Boston Herald's McPhee apologizes

Michele McPhee, the Boston Herald’s ace crime columnist and host of a daily two-hour radio talk show on WTKK, made an on-air comment on Tuesday, Nov. 13 that ruffled a few feathers within the GLBT community.

Here's my original story from EDGE Boston.

After stereotyping the sartorially inclined by saying the industry is dominated by gay men, she made an off-the-cuff retort that could be construed as equating pedophilia with being gay.

McPhee quips: "And who do homosexual men like? Little boys."

On Friday, Nov. 16, she apologized on her WTKK radio show. And on Saturday, the Boston Herald ran a follow up. Read it here.
