Yesterday Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr whacked Barney (Not So) Frank around for “[going] to the mat in obtaining a six-figure hack job for his then-boyfriend, Herbie Moses, at, of all places, Fannie Mae” in 1991. After trotting out the usual litany of Frank’s past peccadillos (Paging Mr. Bottom, paging Mr. Hot Bottom), Carr went after another favorite target:
One last question: When do you think El Globo will report this story?
Answer: Today, on page 2, above the fold, in a lot more detail than the Herald (which, by the bye, the Globe piece credits for having the story first).
Can’t imagine any of that satisfied Howie. But he’ll be pleased to know the Globe buried the story on its website.
