Boston Herald Biography

Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Felons Who Have Completed Their Sentence (Incarceration, Probation, and Parole) Be Allowed to Vote?"
Reasoning:

“An argument can be made that felons who have paid their debt to society have earned a degree of reinstatement and enfranchisement back into that society, but criminals like [Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar] Tsarnaev have not remitted such payment — their transaction is still in progress.”

Boston Herald Editorial Staff, “No, Bernie, Felons Shouldn’t Vote,” bostonherald.com

Description:

“The Boston Herald’s roots date back to 1846 when it was a single two-sided sheet of news published by a group of Boston printers. In more recent times, the media company has been anchored by the 64,500-circulation Herald, known for its eye-catching Page 1 photos and headlines, and also has a loyal online following at BostonHerald.com.”
