The hardcounting staff has been keeping an informal tally of journalists threatened with bodily harm by Whitey Bulger.
Here’s what we have so far:
• Boston Herald columnist and former WHDH reporter Howie Carr on ABC’s Good Morning America (video here, around 2:50)
• Former Boston Globe reporter Dick Lehr and current Globe columnist Kevin Cullen:
• Rat Bastards author/former mobster/not really a journalist John “Red” Shea:
Of course, that’s likely just the tip of the iceberg.
So the hardworking staff has set the over-under on threatened journalists at 14 (also known as a Whitey’s Dozen).
Any other journos you can add to the list? Give us a holler or, better, a link.
Thank you for your support.
