I laugh out loud when I read George Boardman’s column in The Union. This blog has repeatedly pointed to his errors, corrections, misjudgments and on and on — as have The Union readers and others.
His column ought to be renamed “Mr. Incompetence.”
So it makes me laugh when he stands on his podunk little soapbox to wag his finger at Facebook, Google and Twitter, as he did in his column this week.
George once crowed about selling his stocks before Trump was elected. (Since then the stock market —including “FANG,” short for Facebook, Apple, Netflix and Google —has roared higher). You have to wonder if he’s a little bitter — or if this curmudgeon ever owned them.
Then Boardman wraps up his column throwing mudballs at the local GOP, who took him to task for being a simpleton. Boardman did the same with SYRCL. But he doesn’t address the meat of their concerns: That his comments were “incomplete and inflammatory” — a common criticism of Boardman’s columns.
