Boston.com Fires Writer Who Joked About Death Threat Against John Boehner

Good. He deserved to be fired.

From Mediaite…

Boston.com Editor Fired over Post Mocking Boehner Threat

An Ohio bartender threatened to poison John Boehner and ended up being indicted this week over the death threats. He worked at a bar Boehner attended and claimed it would have been so easy to slip something in the Speaker’s drink to poison and kill him.

A story on Boston.com about this featured the headline “Would Anyone Have Noticed if Bartender Succeeded in Poisoning John Boehner?” and made some rather snarky remarks about Boehner’s present health. Boehner’s office condemned the “insensitive” story, and the writer of that article has now been fired.

It looks like the guy knows he screwed up…

Good luck with that.

I hear The New Republic is hiring.
