    It doesn't seem so, but Minihane certainly engaged in no shortage of gloating over the whole thing, laughing at how Borges has pretty much just completely ruined his career and will never work again.

    (I am not sold on the idea Borges will never work again, but that is what Minihane was doing)

    that's what some are saying here, but that's not what I heard . I just thought Minnihane had this Nick guy on the show explaining how he duped Borges.

    I thought it was established that he put Nick up to it. No?

    Minihane will always be safe as long as his ratings are good. That’s the only thing they care about. I don’t listen very often but I think that eventually people will tire of his drama queen act and all of the inside the station talk will get old and he will have to find a new act.

    Just read the whole thread ( yup too much time on my hands) and was proud, and not surprised, that Every Single Poster called it out as fake, BEFORE WEEI broadcast same.

    Borges to me is like CHB, Tomase, Volin, and Im probably forgetting many others, in that I BEVER read them anymore. Reiss,Curran,and a handful more Ill read.

    Curious to me, that as a professional writer, you would not move heaven and earth to always kill yourself to get a story right. As a professional writer, would not you want your writing to be considered impeccable? Opinions sure can be argued, but facts in your written word is who you are and what you do.

    And now PFT reports the Herald as saying: "Borges’ column has been suspended pending further review."...

    Here's their statement:
    Ref: Boston Herald suspends Ron Borges’ column, apologizes for “erroneous report”

    PFT couldn't help but say: "It won’t be surprising if today’s suspension is the end of Borges’ newspaper career."

    All Minihane cares about is ratings to a point he'll do anything for a listener. He has new bosses and is trying to impress. He threatened to quit a few weeks ago because they were influencing his format.

    WEEI itself is not claiming that, they are just saying:
    Ref: K&C: Herald story on Tom Brady holdout product of hoax

    I'm pretty sure if they instigated it they'd be taking credit for doing so.

    There are some audios/videos in that link but I can't check them out now.

    Kirk's whole schtick is being a douchebag, it's his go-to move.

    Well, where is the announcement? So far, the Herald has only done one of their fantastic "apologies" as if it means something.

    Where is Wickersham's apology? Where is Rolling Stone's apology for all of their lies or what Felger and Mazz are probably still doing all day long, lying over and over and over again, while profiting off the lies?

    We know Goodell won't apologize for cheating, as Kraft bent over again, but at the very least Kraft can demand both Borges and Tomase are sent packing for their damaging lies.

    Nah I'm speculating.

    I just don't see after this how Forgus can't be trusted on any level. Compound that with the cost-cutting/ownership change with the Herald why bother keeping that hack around? Give Jeff Howe a raise. At least hes an honest reporter.

    No chance

    Howe is probably the only guy left at the Herald who I trust for real info, at least covering the Pats.

    Straight shooter, honest and no fake drama crap. He also has real info.

    Minihane is a vindictive, miserable, vulgar douchebag. As am I. Must be why I am a fan, probably the only one here (or the only one who will admit it).

    His glee this morning about the downfall of Borges was hilarious. No sympathy for the supposed journalist who got duped.
