Neither the Globe nor Kirsner have a problem with him running forums that rake in money from local high-tech entrepreneurs of the sort he writes about as a freelancing Globe columnist, but the Boston Business Journal noses around.

The Dig, meanwhile, goes full rant on the Republican hacks who double as Herald columnists, using numerous words derived from old English that would not... Read more

UPDATE: Herald stands by story, calling it "not only excellent, but important, leading as it did to a Department of Corrections investigation and certain reform measures."

Chris King, who has been reporting on Joanna Marinova's lawsuit against the Herald in Suffolk Superior Court, reports the jury today found for Marinova in her claims that the Herald and reporter Jessica Van Sack libeled her... Read more

Dan Kennedy has a tip for the crusty columnist - and his apparently on-an-extended-break copy editor:

When mocking someone for misspelling a state legislator’s name, try extra hard not to misspell the name of a congresswoman.

CommonWealth reports Herald owner Pat Purcell paid a visit to John Henry's Brookline manse to offer his condolences give his regards, to see if there are any further ways the two media outlets could work together (the Globe already prints the Herald) and, maybe, to caution about possibly moving the Globe's printing operations from Morrissey Boulevard to the Telegram and Gazette printing plant in... Read more

The Herald is sparing no space in its effort to crucify a Globe reporter who tweeted he was tired of the way "Boston Strong" has been commercialized, a thought that no good Bostonian has ever uttered.

Bombing victim: Sox not exploiting motto, the soon to be smaller Herald trumpets today:

A marathon bombing victim yesterday brushed off snarky social media charges that

Adrian Walker tweets that the Rev. Eugene Rivers, who screamed from the front page of the Herald that blacks are to blame for Tuesday's results, hasn't voted in well over a decade. And this alleged active backer of Charlotte Golar Richie didn't vote Tuesday, either, yet has the gall to blame backers of other minority candidates for her loss.

Speaking of religion... Read more

Bruce Allen reads that Rolling Stone piece about Aaron Hernandez and reports he can point out the exact paragraphs that were written by professional Patriots hater Ron Borges.

Ed. note: I am not such a keen observer of the Boston sports media scene as Bruce, but the nitpicker in me is dying to know: Where's the strip club in South Boston the article claims... Read more

But the Herald, Suffolk University and NECN are going to try. David Bernstein reports the scrappy tabloid, the upstart university and the basic-cable news network today announced a mayoral forum - for the same exact time as a forum announced weeks ago by an arts coalition that had gotten Kulhawik to moderate.

The Herald, Suffolk and NECN at first proposed a forum at... Read more

Like Globies Shelley Murphy and Kevin Cullen, the Herald's Howie Carr can also watch the Bulger trial from the public seats, judge rules. Meanwhile, Bulger's lawyers want the trial delayed so they can investigate whether State Police gave a witness the same sort of protection Bulger allegedly got from the FBI.... Read more

[float=right]IMAGE(http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk143/nfsagan/BHTamerlan_zps5172b54e.jpg)[/float] Leave it to the Boston Herald to use the recent tragedy of the Boston Marathon bombing for politics, the politics of transitional assistance also known as welfare. Say what? What does domestic terrorism and welfare have to do with each other?

Well, yesterday the legislature on Beacon Hill was debating a budget and Republicans are, once again, trying... Read more

Will Steve Lynch enter the contest for Boston Mayor? According to the Boston Herald, many believe that Steve Lynch will enter the Mayoral Contest to replace Tom Menino after the April 30th U.S. Senate Election.

According to Suffolk Construction CEO John Fish and prominent Democratic powerbroker, he seems to think so.

Fish states: “I think he’s going to move to the mayoral campaign. I... Read more

Sour grapes at the Herald? With bonus gratuitous quote from some lawyer making accusations with no apparent facts behind them:

If he was a reporter on deadline and he's distracted and making phone calls and texting, then that's something that adds to his fault. You're not supposed to be distracted in a cab, you're supposed to focus fully on your job," said Douglas Sheff,

Not that we have any evidence he's thinking of it, but it's good to know one-time protege Pat Purcell would have options for his scrappy little tabloid under a proposal to allow cross ownership in the nation's 20 largest TV markets. You may recall how Uncle Rupe had to decide between Channel 25 and the Herald back in the days when he and... Read more

Yeah, losing hurts and sometimes all you can do is lash out at the people around you. Adults can make a learning experience of it, though, Holly.

BostonHerald.com is now powered by Drupal. You go, you crazy open-source-loving fiends, you! But, um, the site (hosted by the Burlington-based Acquia, whose founder came up with Drupal) is lapsing in and out of consciousness this afternoon as they work out the kinks in their new cloud-based Drupal server farm.... Read more

Or as media wags would say: Thank God We're a Two-Newspaper Town (tm). Yes, the latest circulation figures are out.

The Globe says God, we're awesome - our numbers are so strong it's like we took a double dose of Cialis.

OK, OK, yeah, technically, dead-tree circulation continued to drop like a rock tied to an anchor, but, hey, digital subscriptions count... Read more

Herald coversTake a jab at finding the similarities here.

A roving UHub correspondent thought there was something familiar about today's Herald front page, which featured a gloved hand holding a syringe to illustrate an end-of-the-world headline about state oversight of that fungus-infested Framingham pharmacy. Sure enough, he rummaged around and discovered the... Read more
