’s homepage.
Click on that ConsumerUpdate link and you finally get to the tough luck towns du jour.
Today’s unlucky number of “delivery delay” zip codes: 100.
The whole runaround is just lame.
But the fraidy local tabloid is even lamer, because it continues to ignore the Globe delivery meltdown. Not to mention ignoring Boston GlobeSox owner John Henry’s hot little tweet yesterday about a piece by the Unsinkable Emily Rooney at WGBH News (note the Update at bottom).
Don’t think we’ve heard the end of this one yet. But don’t bother checking the Herald about it.
