Fail: Boston Herald accidentally labels Dunkin' Donuts a terrorist organization

Ruh roh. An editor at Mediate grabbed this screenshot of the Herald's website yesterday -- accidentally using the second-coming-of-bin-Laden terror banner when they presumably meant to use the fellating-the-advertisers banner. 

Meanwhile, in other Herald-fail news, former Herald editor Kevin Convey was canned yesterday from the NY Daily News -- to make way for the former editor of Rupert Murdoch's disgraced News of the World. Adding insult to injury, unnamed newsroom sources quoted by Capital NY said "people felt [Convey] was definitely not ready for New York City," that Convey "looked lost" and "even had to be led to the subway," and that "he dressed funny. What type of Editor-in-Chief wears Chuck Taylor All-Stars to work?" (Hey, wait a minute . . . )

That was just too juicy for Boston Globe editor Marty Baron, who performed the media version of an end-zone dance by tweeting a link to the Capital NYC story while adding, "Short tenure for former @bostonherald editor at NY Daily News; i.e. the usual tenure for editors there." Ouch.
