But Boston Herald readers might.

At least that’s the assumption of Publishers Circulation Fulfillment, the Globe’s once and current distributor. For the past few days, PCF has run this ad in the drivey local tabloid.

But, as the hardreading staff has noted, “Before anyone jumps at this excellent opportunity . . . he might do well to check out Aviva Chomsky’s In These Times piece about the whole Globe delivery meltdown and the havoc new distributor ACI Media has wreaked on local drivers. In addition to all the ACI mishegoss, there’s this collateral damage: ‘[T]hose who were kept on by PCF are also faced with longer routes to deliver the same number of papers, because of the Globe’s decision.'”

Meanwhile, Globe readers still see this on the lately local broadsheet’s website.

Apparently, PCF = Pretty Compromised Fulfillment.

Ouch.
