Boston Herald Subscription: Biggest. Waste. Ever.

October 21, 2013

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

The hardreading staff had a neighbor some years ago who objected to our Boston Herald home subscription on the grounds that a Herald on our front porch “reduced property values.”

Yeesh.

But now we’re wondering about the value of the Herald itself.

Sure, later editions (and the electronic edition) of the Herald sported this front page:

But that didn’t do the hardreading staff any good.

The thing is, as home subscribers we’re the guaranteed money for the fusty local tabloid. And all 17 of us are getting lousy value for the dollar.

The hardreading staff, for one, is not happy.
