Boston Herald Subscription: Biggest. Waste. Ever. (II)

October 31, 2013

From our Or You Could Just Set Your Money on Fire desk

Call us the halfreading staff today. Earlier this morning we got a call from a Heraldnik saying the fusty local tabloid was experiencing printing problems so we might get our home-delivered copy of the Boston Herald this afternoon or maybe (and more likely, we’re guessing) along with tomorrow’s edition.

Seriously? Then again, we have had these kinds of problems before.

Just for the record, here’s Page One of today’s Boston Herald (via their E-Edition):

And in the interest of fairness, here’s the Boston Globe’s front page:

That one we got at home.


The Globe/Herald James Taylor Coverup (II)

October 28, 2013

As the hardreading staff noted the other day, both local dailies either missed or glossed over the National Anthem Flub by Sickly Sweet Baby James Taylor at Game 2 of the World’s Serious.

To its sort of credit, however, the Sunday Boston Herald did sort of correct the record (without actually acknowledging the omission).

From yesterday’s Inside Track:

After James Taylor’s mini-flub on the national anthem in Game 2 of the World Series, the pressure was on Game 3 singer Colbie Caillat to hit it out of the park last night — and the “Bubbly” singer was feeling it! . . .

Taylor, a grizzled veteran who’s done three World Series anthems at Fenway, had a little blip in Game 2 when he started singing “America The Beautiful” instead of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

 

No such recalibration in the Boston Sunday Globe Names column, though.

The hardbetting staff is laying plenty of 8-to-5 there never will be.
