Peter Porcupine offers some insight into Peter Kenney, the Cape Cod Today reporter/blogger who broke the story about disgraced Mashpee Wampanoag leader Glenn Marshall last week. Why didn’t the mainstream media get there first? “It took a curmudgeon with a long memory to do that,” writes Porcupine. Wish we could get Kenney’s local-access show up here in Media Nation.
I talked with Kenney in 1997, when I was reporting a story on the late auto magnate Ernie Boch’s hate radio station on Cape Cod. Kenney had been fired by the station’s general manager, Cary Pahigian, for whom he had some choice words. Still does.
