We have an update on the story published last night about the Bruins photoshopping out a Boston Police logo from Charlie Coyle’s shirt on IG and Twitter. Clay Travis’ Outkick the Coverage has also picked up the story.
The Boston Bruins appear to have photoshopped out a Boston Police Department logo from one of their player’s tshirts. https://t.co/QaCljgzfoe

Boston Globe reporter Matt Porter, who criticized Tuukka Rask for wearing a Boston Police hat during a press conference, has responded to an email inquiry from a turtle rider.
“It’s quite clearly fabricated. I’m sorry you believe it.”
Silly peons, believing things you can clearly see with your eyes! This is a man who works at the Boston Globe, home of Kevin Cullen. They don’t print fake news.
Sure, here he is in a video the Bruins published yesterday wearing the BPD shirt.

Sure, you can see him in the gym wearing that same shirt, and in one photo he has the logo clearly displayed, and in the other it has magically disappeared.
Sure, you can see both sides of the shirt in this video while he’s playing basketball, in case they try to say it’s a different shirt, and it clearly matches the one for sale from the BPD.

But remember what Matt Porter said.
We’re the ones who “clearly fabricated” that evidence backed story, not the Bruins.
I’d message him on Twitter about it but he blocked me.
And because he works for the Globe he’ll just continue to ignore this like it never happened because that’s what fake news does. In reality Matt Porter pressured his friend Matt Chmura to photoshop the logo out. To people like him it’s shameful to be associated with the police, but virtuous to be associated with an organization that wants to abolish the police.
