As the hardreading staff has dutifully noted, the Boston Herald has resolutely refused to cover the Boston Globe’s Chernobylesque home delivery meltdown over the past three months.
And that includes the lately local broadsheet’s white flag in yesterday’s edition.
Globe ends deal with delivery company
Subscriptions lost in transition debacle
The Boston Globe is cutting ties with the home delivery company whose problem-plagued takeover of service less than three months ago left thousands of angry customers in Greater Boston without newspapers.
Globe officials said Tuesday that ACI Media Group will soon no longer handle any of its routes. The Long Beach, Calif., company had retained part of the Globe’s business after the delivery debacle and after the newspaper’s decision to give many routes in the area to its previous vendor, Publishers Circulation Fulfillment Inc.
“Transition debacle” should be mother’s milk to the thirsty local tabloid, but . . . nothing.
Yo, Heraldniks: What the hell’s wrong with you?
