So, the Boston Globe published a memo from a former Big Dig employee who said he’d blown the whistle on the tunnel back in 1999. Unfortunately, turns out the memo was fake. Sounds familiar.
Here’s the Boston Herald’s Howie Carr having a little fun with the competition:
Memo to the Globe: Next time, leave the big stories to the big boys. You’ve become an journalistic embarrassment to the journalistic embarrassment that is The New York Times.
He’s got a nice list of the Globe’s biggest gaffes.
