Depends on whether you read the Globe or Herald, John Carroll reports, in the latest chapter of the "It's good to live in a two-paper town" story.Read more

Thin-skinned flacks show displeasure at Romney op-ed piece; ban Herald from today's traffic blocker visit.

You know it's bad when even the Outraged Liberal rises to the Herald's support.

But it is curious that Howie Carr didn't weigh in; you'd think Bariatric Boy would relish the idea to spend 10 minutes with his thesaurus stringing together several paragraphs worth of insults. Oh,...Read more

He's a lawyer involved in the DiMasi case, but after reading Globe and Herald accounts, John Carroll can't figure out which DiMasi pal he's representing.Read more

South End Patch reports on an initial proposal for replacing the Boston Herald building that calls for a 4-5 story residential and store complex - and that some nearby residents decried the building as "too suburban" for the gritty area.Read more

It's a story only the Herald could love: Blue bloods boil over noise of medical helicopters, complete with a classic Herald front page that makes the case that Beacon Hill residents would rather see poor people in medical helicopters headed to Mass. General die than disturb their peace....Read more

Kennedy famously made sure Rupert Murdoch had to choose between keeping Channel 25 and the Herald (a couple decades after the feds stripped the Herald-Traveler of its TV license) and now the Federal Highway Administration thinks the state should make Herald owner Pat Purcell take down the billboard atop the (eventually to be former) Herald plant next to the Expressway.

The FHA...Read more

The Massachusetts Appeals Court today threw out a lawsuit against the Herald and Michele McPhee by an inmate who placed an online dating ad even though their story falsely accused him of manslaughter and "brutal sexual attack on an elderly woman."

In its ruling, the court said Edmond R. LaChance Jr. did not exactly cover himself in glory by omitting from his "Inmate Connection" ad...Read more

Wah, poor Howie Carr is upset Scott Brown went to "60 Minutes" to shill his book instead of to him.

Wah, poor Mike Andelman at the Phantom Gourmet is upset a hostess at Grill 23 wouldn't seat him and his fellow Phantom Gourmet'er before the dining room opened:...Read more

The Herald declares "experts stunned" that Barney Frank announced he's running for re-election in 2012, then fails to actually quote any experts expressing their shocked amazement (because they all fainted at the news and hit their heads on the floor?). Sean Bielat, however, managed to steady himself by grabbing onto the newel post, at least long enough to express his shock.

The Herald does...Read more

The Herald's foreign-correspondent approach to the Whole Foods/Hi-Lo news continues today. Peter Gelzinis, who normally knows better, rushes so fast to get to the class-warfare angle that he loses his way to the real story.

First, the "earthy-crunchy" set in Jamaica Plain doesn't have to drive to Cambridge for organic tomatoes, as Gelzinis claims. Even if they hate the two earthy-crunchy City Feeds,...Read more

Both the Globe and the Herald parachuted reporters into exotic and beguiling Jamaica Plain yesterday to cover the news - broken last week by the Jamaica Plain Gazette - that the Hi-Lo is being replaced by a Whole Foods. Both stories read like dispatches from foreign correspondents earning a bit extra by writing something for the travel section, for audiences looking for the next...Read more

Steve Buckley reports he is gay.

Sean Roche wonders:

How in God's name could Buckley endured all the homophobia on WEEI for all those years?

At least their resident fatboy had the decency to admit he got his surgery for free. The sad thing for the Herald is Chubby got the freebie because of his radio gig (you know, the one he hates), not because of his crusading journalism in print.

The Outraged Liberal has more....Read more

Fitzgerald's maudlin Christmas column today (about some woman who hasn't talked to her daughter in years) got me to thinking: Hey, waitaminnit, what about his annual The Jew Who Loves Christmas column? Why, his column about a Jew fighting the War on Christmas is as much a part of Christmas in Boston as the Enchanted Village the tree at the Prudential Center Santas in...Read more

Really? We need a gallery of Bradyhair? And crack investigative reporters hounding Dr. Leonard to get the truth?

Wonder what Youk's beard thinks of all this.Read more

Carr kvetches the Ware report on the corrupt probation department didn't come out before the election. The Massachusetts Liberal, who notes Carr's 'plaint shares the front page with Bristol Palin, also notes the politically aware in Massachusetts knew about the probation problems because they read about it in the Globe, which broke the story and then kept following it:

We know

Gabrielle Gurley interviews Herald Editor-in-chief Joe Sciacca on everything from the paper's leanings ("populist," he insists, not conservative) to the future of online to the new columnist brought in to make the paper a bit hipper.Read more

The cable news network today suspended Keith Olbermann for making campaign donations to three Democratic candidates last month.

This contrasts with the Herald's Howie Carr. In addition to speaking at and hosting Republican fundraisers this year, the columnist last month gave $100 to Wellesley state Rep. candidate Royall Switzler, according to records on file at the state Office of Campaign and Political...Read more
