As the hardreading staff has chronicled in excruciating detail, the Boston Herald is a past master at promoting itself in its news pages.
But now comes the selfie local tabloid promoting itself in this half-page ad for the OneOrlando Fund.
So you might reasonably be thinking:
1) This is a fund set up by the Boston Herald
2) The multiphobic Herald (immigrants, Muslims, GLBT, and etc.) has finally seen the light.
Except . . .
The OneOrlando Fund has nothing to do with the Herald. From its website:
We’ll give the Herald the benefit of the doubt and assume this is just the milk of human kindness. But given the sketchy local tabloid’s track record, well, draw your own conclusions.
