Friday’s Boston Globe featured a full-page open letter from MSNBC host Rachel Maddow about . . . well, just read it:
The Friday Globe failed to actually report on the dustup, but the Boston Herald – Tabloids Rule! – ran a piece headlined Maddow slams “creep” Brown.
Maddow’s response, via the Herald:
“Scott Brown made this up in order to make money off my name and likeness and I think he should stop. And I think he should apologize.”
Maddow, who lives in western Massachusetts, called Brown a “creep” in a planned MSNBC newspaper ad scheduled to run today and slammed him for sending out a nationwide fund-raising letter this week “smearing me to raise money for himself.”
Except Maddow never did call Brown a creep in the ad.
But why get technical about it when you’re dealing with the Herald?
