Jay Severin is back, and Scott Lehigh is watching

A couple items from today’s Boston Globe:

I’m afraid I don’t have time to comment right now (I’m not getting paid to do this, you know) but I did want to go on record to point out that SeverinWatch was here before Jay Watch. And I want to note that the two endeavors have very different agendas. Lehigh is more concerned about Severin’s tone and seems to think that checking Severin’s facts is a lost cause. I am much less concerned about derogatory language and much more worried about distortion of the truth.

We’ve all heard the saying about “sticks and stones,” and I think that applies here. Jay is unlikely to sway public opinion through name-calling alone. It’s the combination of name-calling and lies that is truly dangerous.
