Thanks to hlpeary there is no excuse for BMGers to have missed this Huffington Post story chronicling the unholy relationship between the Boston Globe and Boston’s US Attorneys Office.
On Friday and Saturday the Globe and Herald attacked the mayor and circled the wagons to protect Carmen Ortiz. Not only were they deflecting the story they were sending a message to our little high school that they are still the cool kids/bullies no matter what the kids from a bigger and cooler school say. They still rule. This story is a one time thing.
Those bigger, cooler, and cockier kids from the Huffington Post are still here. Yesterday they killed the Globe and Herald for the ridiculous grade school response that could only be sold to a brain washed community brought up on a big lie. (that’s us)
Here’s some of HuffPosts observations.
As if working to prove the point, Boston media promptly turned its guns on the mayor and HuffPost in response.
The reaction is symptomatic of the problem HuffPost laid out.
The Boston press has lost its mind.
It’s been interesting to watch the Herald ride to the defense of Ortiz, when the HuffPost article’s criticism of the media focused on its rival, the Globe.
Watch as our local-big-feeling-self-important-living-a-lie-“journalists”-bullies-but-wussies at the Globe, Herald and WGBH get deservedly slammed.
