Massarotti once again tears into Boston fans, this time for allegedly ignoring the fact that the Sox were cheaters. Bruce Allen once again tears into the sportswriter, asking if the fans ignored cheating by the Sox, what of alleged professionals like Massarotti who never raised the issue?

... Massarotti was on the Red Sox beat during the height of the steroid era. All this was supposedly happening right under his nose. We never heard him say a word about it.

But it is the fans who are blind. ...

Adam Reilly has the details on Tony Massarotti jumping from the Herald to the Globe, where he'll become "the face and voice of boston.com sports." He also reports on Gordon Edes' replacement.

Dan Kennedy: Massarotti is a leading reason to read the Herald, so this is a huge, huge loss. Also shows Globe is taking weei.com seriously as a threat, he says.

WEEI to pose threat to Boston Dirt Dogs.

On Day 2 of Herald Held Hostage, Bruce Allen begins to feel alienated by the Herald, especially Tony Massarotti:

... My instinct tells me it's the Herald capitalizing on the publicity that this whole incident has generated. Tony writes angry column. Fans can't help but read it. They respond by commenting and talking about it with others. More papers are purchased. More ads are shown online as more pageviews are generated. The comments fly in on the page. People return again and again to read them, creating even more page views and thus ad views. The column gets analyzed on blogs and on sports radio. ...

Dan Shaughnessy Watch is amazed by Massarotti's column today:

His column today was the nastiest, most ignorant piece I have ever read. It tops even Shank's 38pitches parody. ...

A Northeastern journalism professor wants answers.

Why do so many sports reporters fill reams of paper complaining about how the media cover things? Isn't that complaining about yourself? And who wants to read that? Bruce Allen ponders Tony Massarotti's contribution to the ouevre, in which Massarotti wonders why Tom Brady's baby is getting more press attention than some divorce case that may or may not involve Bill Bellichick. Yes, it's terrible when the media does that, isn't it, Mr.

On Dan Shaughnessy Watch, Jenny takes time off from bashing the CHB to bashing the Herald's Tony Massarotti and whoever fed him the story about Jon Lester's enlarged lymph nodes:

... First of all, whoever leaked this information should be fired. If it was a Sox official, I want them gone. If it was a health professional, I want them gone and I want them arrested for a HIPAA violation (yes, you can be jailed for that).
