Observations on politics, the media and life in Massachusetts and beyond from the left side of the road.

The Herald could feel pretty comfortable bannering their Page One story as an exclusive. No self-respecting news organization (note that qualifier as you analyze anyone who picks it up) should touch this dead horse they are beating long after it was buried.

If the "enterprising" Dave Wedge and his editors believe this is the most important story of the day, perhaps they should take up the cause of every other inmate in the system who believes he or she is wrongly accused.

LaGuer already has had more than his 15 minutes of fame, having snookered lots of people, including John Silber. I guess the infallible Herald leadership really is part of that group if they feel his request is so important as to warrant this sort of front page treatment.

Memo to Herald editors: It become news is Deval Patrick agrees to the request or takes any action that would assist him before the court process plays out.

Unless of course you are doing someone else's bidding. But that doesn't happen in newspapers that believe in the "fair and balanced" ideal of its former owner Rupert Murdoch. Does it?

If you're looking for something to wrap today's garbage in, the Herald is the perfect choice.
