Boston Mayor Menino Rejects Chick-fil-A Sandwich at DNC: VIDEO

Menino

A couple of bored Boston Herald reporters wanted to put Boston Mayor Thomas Menino's famed stance opposing Chick-fil-A to the test and shoved a hatechicken sandwich in his face to see if he would bite it.

Said Menino: "No Chick-fil-A for me. You want to make fun of the issue oof division? I'm not there."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

As you may recall, Menino wrote a letter to Chick-fil-A COO Dan Cathy asking him to "back out" of plans to open a restaurant in Boston.

  1. First you spend money to fund their hate, then mock the Mayor for being steadfast. Is someone actually paying you two?

  8. Hooray for "journalism". I'm sure their college journalism professors are so proud.

  9. Most of these so-called journalists really got their training at the Barbizon School of Modelling.

  11. @Blake

    The Herald went off the deep end during the Scott Brown campaign in 2010. How they treat Lizzie Warren is total misogyny and several national papers have called them out on it. MA for all their liberal leanings has never elected a female senator.

  12. It seems disingenuous to say the sandwich is a peace offering considering you can't keep from laughing. When the "journalist" starts the dialog with a lie, nothing of importance is going to happen.

  13. I believe the Herald is a Rupert Murdoch publication, a la the NY Post.

  14. I lived in Boston during the 80s and 90s. If today's Boston Herald is the same as back then, it makes Fox look reasonable.

  15. When did journalists become 12 year old kids?

  16. These "reporters" look like the biggest douchebags on the planet.

  17. That was also the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

  18. The Herald, once a great paper was purchased by Murdoch back '82 and then sold to a News Corp Exec in '94 so Murdoch could expand his empire in the Boston media market and purchase a local TV station. So when you ask is it related to FOX News? Hell yeah. Truth Squad my ass. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Herald

  19. huh? this is journalism?

    Posted by: reality | Sep 5, 2012 3:35:38 PM


  20. Is this journalism or TMZ? Are they trying to be "The Daily Show", cause it isn't happening?!

    Posted by: DAN | Sep 5, 2012 7:34:30 PM


  21. That was a funny bit. I guess it can get kind of boring covering political conventions.

  22. IT WAS SILLY FOR Boston Mayor Thomas Menino TO REJECT A Chick-fil-A SANDWICH. I GUARANTEE - IF I LOOKED IN HIS HOME REFRIGERATOR/FREEZER, I WOULD FIND SOME CHICKEN.

  23. Horton: Can you guarantee the chicken would be Chick-Fil-A????? NO??? I think the bit was funny and the Mayor's reaction was funny. Don't you?

    Posted by: andrew | Sep 6, 2012 1:40:55 AM


  24. CAH: you are missing the point yet again. Who cares if he has chicken in his freezer? It's Chick-Fil-A we are talking about here.

    Posted by: REALLY? | Sep 6, 2012 4:22:35 PM


  25. "ANDREW,"

    IT IS NOT ABOUT THE "TYPE" OF CHICKEN. YOUR POINT OF VIEW SUGGESTS Chick-fil-A's CHICKEN OFFERED TO THE MAYOR WAS TAINTED.
