www.celticslinks.com - I still can't compose anything here. It's going to take a little while to find the words.
Tony Massarotti, come on down... Massarotti has been with the Herald since 1989, as he joined the paper fresh from Tufts University. He was the Massachusetts Winner of the 2001 National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association Sportswriter of the Year award. He's been covering the Red Sox since 1994, but in recent years has moved into … Continue reading Approval Ratings – Tony Massarotti
With the NBA Finals tapping off tonight, it's appropriate that we look at the man that his Boston Herald profile calls "the dean of NBA beat writers in continuous service with a team." Steve Bulpett has been on the Celtics beat since the Bird days, and has seen plenty of ups, but probably more downs during his time … Continue reading Approval Ratings – Steve Bulpett
So is he a newspaper writer, radio personality or television host? Felger holds all three roles at the moment, though his work at the Boston Herald has been scaled back considerably. He first joined the paper in 1989 and worked his way up to the Bruins beat where he served from 1997 to 1998 before … Continue reading Approval Ratings – Michael Felger
From the Herald's Point After blog today, which carries the byline of John Tomase: Andrews was pulled over in Lowell on Feb. 5, just two days after the Super Bowl, with three pounds of pot and over $6,800 in cash. On Boston.com's Reiss' Pieces, posted by Chris Gasper today: Andrews was pulled over by police … Continue reading Tomase – Whoops He Did It Again
Adam Reilly talks to Herald editor Kevin Convey about why the specific editors that worked with John Tomase on the story have not been named. In answer, Conveys says to Reilly: The issue of the editors' involvement was on the front page and back page of the Boston Herald, and in my editor's note. I think … Continue reading Editor’s Identities Not “In The Best Interest Of The Paper”
I still can't decide on the Tomase explanation. I'm sufficiently assured that Tomase knows he truly screwed the pooch on this one. I'm disappointed in it because it was so hyped by the Herald- clearly they're tried to capitalize on all the publicity this is generating. They appear to be firm subscribers to the notion that there's no such … Continue reading Where Are The Editors? Tomase Abettors Need To Be Named.
(Edit: 10:00am - Tomase has also posted some specific apologies on the Point After blog as an addendum to the explanation story below.) Um....so that's it? Really? Here's the thumbnail version of John Tomase explanation before you decide to go out and buy the paper or click and read the story yourself: A couple people told me that … Continue reading Tomase Explanation A Bit Light In Detail
There will be no approval ratings today. Instead, we're going with this analysis of the Boston Herald's ongoing apology. Has the Boston Herald been carefully orchestrating this whole walkthrough apology in order to generate the most attention (and revenue)? It would appear so. Yes, I certainly wanted more from the paper than simply the statement that … Continue reading Herald, Massarotti Continue Alienation of Readers
