"Conservative" Boston Herald endorses pro-gay, anti-family liberals over pro-family candidates for Nov. 2 election
Reveals paper's true liberal ideology
POSTED: Nov 1, 2010
Over the last week the "conservative" Boston Herald announced its endorsements for the Nov. 2 general election. The short answer is: From a pro-family perspective they don't get it.
Phony conservative newspaper
Boston is one of the few cities left in America with two daily newspapers. Politically speaking, the Boston Globe is just slightly to the right of Castro. The Boston Herald was traditionally considered to be conservative. And when Patrick Purcell, known at the time as a down-to-earth, religious guy, bought the Herald in 1994, we all thought we'd be seeing a strong conservative presence to balance off the Globe -- not unlike the Manchester Union Leader in spunk.
But that didn't happen. Purcell made his peace with the Boston liberal establishment and most of the Herald staffers are indistinguishable from Globe staffers, and they promote the same liberal agenda as the rest of the Boston media. Purcell tries to create a façade of a "conservative" alternative to the Globe by printing some conservative opinion columns on the editorial page and occasionally endorsing Republicans. But in reality their heart hasn't been in it. It's really more like a New England edition of the socially liberal New York Post. So don't get fooled any more.
Endorsing anti-family candidates
The Herald chose only a handful of races among over a hundred to make endorsements in. Among those are:
At this point the only things consistently worth reading in the Herald are Howie Carr's column and occasionally Joe Fitzgerald's column. Their editorial staff is as bad as the Globe's. In other words, when it comes to social conservatives, they don't get it.
