C’mon, you don’t think these trusted sources our local journalists developed through their “street smarts” weren’t actually controlling the media with certain inside info, documents, and spin?
Really, you don’t believe that every time an agent and reporter got/get together for a mutual stroke fest the agent didn’t/doesn’t file a report with the home office “detailing” the meeting?
And you really couldn’t believe that every time a government controlled propaganda newspaper story unwittingly written by the self-absorbed reporter is published a newspaper clipping of the story wasn’t sent to update the file?
How else does a federal agent let the bosses know he is doing a good job?
It’s even better for long time Bulger reporter David Boeri. His brother Steven is a DEA agent who was assigned to help plant bugs on the white man’s American made car back in the day.
Boeri’s brother was among a few involved that Bulger made to look the fools when the bug was found before it ever rolled.
Yeah, this is the guy our local public radio station assigns to do in-depth coverage of the hurry-up-and-get-it-done-and-protect-the-cover-up trial against a man who hurt his brother. The one that opened his question at the Whitey capture press conference saluting the feds with a “congratulations”.
What do you think of all this Dan Kennedy?
Man, when the real stories start coming out, and they will, the Globe will claim they were the victims. They were duped by the feds.
Meanwhile John Connolly sits in a prison in Florida hoping for the best well sons still grow-up without a father ever around.
(a fork between the eyes for anyone who comes back with the names of the 18 so-called murder victims whose kids lost a dad)
