Interesting situation in Miami

    E-mails indicate "relationship" between potential superintendent and former Herald reporter. He says they are doctored/fake.
    Offered without further comment.

    Geez. And if he did have a relationship with her, who cares (other than his wife)?

    Glad I didn't have to write that story.

    Well, Ace, assuming you didn't mean to put on the blue font, if she was covering him and having a relationship with him at the same time, and nobody knew, then a lot of people would care at her paper, and rightfully so.

    Yes. But the story was written as a superintendent having a relationship with a reporter -- not as a reporter having a relationship with a source.

    So that's who cares.

    As a senior school board official, he would be a source.

    He was a source who was a very important and a high-ranking official on her beat, not just a source per se.

    I'm guessing the Boston Globe must be proud of hiring her away from the Miami Herald, given the ethical morasse and the content of those e-mails.

    Any chance this guy is telling the truth?

    The part about it being a concern to the Herald were the last four grafs in a very long story.

    That's my beef.

    If someone doctored the e-mail communications between the guy and the reporter, who would it be, how would they have access and what would the motive be, considering she's no longer on the job or even in town?

    I'm not doubting, I'm just asking. That's some pretty nefarious bullshit, to tamper with e-mail contents. Gotta think a computer forensics person could ID that.

    If the e-mails are legit, the Globe will have to dismiss her post haste.

    Can they legally dismiss an employee for something that happened at a previous job?
