As one of the Boston Herald’s 17 home subscribers, the hardreading staff noted numerous times over the past few years how the print edition of the skimpy local tabloid was often missing late-breaking news and – especially – sports scores.
That deficiency became even more glaring when the Herald shifted its printing a year and a half ago from the Boston Globe’s Taunton facility to the Providence Journal’s Rhode Island press, moving deadlines up to, oh, tea time.
(That contributed in no small part to our dropping the print subscription after several decades and going all-digital.)
But at least the Herald E-Edition would deliver the the later stuff.
Not any more.
Here’s the E-Edition reporting on the New England Patriots’ unthinkable (lookin’ at you, Dan Shaughnessy) loss to the Houston Texans last night.
As it says at the bottom of the left-hand page, you can get full coverage of last night’s game here.
But at that point, why would you bother?
