The lead story of the moment on FoxNews.com--"BULLIED EVEN IN DEATH?"--deals with nasty comments made the Facebook memorial set up for Phoebe Prince, the South Hadley girl who, apparently, killed herself due after some extremely ugly bullying.
But the Fox story doesn't tell us what those comments were. Similarly, Margery Eagan's column in today's Herald describes the relentless quality of 21st-century bullying, but omits actual comments from Prince's tormentors.
Yesterday on CNN's "Reliable Sources," Howie Kurtz and his panelists sized up the media's inattentiveness--until very late in the game--to the possibility of a Scott Brown win in that US Senate that belongs to the people, but was filled by Ted Kennedy for a really long time.
There's plenty of interesting stuff to ponder in the transcript of Kurtz's show, include WTKK-FM host Margery Eagan's theory that, with the Patriots out of the playoffs, Brown was the beneficiary of energy usually devoted to the team.
I.e., back in the good old days, when it was a "writer's paper." And writers were given...latitude to ply their craft.
Can someone remind me why this guy is presented as an expert on the Globe's alleged decline under New York Times Co. ownership? After all, it's hard to imagine a more biased source.
BTW, if you think Barnicle's description of the Times Co.
In today’s Boston Herald, columnist Margery Eagan touches on an interesting point:
This mess just won’t end.And if it doesn’t end soon--like today--the Democrats will lose in November. Again.The mess I refer to? Hillary supporters’ continued up-the-ante demands for respect and validation, for hurt feelings to be soothed, voices to be heard, etc.
