Boston Dailies Whiff on Correia’s ‘Fake News’ Claim

The hardreading staff gave the local dailies two days to piggyback on Jo C. Goode’s dustup with Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia in his increasingly desperate attempt to hold onto his office.

But the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald got nothin’.

So let’s repair to The Herald News for the story (tip o’ the pixel to Brian Stelter’s Reliable Sources newsletter).

Herald News backs reporter as Mayor Jasiel Correia admits to creating website pushing ‘fake news’ meme

 

FALL RIVER — The Herald News is standing behind its reporter Jo C. Goode as Mayor Jasiel Correia II has repeatedly attempted to discredit her reporting through a website he created.

For the second time in a month, Correia posted the link to jogoode.com on Twitter, which brings people to a website displaying a meme of President Donald Trump declaring “You are fake news.”

The latest link came in response to a Tweet from Goode that a crew affiliated with HBO and Mark Wahlberg was filming Correia in Government Center Thursday afternoon. The first instance came after Goode posted a question on Twitter on Nov. 24 asking if Correia was moving from his Bank Street apartment. The Herald News previously had reported that Correia had been served a notice to quit by Dec. 1, sharing the document on heraldnews.com.

 

When asked about the site, Correia told the Herald News ““It just is what it is. Jo reports fake news and I stand by it.”

Not even sure what that means, but clearly the guy has issues. They just have yet to register with the Boston dailies.

(For those of you keeping score at home: Here’s the link for jogoode.com and here’s Correia’s Twitter feed. Enter at your own peril.)

Two Daily Town Official Prediction ™

Jo C. Goode will land at at major metro daily right soon. Maybe even the Boston Globe.
