There are many many people in Boston who have listened to and read him for 20 plus years and do not need an explanation of why he is different from Jay Severin, Bill O’Reilly, Michael Graham, Keith Obelman, Rush Limbaugh, Hannify, Jim Braude, Gerry Callahan, Don Imus….. Of course they have all been impolite at times. Impolitenss is what fuels my posts for crissakes.
But Howie is much different and we don’t need explanations
This protest has to move beyond “lefty bloggers”.
Regular people and customers have to tell Bob Sheridan, Sal Bertolami, Dennis Drinkwater and others that “Hey, Howie’s just not a good guy.”
What goes around comes around and it is time that us Bostonians band together and let him know that although funny and intelligent his motis operandi is not appreciated by any person with decency. Throwing punch after punch after punch at a guy already knocked down and given the ten count is beyond classless. The constant fat jokes about George Keverian back in the day; the ready to pounce when a small time politician family member gets into to trouble; the bizarre repetitive attacks on Tom Finneran.
The track girls don’t do that.
Time for Bostonians to join forces and finally do the right thing.
BTW This quopte stands out from the INside Track Piece.
Bob Sheridan was upset because his has the utmost respect for Ernie, which is why he called him himself,” said Sheridan’s spokesman, George Regan . “He was pretty sheepish when he found out it wasn’t him. “He values his relationship with WRKO and is a proud sponsor of the ‘Howie Carr Show.’ But there is a bigger issue here – people posing as others on the Internet.”
Mr. Sheridan do you also value your relationship with your customers, the governor, the speaker of the house, the senate president, the mayor and other powerful people who have been targets of Howie’s unique brand of journalism?
