The g.m. of Boston’s WBUR-FM tells the Boston Phoenix that he’s been talking with Mike Barnicle, the local columnist who faced accusations of plagiarizing material in the late ’90s. “I had nothing but the best of experiences with Mike for 23 years…. I think he’s a voice that’s missed in Boston,” says Paul La Camera. On his blog, media watcher Dan Kennedy reminds readers that the most recent accusations “were only the latest in a quarter-century of similar, very credible complaints.”
