Today’s Pols and Politics feature in the Boston Herald mentions Herald scribe Tony Massarotti’s appearance
on Finneran’s Forum, in which Tony says he has no respect for “courtroom liars” like
Barry Bonds. There was an embarassing silence.
“Discussing Barry Bonds federal perjury rap on his radio show Friday, ex-House Speaker Tom Finneran opened up somewhat of a Pandoras box when he asked Herald baseball guru Tony Massarotti for his feelings on the case.
“Massarotti proceeded to rail against Bonds for allegedly lying under oath, saying he had no respect for courtroom liars.
“Finneran, who pleaded guilty to federal obstruction of justice charges for misleading a grand jury, was painfully silent. You could almost hear the flummoxed felon squirming in his chair. After Massarottis colorful analysis ended, Finneran abruptly thanked him for coming on the show and went to a commercial.”
