Making sense of the mortgage crisis

    Too bad this was the only thing that caught your eye at one Herald sq. They did a pretty good job on a three part story on the mortgage meltdown

    DK – On my drive into the city this morning, I heard WBZ report the story just as it appears the Herald did. I thought it sounded like a strange response from the Clinton campaign, and was curious as to why other outlets hadn’t run with it (on the heels of the sniper comment, it would fit the narrative perfectly). I guess WBZ got duped too.

    Anon 4:49: The Herald’s doing a very nice job on the mortgage meltdown, and I’m going to try to say something about it tomorrow.

    Umm. . . the Heraldos didn’t see the Sunday a.m. shows. (Nancy’s comment): They must have been in church.— Larz

    This pales in comparison to 2004 when the Boston Globe ran photos submitted by Boston City Councillor Chuck Turner and chronic talk show caller Sadiki Kambon, purporting to show U.S. troops gang-raping Iraqi women. Of course those photos were fakes, downloaded from pornographic websites and debunked by World Net Daily a week before the Globe even ran them. The Herald’s error isn’t even in the same category.

    DK – I too heard this on WBZ, and am sad to learn it’s a hoax – it’s so something that SHOULD have been true….

    Andy Borowitz was a legend at Harvard Lampoon, and was the pioneer in the now-common trend of Lampies going on to careers in film and TV. Before Borowitz, there was the odd success story in entertainment, but the Lampoon was viewed as a diversion before Wall Street or law school.Bob in Peabody

    I would say I’d fee safer around Dick Cheney than I would around Aaron Burr. At least Cheney shot his guy by accident.Just my $10.Bob in Peabody
