I believe it was in New York State of Mind that Billy Joel suggested contrast among newspapers … the New York Times … the Daily News.
Well, I don’t know about the Daily News, but the Boston Herald responds to the New York Times mea culpa.
Except for the fact that it wasn’t the Boston Herald that responded to New York Times ombudsman Byron Calame. Instead it was obscure Boston Herald columnist Jules Crittenden, a writer the 101st Fighting Keyboarders turn to whenever Christopher Hitchens is sleeping it off in a pool of his own vomit. Claiming that Crittenden speaks for the whole paper would be the same as claiming that David Brooks speaks for the New York Times.
Of course, you may remember the Boston Herald as the newspaper that hired Mike Barnicle after he was fired by the Boston Globe for plagiarism and fabricating stories.
So consider the sources…and that includes poor dumb Dan.
