Marty Walsh Hates the Herald

June 25, 2014

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has always struck the hardreading staff as deep-down a Boston Herald kind of guy. But you can’t tell by looking at the local dailies today.

Boston Globe, Page 9:

Boston Herald: Nada thing.

Of course this logo lower left in the ad might explain that.

Even so, it’s a bitter pill for the slighty local tabloid, especially since today’s edition spotlights Walsh in this ad for the virtually unlistenable – and unlistened to – Boston Herald Radio.

Notice that Mayor Marty’s full name appears bottom right of the ad. Think maybe he’s fallen below that in the eyes of the Heraldniks?

Regardless, the headscratching staff wonders whether the good taxpayers of Boston footed the bill for Marty’s Mash Note, or if the Globe comped him. We’re writing to what we hope are the appropriate authorities at the stately local broadsheet, and we’ll keep you posted.

CNN Thumbsucker Whacks Boston Globe Tsarnaev Coverage

December 17, 2013

Apparently it’s not just the Boston Herald that takes issue with the Boston Globe’s The Fall of the House of Tsarnaev.

CNN chinstroker Michael Welner does too.

On last night’s Piers Morgan Live (sorry – CNN’s kudzu-like website features only a half-assed blog for Morgan, perhaps because he’s in the ejector seat), Michael Welner – “forensic psychiatrist & Chair of The Forensic Panel, pioneer of forensic peer review & the Depravity Standard, examiner of precedent cases” whatever the hell that means – went off on the Globe, accusing it of humanizing the inhumane and providing inspiration for copycat killers.

(No video, because Morgan’s in the ejector and etc.)

But . . .

Who’s next to pile on the Globe?

Our money’s on Fox Newshound Bill O’Reilly.
