Yesterday we exposed some shitbag Babson professor who thought it would be cool to urge the Iranian government to bomb 52 cultural sites in the United States in order to own the Trumpsters.
His page was private, so we only were able to get those screenshots via a mole from his friends list because Turtleboy is everywhere, and we have the best anonymous sources in the media. The blog got a lot of attention and I know a lot of people contacted Babson to let them know about what Professor Ayatollah Assolah posted.
Then today the Boston Herald blatantly stole our story and passed it off as their own.

Even though they stole our story without any citation as to where they got it, I’ll still cite them here, because unlike the Herald we have journalistic standards and ALWAYS cite any source we reference in a blog.
First, I’m shocked they actually took any action. Figured he would get a woke trophy since siding with Iran is all the rage these days on the left. I am happy to see they took some action, but that’s only because he’s an adjunct and has no protection.
But what I’m furious about once again is the mainstream media stealing our work. Let’s be clear – Professor Ayatollah Assahola took this down because we wrote about it. Prior to this people had called him out for it on his page and he still refused to take it down. Then we gave him no choice, the story blew up (no pun intended), and this asswipe “reporter” Alexi Iafrato read it and decided that she was gonna pretend that she was the one breaking the story.
This is what we’re dealing with here:

I don’t give a shit if you like or agree with what I’m about to say, but it’s truth – this chick has a job because she’s a young, attractive woman. She obviously has no ethics or talent, but she can stand in front of a microphone and give you the most BASIC assessment of the Patriots (they lost to the Dolphins, and Ryan Tannehill used to play for them) so she gets a job at the Herald.
Meanwhile, here she is whining about women not being given credit for their own accomplishments.
Thank you @JJWatt for shining a light on this ignorance. Women have their OWN accomplishments that should be entirely attributed to THEM and only them- not their famous significant others – who have nothing to do with the matter at hand. https://t.co/iXdKVmE9Yw

You fraud. You stole our story and then whine about how women don’t get attribution? Shut up.
Not only did we get hundreds of shares of this story on our three Facebook pages, other people were getting hundreds of retweets with it on the Twitter machine.

I know as a fact that the Herald saw our story because this guy says he sent it to them.
Am I happy this guy got exposed by a “major” newspaper? Sure. And I appreciate the effort on the part of Brian. But this is the kind of story that has the ability to become a story that Fox News or Breitbart picks up on. It’s right wing red meat. And when they do, they will cite a source, and the source will now be the Boston Herald because they didn’t cite us. She passed this story off as if she came upon it on “social media,” when in fact it was published on a well known website responsible for taking down the highest ranking hacks in the Massachusetts State Police.
Another source tells us that Kim Bookman from 7 News is messaging people on Facebook looking for the name of the professor as well.
I have emailed Kimberly about this story and would hope she would cite her sources. That screenshot is the intellectual property of TB Daily News.
And now that Steve Robinson no longer produces for Howie it appears as if he’s out of the loop too.

Who wants to tell him?
Oh, and if you want further proof what a dumbass this girl is, here she is retweeting Bill Pulte:
Bill Pulte is a data mining scam artist who pretends to be giving away millions of dollars on social media so that pathetic, desperate people will follow and retweet him in the vain hope that he will throw some scraps their way. The fact that this chick has a job is why the Boston Herald has become such a joke.
